In September I worked as an AD/Sound guy for no money and worked as an HDD Inspector making lots of money balancing me out to breaking even money. And as always some random Brad thoughts/photos to be enjoyed. Plus the Calgary International Film Festival at the end of the month.
Wanting to get more involved in the Calgary Independent film scene I signed up to a few groups on Facebook where I met Luis who wrote Online Mating. Some funny scenes for sure. He wanted to make a 5 minute trailer to eventually use to market the full length feature idea. I had a blast Assistant Directing, Recording Sound and working Camera on a few scenes too.
Check out the Trailer - "Warning: Adult Subject Matter and Language"

Off to work in "the field" again to do some HDD Inspection at a converting from coal to natural gas electricity producing Power Plant near Stettler Alberta. Some great photos and lovely surrounding area. The plant is a lot bigger than it looks, especially noted after taking a tour that had us on the 22nd floor looking all the way down way through the steel grating, yikes. Supervisor Dean said as we got off the elevator "hope no one is scared of heights" But I am, too late!
