Nov Recap

Posted by mikehedge on November 26, 2010

November so far has been an interesting month. Lots of projects being finished. A bunch of neat projects from friends being finished, announced, or launched.

My friend Tom Lowe has been out shooting a great film all over the southwest. He recently launched the teaser for the film:

My friend LYNX, has launched her new album! Here’s a track from the record:

Ayz’s new teaser for Dan Gaud’s new film project DAYLIGHT launched!!! Here’s the Quiet Earth post about it. (They shot on RED998 with anamorphic lenses.)

While Macgregor was in LA, we did a pick up shoot for a project we shot while on the crazy CA roadtrip adventure last year. Shooting in downtown LA is always beautiful. Especially with people like Ayz, Ruairi, and Macgregor.


November was the theatrical release of Lucy Walker’s great documentary, Waste Land. I got to attend the LA premiere where Lucy did a great Q&A.


Speaking of Waste Land, it along with another one of my favorite IDA documentaries This Way of Life, were named on the short list for the 2011 Oscars!!!

November also marked the release of the new teaser for Ruairi Robinson’s film BLINKY. This is a film that I was the 2nd AD on, as well as still photographer. The film stars Max Records.

During November we had tons of great news for our film UYUNI.


We got into another dozen or so film festivals!!! Including: RegiĆ³n de Murcia, Arona, Cineclub Soria, IKUSKA. We won second prize at Orotava, and we won 1st Prize at Eibar.

The last few days of November I got to visit the Hoover Dam and the new Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge. It was quite a site to see. We got to walk out on the bridge and look back on the Hoover Dam, then we did the walk along the Hoover Dam and got to see the new bridge from there. It was beautiful =) While in the Vegas area I got to jump off the Stratosphere and visit Red Rock Canyon. Hope everyone had a pleasant Thanksgiving.
