The eminent Mr. Sanderson
« on: August 11, 2007, 07:37:31 am »

Hi,

I enjoy the tutorials, they are not just very informative but they are also very fun. It's very nice to listen to Jeff Schewe and Michael Reichmann. The one person I miss is the one behind the camera. I feel it would be nice if Mr. Sanderson could leave the camera on the Gitzo for a while and join the fun.

I do understand that the "fun" is actually hard work, but I think it's very entertaining anyway. Great work, Michael, Jeff and Chris!

Best regards
Erik

Yeah, well the problem with that of course is that while Chris can shoot, his image simply refuses to appear on screen. Must be something of the vampire in him, don't ya know?

Actually Chris is a really fun guy who always has his eye stuck to the camera (at least that's the way I envision him from the trips to Antarctica) or sitting and copying from tape to hard drive (in the bar on board the ship). I actually have a lot of shots OF Chris but the problem of getting Chris on tape is that he's always got hold of the darn video camera and tends to growl like an elephant seal if anybody messes with his gear.

It would be fun to see Michael interview Chris...when they travel, they behave like two old English women-constantly sniping back and forth. Chris still has a cultured English accent (even though he's been in Canada for 40 years) and always sounds brilliant...(I said "sounds", Chris).

It's always great fun to work with the two of them...and yes, it is a lot of work.

The other thing that Chris is really good at is making Michel and I sound like we know what the heck we're talking about by very careful editing...

Jeff,

Thanks for that delightful mini-portrait of Chris. I do hope I get to meet the three of you sometime (all together, so I can watch the chemistry working first hand.) I, too have learned a lot and been highly entertained by the threesome.

-Eric

P.S. I wouldn't mind a ride on your bike either. It's too many years since I had my own BMW.

Well, with all the crap I carry, I have a solo seat on it. I gave up letting other people ride behind me when my wife decided she wanted her own bike (F 650 BMW) because she couldn't see anything (and kept hitting me on the back with here helumet).

My BMW was the smallest they made back then (in the middle ages): a 250cc single cylinder. But it was still the most reliable machine (2- or 4-wheel) I've ever owned. And so much more fun than anything on 4 wheels.

If I ever got another one, it would have to be bigger to hold all the crap I now carry. What do you do with a tripod? Or do you rely on stabilized lenses?

You guys are BMW enthusiasts - you may be aware of a video production, 'Long Way Round' - that was done a couple years ago - around the world on two BMW's - Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman - really brutal travel, especially in Mongolia and Siberia.

Definitely the road trip to end all road trips - cracked frames, mud up to the waist...sure is fun to watch, though.

Yep...bought the DVD...but truth be told, those guys had it pretty cushy...I mean they had a a whole crew backing them up even if Ewan McGregor couldn't handle his GS in the mud...not that I would have said no if they asked me to do it! But I don't think popping wheelies on a loaded GS would be much fun.

Jeff, I wonder if you have read this story of adventure. Pretty interesting if you are both a BMW and a Rush fan.
