Welcome in Mike. Now rock that Kessler!
I'm not expecting to have it in time so I'm going to plan the shoot without it.
If I do get it... it will be a huge bonus. :2vrolijk_08:

Thanks again for the poster!

:nads: Low blows of low blows! I'll be there dammit... I'll be there. When you planning on shooting anyway? I'd imagine (know) that December would be tricky.... unless you want to shoot without snow...

Michael Anthony Horrigan
12-02-2009, 02:13 PM
Probably not until after Christmas. I'll be we get snow soon though. We usually do. :)
We've already had a little taste the other day.

What is snow? Is that something I should be fearful of...

:)

Looking forward to it, Mike.

I can see it now in the "Winners" post.

"The Vessel" 4th place, but due to an agreement made earlier, he is now last place in the fest. His prizes go to the next person.

Michael Anthony Horrigan
12-04-2009, 01:59 PM
Luckily 4th place doesn't get a prize.
Special awards withstanding, but those are usually unrelated to placement.

Bam!

I'm not going to guess because its always a wonderful surprise that comes from Michael. I rather leave it that way.

Rodney V. Smith
12-04-2009, 02:33 PM
Even if you guess (and you wont) it's the execution that really gets you. That's the essense of a Horrigan film. Even the script doesn't do it justice.

So what's going on Mike? You having a busy weekend or something?

So what's going on Mike? You having a busy weekend or something?Crazy.

Busy decorating the house, doing some Christmas shopping, going out to a few dinners, etc...

Thanks for the kind words, guys.

Oh yeah, lots of people were buying their trees this weekend. Busy times these are.

12-06-2009, 09:21 PM
What? You are spending time with friends and family instead of working on your film!??@@!
Cool. As you get older this time of year begins to take on new meaning, at least it has for me. Glad to hear you are working the Christmas spirit!
I hope you are having a good time. And can't wait to hear some details of how your film is shaping up.

Michael Anthony Horrigan
12-07-2009, 08:58 PM
Having a good time, thanks.
Lots of crazy dinners and busy weekends leading up to the new year though.
I'm pretty swamped. :)

I probably won't get much done until then, maybe some casting. I think I have the lead role cast. Just working on a few things.

Thanks, Justin. I think... :undecided :Drogar-BigGrin(DBG)

I just wanted to post this here as well. I received some good news yesterday.


I just wanted to say thanks to the Mods, Jason, and Chris at Kessler.

I received my Kessler Crane (http://www.kesslercrane.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=blogcategory&id=41&Itemid=104) in good order yesterday. In the middle of a snowstorm no less. :)
Looks great! I can't wait to play with it.

Thank you very much for such a awesome award. I really appreciate this and will definitely put it to good use.

Thanks again,

Mike :2vrolijk_08:

We might as well all go home now. WTF??? Why can't you just play fair, Mike? :undecided

Seriously, I can't wait to see how you put it to good use. Nobody uses the dolly like you, so I'm sure you'll come up with some sweet shots.

Now, where's my mini-slider? :cry:

Definitely looking forward to this.

Thanks, everyone. I was off my PC for a while over the holidays so I hope everybody had a good one!

I'm back on track and working on securing a location now.
Got a new tripod and new head over the holidays.

http://images.manfrotto.com/imageservlet/image?sysid=125449688062555010&format=gitzo_product_big&refresh=null

I can now kick the old one with the busted leg to the curb. If you saw it you would know what a huge upgrade this is.
When actors start to tease you about it you know it's time. :)

01-04-2010, 07:21 AM
Sweeeeeeeeeeeeet! Excellent to have. Which legs did you get?

ZazaCast
01-04-2010, 07:26 AM
Excellent! Now pull the head off the old one and build yourself a slider.

Excellent! Now pull the head off the old one and build yourself a slider.
This is how crappy my old one was... it doesn't come with a removable head.
And the head it does have is for still photography. :)

I'll post the pic of the new tri-pod later when I find it.
Looks a lot like this one...

http://images.manfrotto.com/imageservlet/image?sysid=125449430665638113&format=gitzo_product_big&refresh=null

Nothing too heavy duty but the new HDV head that I have will make it quite useful.

Rodney V. Smith
01-04-2010, 07:49 AM
Rock on! Mike's major upgrade. Makes me wonder though: What tripod are you gonna use for the Kessler?

RodThompson
01-04-2010, 11:26 AM
Are you rocking the HV20 on this one?

Michael Anthony Horrigan
01-04-2010, 12:00 PM
Rod, I may. I may try renting something else. I'll have to see what I can come up with.

Rodney, this tripod will get the bulk of the use. Nice and easy to sit on the dolly as well. I know a guy that will lend me a much stronger one when I go to shoot so I'm good for the crane when I need it.

MAH

Rodney V. Smith
01-04-2010, 12:45 PM
Well that's a relief. The tripod is usually the weak point of a jib system. Well that and inferior materials... but you don't have that worry since you have the much vaunted Kessler. Good to know you'll be rocking the Kessler PLUS the dolly... that in combination with your script... damn you!

Robbie Comeau
01-07-2010, 01:09 PM
Welcome in Mike. Now rock that Kessler!

Or the Vessler ;)

Bad joke?

Robbie

Michael Anthony Horrigan

Dropping out. The short won't make it in time, too many hang ups.

I'll see what I can do about entering something else but this one won't see the light of day for this Fest. I'll save the script though in case I can do it down the road.

Good luck to everyone entering! Should be a good Fest.

Sorry to hear this news Michael... but I feel your pain. I'm sure you'll come up with something else, there's still plenty of time...and if not, another fest always follows!

It is incredible for me to get one in to this fest but I will,
even if it's raw unedited footage! LOL!

Michael Anthony Horrigan

Oh well. Good luck to the rest of you. I'll be watching and commenting as usual.
Looking forward to it actually.

You make me cry...both by dropping out, and for now making me feel insecure when I'm in the shower at the gym.

BTW, 'When Stars Collide" is a comedy I wrote and it just took third place in ScriptFest. :)
