Got the opportunity to do a little filming for Florida International University's Diversity Week 2011. There were a number of events organized by the Office of Equal Opportunity Programs and Diversity, but this one in particular caught my interest, TAG: The Art of Giving.
The TAG project is a fund raising campaign organized by the FIU Art + Art History Department to assist children in some of the world's most neediest countries. As part of FIU's Diversity Week, TAG organized donations of shoes to be hand painted by FIU University students, FIU Children's Creative Learning Center students, as well as walk-in volunteers.

Some Technical Notes:
Gear: Kessler Crane K-Pod Tripod, KC-8 Ultra Crane, & Revolution Head, GlideTrack Shooter HD, Manfrotto 190XProB Tripod and 501 Head
Cameras: Canon 5DMKII w/ Canon 100mm f/2.8L IS Macro & Canon 7D w/ Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8
Gear Assistants: Ruben Rivero & Noelle Laforest
Observations: I like the size of my GlideTrack Shooter HD, since it can mount to my Manfrotto sticks really easily, but it was sticking in some of the shots... really need to invest in a Kessler Crane Pocket Dolly :)
I really love the performance of the KC-8 Crane and the Revo Head, but I have quite a bit to learn about recording movement with them... going to be a fun and enjoyable time experimenting :)
