What exactly is that, you ask? Here are a few of the things I did:
- Simulated the Moon with an LED lighting kit
- Configured and balanced a STEADICAM system (I could do this in my sleep or on a boat
- Created an intricate network of extension cords
- Ingested and archived all digital video files
- Rigged DSLR cameras and monitors to various moving vehicles using a triangulated mounting kit. That Trigonometry class from college finally paid off!
- Ok here’s my favorite – you know those mounted vehicle cameras I just told you about? I also drove the truck that the cameras were mounted to. This requires an extreme level of skill and hand-eye coordination that took over 20 years of video gaming to develop. Yes I can play the Ocarina. In real life and on the N64. Yes, I can drive a boat or small ship. Have you ever navigated a 30 foot Sea-Ray along the Ontario/Ohio border while trolling fishing rods in the rain with 10 foot waves? Sounds like a nice little weekend to me.
- Collected field audio and did other “Tech Ninja” things
