That´s right I´m in Iceland now, I like Narvik but I just got a little tired of it. The darkness, the expensive food and beer and some work issues got to me but the main bug was the long distance relationship with Anna. So after thinking about all these things I decided to fly home, arrived in Iceland on wednesday. I´m going to stay here for a while now, maybe until I start the Digital filmmaking and animation diploma in Barcelona, Spain. This is something that is on the 2010 plan as well as buying better filmmaking equipment.
But to break things up Me and Anna are going to visit Innsbruck, Austria for two weeks in easter, for some snowboarding, hopefully in powder.
Anyway, now I have time for some building projects, I already started by buying the materials for a jib crane. When the crane is ready, (hopefully in a week or two) I´ll post some information how I built it. I shot some test footage with the Canon EOS 7D and the Canon XH-A1 and compared some things with my little Sony SR1. The tests will be on here shortly, as well as a little video about my homemade cold shoe adapter, It works well for my Rode Videomic and is ideal if you don´t like the annoying Sony hot shoe mount for accessories.
