This is the second replacement for our Rode NTG2 boom mic because the XLR pins are not level. Gonna do a test later today at rehearsal but most likely have to send it back again..
Dipping back into the season 1 archive.
Getting #kickstarter rewards together to send out today! Shirts and postcards for now. Digital downloads and DVDs out later this summer!
Last weekend I was interviewed for ON THE PAGE. It’s now live on iTunes! We talk about how I shot my series “Laps” on an iPhone.
Big thanks to Pilar Alessandra for having me on the show and Aadip Desai for making us all sound good. Hella!

We had an extremely busy—and productive—weekend of preproduction. We had two fantastic rehearsals with our supporting cast, an informative first test shoot with the new equipment, and a wonderful casting session.
We’re proud to announce Kayla Holsey has been cast as Annie!
These rehearsal days saw us working with the new faces to the series. New characters—Joe, Ben, Josi, Cindy, and Adam—each got to meet and do their first work with each other and the original cast. Things went very well, a promising start to a great show.
We finally got to “play” with the center piece of this season…the Canon 5D Mark II. We did some fooling around in different locales with some lighting set ups and the new sound equipment (note—the mic we received was discovered to be defective and caused some sound defects, a new one is on the way).
Principal photography for season 2 of Laps begins June 2013! From now until then, more rehearsals, character profile videos, promo and a new trailer!
