From GoPros attached to quadcopters to gimmicky iPhone lens clips, Rafferty Baker and I are always talking about what gear we need to get a great shot.
About a month ago we went out and bought some cheap skateboard wheels and ball-bearings. The plan was to build track dollies for those sweet “unchained” shots.
For the longest time, I was unsure how to tackle the design of the dolly until I saw two old fridge door handles at work. I decided to shelf the track dolly plan for a relatively smaller rail-glider. The two handles were screwed together to create a seamless five foot rail.
After consulting various DIY walkthroughs and hours in Home Depot, I spent most of the day constructing this rail-glider chassis.
It’s far from perfect but it’s a start in the right direction.

This is the second little project that I’ve worked on for Clearbrook Entertainment and this product looks better than the first proposal piece.
The video below is a concept teaser trailer for Joel Ross’ movie Riverside. I am told that he is going to rush that down to L.A. and show it to the people involved in getting this project going.
I am not going to give any of it away, mainly because I don’t know what the real story is all about, but I encourage you to watch the trailer and pass it on.

The first rotation is finally over.
A small group of us were involved in making the weekly student lead television news program BCIT Magazine. The experience was intense and I ended up doing some things I thought I’d never do.
Anchoring was the main event. I didn’t want to have anything to do with the deed but I got my fair share of face time during the past three weeks.
For those of you who don’t know me very well, let me take a minute to tell you a little bit about myself:
I sweat a lot. I am like a blowfish, in the sense that I have a unique self-defense mechanism. Instead of spines pushing out from my skin, I have copious amounts of sweat streaming from my face. It’s an uncomfortable affliction that keeps things awkward most of the time.
My hyperhydrosis is not ideal for doing things that require performing in front of an audience. I have never liked presentations nor the pressure of being calm and serious on camera. Anchoring has never interested me but somehow I ended up anchoring two casts and also delivering a brief weather stand up.
Yes, there were screw-ups. But, keep in mind, this is not my thing. I only wanted a little fun.
I’m sure someone will ask “was it worth it?”
And I’ll answer, “yes, yes it was.”
The United States is still picking up the pieces after the attack on the World Trade Centre ten years ago.
Citizens of Seattle still remember the tragic events of 9/11, even ten years after. Many people walking around the city would run into visual reminders of the historic day. Flags were at half-mast and small memorials littered city parks spent the Sunday immersed in various activities.
In the shadow of the Space Needle, a group of 9/11 Truthers handing out pamphlets and encouraging passersby to question the government.
Across the park, there was another group of people assembled to promote peace and harmony at Memorial Field. The ONE Festival had guest speakers recalling the fateful day ten years ago. Local artists also preformed for the small crowd gathered at the Seattle stadium.
A final memorial at Alki Beach in West Seattle attracted a larger crowd for a candle light vigil. People gathered to sing songs and look on at the tribute to day of remembrance.
