The Games Begin
I have been taking some time away from the website, the podcast and from some projects I have been working on so that I could get some gear together. I am very excited to say that it has not been for nothing. I now have everything I need to make every type of production I have ever been a part of.
Here is a list of my gear:
Panasonic GH5S with a 25mm lens and a Nikon adapter, so I can now use my 35mm, 18-55mm and my 70-300mm lens
Rode NTG2 shotgun mic set that came with a boom pole, cables and goodies and windscreens
GVM 480ls LED production lights
Zhiyun Crane Plus gimbal stabilizer
Tascam audio recorder
Blackmagic video assist recorder
I haven't had a chance to test my new lights much, but in my small tests I've done I have seen that these are going to be some good lights for my needs. All my other gear has had pretty intensive testing and gets me extremely excited about what is to come.
Business Thought of the Day(s)
Thankfully the time away from the website and a few other business things people can see has not meant that the business hasn't been a main subject on my mind. So prepare yourself for a ride here.
Regarding my podcast, which I am very excited to get started again, there have been some changes. No longer is the podcast called the "Holboy Entertainment Industry Podcast", but instead the "Holboy Entertainment Podcast". The change may be minor, but let me explain. The industry part of the title was very limiting. It was making the podcast have to be about video and photo. While that isn't something I am against, it is something I can't see an audience enjoying in the long term. This new title means I can have anyone on the show and we can talk about anything. I absolutely will still talk about photo and video because that's who I am, but now there can be more topics and more variety in guests.
Now for some production stuff. I have been talking with some of my great friends who have passions and goals in line with my own, and we want to make something truly amazing. So starting soon we will be making a short film together. Unfortunately that's all I can really say on that particular project, but this idea sparked more. A film I wrote nearly 4 years ago is finally actually in the works. I have some script changes to work in, but once the script is finished I can get started on the production side of things. The film will be titled "Everything and Nothing". Very excited about this new project and all that is to come with it.
And just a quick update about "Local: A Bike Movie". Production will be starting soon, and I know I have said this before, but now that I have all my gear together it is much more set in stone. I just have to confirm a few more riders and then get this started.
Once I get a few things squared away, I plan to get the podcast started up again and on a consistent schedule. Around that time I also plan to get the blog on a consistent schedule as well. I am very excited about everything going forward! It has been a wonderful journey so far and it's only getting better from here.
If you have any questions about the gear I use, please contact me or leave a comment. I am happy to answer any and all questions. Keeping making awesome stuff out there!
