I'll be writing more about it later - once the video's are complete - but here's some pictures from the event:

Todd Mahoney brought along this little gem. A Shur-Line 06572L painters-pole with an adapter that lets him mount a GoPro Hero.I always find it interesting to watch other's when they are shooting; how they set things up, placement of the actors and camera, and how they handle lighting. And when it's a project like this; where time is of the essence, but ultimately the only client is the person that had the idea, you can learn a lot. Fortunately, it was also a nice day - not too hot - and it was a really good group of people who showed up. The only downside; we could have accomplished a lot more with a second C300!
Paul has already posted a trailer for his movie:
