Old Dog (teach) New Dog (tricks)
I have submitted a video project proposal for the Olympus "Pen your story challenge
". If I am one of the 6 finalists, I will be producing a documentary video within a documentary video.
I will be using my 30 years of experience, in mentoring my 9 year old grandson to produce his own documentary film - guiding him with regards to scene setting, lighting control, exposure, composition, shooting angles, and editing and production of his piece.
If you find this project to be of interest and would like to see it completed with the help of Olympus providing an E-PL1 camera, lenses and $5000 budget for producing the video - please be sure to help us out by voting with a big THUMBS UP
just under this video - - - before the voting closes in a few weeks. If we receive enough votes, filming will begin before too long and after a month of work, the end result should realized.
You do require a YouTube account for your vote to count - so please sign in before hitting the Thumbs Up (or Thumbs Down but hope not). If you feel so inclined, you are free to create a Youtube account so that you can vote on the winners. Certainly a useful account to have for future upload and distribution of your own videos.
Would you like to know what the Pen your story challenge is about - be sure to visit "getolympus" at Youtube:

If any of you Olympus users aren't aware of this Challenge and would like to participate - then now is the time to submit your video proposal.
I think that this "Pen your story challenge", is a great promotion for Olympus and one that is sure to help with the interest in these great little cameras.
