Nothing big needed, just a fluid head for my HVX.
Would like to rent for the day, somewhere between 12-28 to 12-31-08.

Thanks,

Hey Allen,

Happy holidays. Yeah, I sold the Bogen and bought a Vinten but I didn't bring it to Memphis with me.
I traveled with a tripod over thanksgiving and it was'nt pleasant.

What've you been up to?

Welcome to the Mid-South. How's Murmphrica? If anyone says, "Let me show you Orange Mound or Voodoo Village," say, "No, thank you."

Hey Bill,

Im not doing much of anything right now, sadly. I'm testing my Arri IIc Later Tonight though. Video Door needs a new tap camera, and I'm adding a video tap to the optical door, just need to cut some beam splitter glass and find a good tap camera for it. Things will hopefully get back on track on the commercial end of things soon, I hope.

Hope you can find a tripod! What are you working on in Memphis?

It'll pick up, you're a talented guy.

I have family down here but I also got commissioned to shoot a music video.
I was down here last month getting footage in Gatlinburg, Lynchburg, and Nashville.
Now I'm concentrating on Memphis.

The title of the track is "Tennessee".

BTW, I found someone who can rent me a Ronford.

Cheers,

Bill
