Thanks Nelson! As far as moving the camera around I would have to have somebody else here. Hard to drive the train and work the sound system and move the camera all at the same time when you are a movie crew of one!

Thanks Mark! The sound came from a MRC Symphony 77.

As I continue at a blazing pace it is time to start working on the sides of the hill, starting on the far right side. In this first picture you can see where I painted any areas that I think might end up being exposed and I would want to look like rock.



I then grind on (with a brush) various shades of chalk



Now I'm starting to add the vegetation, this is where progress really slows down as I have to go outside and start hunting for more twigs for armatures

Tyson, I just got back home this afternoon and was able to watch the video. Really interesting. Are the sound effects from a sound chip and speaker? Or something else, such as MRC's "under the table" sound units? (I can't remember the actual product name at the moment.)

Mike the sound came from a MRC Symphony 77, which is basically an "under the table"
system, at least on the Nantahala Midland it is! I think I need more light for video then still pictures and if I do another one I will up the light levels. I doubt the quality from a DSLR will be equal to a regular camcorder though.

Just a few more in-progress shots. I'm spending more time looking for armatures then working on the layout!

Tyson,

The trees are looking real good.

Also the pictures are so much brighter.
Did you add external lighting or edit the pictures with a photo editing program.
From the shadows in the third picture (nice effect) I am guessing more external lighting.

Hi John! I use a Halogen dual workstation (Ace hardware on sale $40) for some pics. The third pic was sidelit with them and no overhead. I'm now taking pics only at night. One of my problems before was the light coming thru the blinds (even though they were closed) was messing up my regular lighting. Never could figure out a good combo of the two so now I shoot only at night or on really overcast days. To be honest these are only progress pics so I didn't take any great pains with em'.

Mike, you are really moving on this project. Nice colors and I like the spacing of the trees. It will allow for undercover brush etc, if that is what you are planning.
