After The Trophies Are Handed Out and The Glory Fades There’s Still Work To Do

DSC07129

Those that know me know that power tools and me are generally not the best of friends.  I am not ashamed to say that Sista Felicia is probably 20 times more skilled with powertools as I am.  That’s a combination of how great she is with them and how god awful I am.

But after the fun and glory of the Horribles Parade award ceremony the part that no one looks forward to is the dismantling of the float. 

Finished and Trailer returned at 9:30PM!

Sweat equity baby!

Thanks Ed, Ron, Felicia, BJ, Barry and Amanda

Quote Of the Week From Greg Bover

From the deck of SV Linnet in the Deer Island Thoroughfare near Stonington Maine.

“Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.” Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (1900-1944) Born into an aristocratic family, the Comte Saint-Exupéry studied at the French Naval Academy and architecture at the École des Beaux-Arts before joining the army in his early twenties and learning to fly. He became a celebrated airmail pilot on the route between Toulouse and Dakar (Senegal), and wrote movingly in high French style about his life as a pilot. During the Second World War, exiled to New York from Nazi-occupied France, Saint-Exupéry wrote his best known work, The Little Prince, a work of philosophical reflection masquerading as a children’s story. Returning to Europe to fight with the Free French, late in the war, Saint-Exupéry was lost at sea during a photo-reconnaissance flight. He was the recipient of the Légion d’honneur.

Emma and Dan Talbot are celebrating their wedding anniversary. But sometimes love in the suburbs can get a bit messy.

Staring Nicole Trauffer and Matt Stapleton
Voice of Margo performed by Taylor Macomber
Written & Directed by Rick Macomber

Part of the July 1, 2012 "Under 3 Minute Film Challenge" sponsored by Anticipate Media and Macomber Productions. For this challenge each cinematographer, using a pen as a prop, had to produce a narrative script and shoot it in a few hours on location at The Willows Park in Salem, MA. In addition the phrase "This isn’t going to be easy" also had to be used in the story.

The actors did an amazing job performing on such short notice. Thanks to all of the crew and special thanks to The City of Salem and to Florence and George Ahmed of Salem Willows.

Here’s another one to check out by Paul Antico titled "Timing" vimeo.com/45105680

All of the shorts in this challenge were filmed on the Canon Cinema EOS C300.
