World’s collide: 7D IB5K RNCK Alphabet Soup Extravaganza!!!!!!

Jeremey with Merlin vest and 7D at DWNTWN

In our continued effort to keep the blog posted with what we’re up to, we’d like to announce that we got a Canon 7D DSLR! If you don’t know, learn. If you do know, then yeah… oh yeah. We’re psyched. Welcome back to the party to us.

We’ve had the camera for a little over a week, and we got it just in time for a big job with our friends over at IB5K. Once again, we’re going to be traveling America shooting video. This time it’s mini-docs for Bank of America. But enough about that, we got a 7D! And a Merlin Steadicam (complete with arm and vest)!!

Look out for test footage, we’ll try to post some sooner than later. In the meantime, enjoy these screen shots and stills from a practice shoot we did with our friend Ben Youngerman and his new 5D at the new Dwntwn. I’ll label each pic with camera used and whether it’s a still or screen grab.

…Oh yeah, Dwntwn moved from the Tenderloin to Soma (and into a gigantic space). The new address is 1086 Howard @ 7th St. Head down and check it out. Here’s link to our friend Christian’s blog post from the opening party.

Johnny moved the entire Roughneck operation into the new building. These next few shots are from the Roughneck office. Here’s Johnny and Jimmy Nelson finishing up some work on the new BART Tour flyer.

We’re going to do another practice shoot on Monday (today), and then Abby’s going to cut a mini doc from the new footage. Stay tuned.
