I also had the opportunity to do a few days at Xow! Studios helping out animators Eric Towner and David Candelaria on an in-house music video project. I was shooting some of their characters against green and blue screen for some really interesting composite shots using live-action footage. They were also having a really amazing warehouse set built for the other scenes in the video. I'll see if I can drop by once that is up and lit to take a few more pictures.
On a side note, there have been some new digital still cameras released recently, and I have seen three of them in action.
Screen Novelties is now shooting with the Sony DSC-R1.
Xow! is now shooting with the Olympus Evolt 330.
And I am now shooting with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30.
These cameras all have some small issues, but I've worked with each of them and they all produce very nice final images. I will devote another post to the details....
