Podcast with Trudy Stewart and mispon Film Festival.
This past weekend, Trudy Stewart, Festival Director for http://misponfestival.com/2014/12/01/mispon-festival-podcast-9/, invited me to join her podcast recording. We had a great conversation covering topics such as filmmaking, life, art, money, mining, Cypress Hills, the , the Saskatchewan Arts Board, pirating software, and editing old skool with VHS tapes and VCRs. Podcast:
She got me thinking about that old VHS camera. My memory of it is that it was huge and not very comfortable or ergonomic. I figured there might be a photograph lying around in some box with me and that camera. Sure enough, (thanks dad for preemptively scanning it!), seen below on the left is me with camera almost two decades apart from the photo on the right. This isn’t exactly when I first started uses that VHS camera, as there are videos I made with it from 5 years previous, but no photographs. Very fond memories.
Looking at the two photos, I had two thoughts.
1] The modern camera is equally as bulky.
2] I should consider starting up a service where I offer camera manufacturers a photograph with me and their camera. Could be fun.
