This is a great tutorial for broadcasting a live video feed directly from my mac book.

Mac Book

I just purchased a Mac Book for my trip.

I have to say that I'm having slight buyers remorse. But then again, I always seem to feel that way after a purchase. I felt like that after I bought the Canon XL1s, I felt like that after I bought my wide screen monitor, TV, DVD player, the 7S fish, and I'm sure after I buy the Canon HV10.

But now that I've bought it I have to wait until there's 30 days before I leave the country to get my next purchase, the Canon HV10. Hopefull over that time the camera will come down to under $1000.

As with all big purchases you tend to see the price come down shortly after the purchase, but lucky for me in the 20 hours since I got the laptop it hasn't budged.

I ended up saving about $500 on the the buy too, because Kara, my new bestest buddy, bought it through the university which gave me a huge discount. She got something out of the deal as well though (aside from being my bestest buddy), she picked up an IPOD Nano 8 gig for $181 ($199 off the normal price). After much discussion on what we'd get engraved on the back on the ipod (she didn't like my "Slutty slutty slut pants idea) we ended up going with "I fuking love!". I realise that it's misspelt, but apple don't like rude words on their equipment.

So I'm now waiting patiently for the new mac book to arrive, and I'm hoping it arrives at my current address before we have to move out.

I ended up going with
Mac Book 2.0 GHz
2 Gig Ram
160 Gig HD
3 year Apple Care warrenty
Final Cut Express HD

Now I just need a pack to carry it with (here I come and a camera to records stuff to it.

I'm hoping that I can make a little bit of money back on it doing some live video feeds at the local nightclub here, run around with a camera connected to the laptop and streaming through to a base station which ports the picture up on the big screen live and suped up with effects.

Rosie Burgess - FotSun Footage

This was one of the, if not THE, highlight from the festival.

Rosie's cheerful chattering in between each of her feet tapping songs had the audience cheering for more and more.

After catching Rosie's performance on day one i was determined to get her on film the next day.

After a great performance she even had time to pose with me for a quick Polaroid and a chat before heading off to enjoy the rest of the festival.If you like what you see be sure to check out more of rosie's music at and be sure to get her new album when it's released on 5th May.

Keep up the great music! Go Rosie Go.

Discovery Dancers - Bootylishes

I've had another filming session at the Discovery Nightclub on Friday night for the Discovery "Bootylishes" Dancers.

The first filming session was the Discovery Dancers practice session. I was suprised at just how well the girls came up with new routines on the spot, ably lead by Poppi.

The second filming session was for the Discovery Dances and Kid Kenobi, which pretty much entailed the girls doing their thing on the podiums around the club. I've begun to cut up some of the footage and piece it together, and should have something viewable soon.

But here is the footage from the Friday night. These are the dance steps which they were practicing from the first filming session.
