      ‘The Sandman’ is a short film featuring the Trona, California High School Football team as they train and go through Hell Week in preparation for the upcoming Fall 2015 season. "It makes Friday Night Lights look like a cakewalk." Digg.com Directed by Diego Contreras. Created for the www.filmsaboutnumbers.com series | No. 7 Inspired by the biblical story of Jericho, where the Israelites marched and shouted around the fortified wall of an impenetrable city for 7 days, and 7 times on the 7th day. As the army shouted, the walls collapsed, and they took over the city. The film presents the Trona team doing their powerful chants 7 times as they prepare to go to battle against teams much larger than their own. I met these kids by happenstance while scouting for a different project down in Trona. It's been an honor getting to know and hang out with them and the beautiful people of Trona. I've been heavily inspired by the coach and his team's passion, faith, and brotherhood. I hope this film can inspire others as much as they inspired me. --- Director: Diego Contreras Producer: Jens Jacob Co-Producer: Scott Davis Director of Photography: Daniel Stewart Editor / Color Grade: Diego Contreras Sound Design & Mix: Diego Contreras Production Manager: Cara Venter Gaffer: Keitaro Cloward Location Audio Mixer: Mathew Williams Production Company: Sypher Films Director Representation: Bullitt Featuring The Trona Sandman: Coach Curtis Boutte Asst.

          Edited video here: http://vimeo.com/32891265 UPDATE - now flying brushless gimbal see the result here https://vimeo.com/66985973 The camera is simply awesome, I beat the snot out of it all weekend and it is still playing hard and having fun. I left a couple of crashes in the video, the camera is BELOW the arDrone so it lands first... incredible strong camera. Camera mounted with a 3D printed bracket to the bottom of the arDrone, facing backwards so the props do not show up in the image. The drone is controlled with the RCmod, the desert posed two big problems, WIND.. shoot, some of the video is filmed while flying full stick to stay in one place.. and secondly, getting up high, I learned the hard way that it is very hard to see the drone against the sun..! Maybe a third problem is when getting up high it is impossible to see when the battery light flashes.. ending up in some rather fast landings when the battery runs out. The video still need color correction and editing to be about 3-5 minutes.. this is the pull-tape with the stuff to use for editing. there is some yaw vibration, I will run those pieces through iStabilize before editing. The GoPro bracket I designed for the arDrone can be found here http://www.shapeways.com/model/422364/beefy_gopro_hero_bracket_for_the_ardrone___rear_fa.html The RCmod control system can be found at http://macdrones.com/

After making his way back to civilization, and encountering a handful of local personalities, the man decides to abandon his former life and reinvent himself as the owner of a junkyard in a ghost town. When his initial euphoria subsides, loneliness and boredom compel him to seek out company. In a nearby town he meets a waitress and her brother, who introduce him to a circle of desert misfits. A desperate night of excess with the group leaves the man faced with a choice between the desolate desert or the desolate city. Alternately introspective, vulgar and comedic, Trona draws inspiration from the landscape and the people of the Mojave Desert. Junkyards, motel rooms, dilapidated structures and abandoned landscapes are all characters in their own right, playing opposite the quiet, mustached protagonist.
