    Folks,

    Randy and his team are preparing to launch the first frequent traveler video station—milepoint.tv during this years Star Mega DO!

    If you are on SMD3, YOU can be a part of the launch! We have 5 UltraHD Flip cameras that will be distributed among 5 SMD participants, the person that puts the best content on the camera, will win a FREE seat on SMD 4 next year!! The runner ups will get a $20 USD Starbucks card.

    So, why should I FedEx you and UltraHD Flip camera?

    Please post in this thread. The 5 initial winners will be picked on Monday the 15th, we will FedEx the cameras out early next week so you can start filming!

    If you don't get picked to get one of the 5 cameras to film, don't worry! You can upload your own content on milepoint.tv after the launch and be eligible to win the GRAND prize.

    With or without a FLIP camera, I will do my best to replicate the success of my World Famous CO 1905 Pillow Fight video.

    Ooooh, awesome! Heck, I'm just excited of an official mention of a MegaDO 4!! I'm used to filming and taking photographs of drooling, slobbering, falling down, interesting people 24/7......though normally they are in the 1-2 year old category. :) Seriously though, I am not shy about filming. Mommies are used to keeping the record button "on"!! If you don't capture it on film, it's like it never existed!

    Can't wait to see what all is captured! Fun contest!

    Will there be other ways to qualify for a free ride on SMD4 which would not be a total conflict of interest with my job? :D

    Let's see - "From a Winner's Perspective - My Journey on StarMegaDo3" (and what it truly means to me :) )(cheeky, I know, but can't blame a girl for trying)

    A Flip Camera could tell that story so well!

    (Besides, I know Pat will let me use her power source too ;) )

    Cool idea! I’ll bring along my Kodak version of the Flip and see what comes up. Oooooohhhhh, SMD4.

    If I recall you're likely pretty darn good at this stuff so I'm watching your viewfinder. Good luck.

    because I think I'll try and make the captions and the music fit in a funny and classy way to the movie. My examples are all personal stuff for now though ..

    Some photos (with captions) from the earlier SMD's:
    http://msky.zenfolio.com/smd1
    http://msky.zenfolio.com/smd2
    and I should edit the movies I have too....

    Just because I worked with a range of pretty good directors way back doesn’t mean I picked up anything from them! :) But thanks for the good wishes.

    BTW, did you get around to the Russell Shorto book yet, “The Island at the Center of the World?

    Because I'm not afraid to shove a camera where the sun don't shine (i.e. into the wheel wells of an airplane)!

    BTW: I'm only on the domestic portion right now but I'd have no problem with you picking up the tab to fly the camera (and me as the camera's legal guardian) on the MUC portion of the trip as well.

    Why me? Because I know how to take fun, non-boring movies with professional details. Key technique with movies is to keep the camera still and let the object move. If you want to track a moving object/person - then move the camera so moving object is stationary.

    Plus I am outward and want to meet everyone. We need movies of everyone having a fun time and pictures of all the neat things we are going to see at interesting angles. For group events, my pictures usually get selected for upload.

    I took extensive video of the last CO DO IV in IAH of the mystery flight on the 752 over HOU along with the power takeoff. I can provide as examples - but only for non-distribution. I decided not to release my videos of the mystery flight nor the complete 1.5 hours of Larry Kellner/Jeff Smisk executive presentation. The prize was Chavon refilling my champagne glass "would you like a refill, Sir", along with Allie holding on during the power takeoff, Cigarman in the galley, and panoramic view from cockpit.

    Plus I will bring a tripod.

    What’s this I’m hearing about SMD4 including us being on a delivery flight of a 787 to what will then be UA, with no CO slash?

    My main motivation: because I'd rather be behind one of these cameras than being filmed by them. I don't do much video work now, but some years ago I worked briefly in television production, and I'm somewhat nostalgic for it. I'm more likely to give you quality raw footage (long, stable shots) suitable for your own editing than I am to do much editing on my own; I'll let you decide if that's what you want or not.

    Why me? Because the Flip cameras usually run out of power before space and I have a portable power supply! :D

    Tommy, shouldn't you put together a panel of industry experts to be the judges?
