House was Robbed Glasgow new years

Welcome 2013: got robbed on last day of the year

Well, this is the first chance I’ve had to post about this, because my Laptop were stolen and so I haven’t been able to write about it.

I was in Glasgow, Scotland for New year, and was staying at Ross’s house. on 31st Dec we  all went out for lunch in the afternoon and came back to find his neighbours and his apartment was broken into and almost everything was robbed. I lost my Macbook Pro (with all recent work done) my HTC sensation smart phone, my friend lost his brand new Canon 5D Mk3 DSLR camera that he just bought last week after saving for almost a year and many other electronic stuff including most his backup harddrive with all the work over the years.

Obviously, whoever did this had kept watch on the house because were out for only 2 hrs and they did this in the afternoon.

I’m trying to be upbeat about it, as we cant really do anything about it now but learn a good lesson about why insurance is very important.

I feel really bad for Ross, they also took Amands’s bag with her bank card and they also tried to ring the bank and impersonate bank as her so they could access the card.

I have decided now to not think too-much about and start the new year with a fresh and much secure approach as 2012 is past and 2013 is just ahead.

While 2012 was productive, I am looking forward to a much more productive 2013. Wishing all an incredibly positive 2013! . I hope the universe makes some of your dreams come true this year, and that you’re successful in overcoming some of your own challenges.

This new years evening  has been shocking, but I can find some positives to these negative situation.

I wish everyone  A Healthy, Happy, Safe, Peaceful, Productive, Creative, and Prosperous New Year 2013

Rooster Must Die Still 11

THE ROOSTER MUST DIE (2012)

DIRECTOR: Parag Sankhe PRODUCER: Debora Setnik
The Rooster Must Die is a gripping and funny short film that tells the story of a classic clash between traditional rural life and those who wish for a quieter and more suburban existence.

Inspired by the dramatic tousles between man and nature that characterised the iconic 1975 feature film Jaws, The Rooster Must Die focuses on what happens when a group of angry villagers join together to try and impose rule on a Rooster that is causing them all great distress.

When the village chairman comes under increasing pressure to find a solution he turns to Jack, a local hard man, who is very confident that he will have no problems in handling the irritating Cock.

Jack, however, soon learns that his enemy is considerably more cunning than the average chicken and when their plans for a quiet life go horribly wrong the villagers discover that an angry Rooster can wreak just as much havoc as a hungry shark.

Cornwall, England July 2010 Canon 500D Video test

I shot this in Cornwall, England in July 2010 for testing the video option of my new Canon Rebel T1i / EOS 500D camera. It’s shot on 720 HD at 30 fpsLenses used
18-55mm kit
Canon 75 – 300 MM Zoom
I used macro extension bellows for flowers and snail.its edited in final cut pro and colour graded in Adobe after effects CS5 – i’m very impressed with the video recording on this entry level Canon 500D camera. No audio inputs in this one (this camera does record audio, but with an on board mic, so quality isn’t good) so if you want to use it for a short film, use an external DAT/sound recorder and a Clapper Board.
If you are really into the video side of the DSLR cameras then the new Canon 550D looks very impressive to me as it has an audio input connection so that you can use an external microphone.
