Day 125: Revenge of the Camcorder

It’s taken a lot of research but I finally have bought and ordered all of the equipment I need for the Eternal Camping Indiegogo video. Just to clarify: this isn’t necessarily the equipment we will use for the film (although some of it we can).

Today was buying the last and yet most important piece of the puzzle: a Sony HD Video Recording HDRCX405 Handycam Camcorder. I also bought a 64GB memory card to go with it. The cost is higher than I was willing to pay a week ago but I decided that it would be worth it. It helps that I got a pretty good deal on the camcorder/flash card and the warranties (yes I opted for the warranties).

So equipment for the Indiegogo video? Check. Location? Check. All I need now is a crew for the January 30th shoot.

There are also a few updates I’d like to relay on this post:

[*] I am still in need of a crew for the Indiegogo video pitch on  January 30th. If you are interested, feel free to e-mail me. I need a DP, a boom operator, and perhaps a gaffer. You’ll get pizza, Coffee Bean, and I will give you a credit in the final film product as part of the Indiegogo team!

[*] Thank you to everyone who has auditioned so far! As a note, I don’t plan on really reviewing the submissions until February rolls around.

I especially need submissions for Houston, Laredo, Antonio, and Dallas.
