Hey, where is lexinatrix? Did she survive the brainwashing?

Sep. 2nd, 2005

Took a couple of hours this morning to run some needed errands. First I hit Cinequipt to get some specialty lighting & grip stuff that I've needed, and dipped if they didn't have the exact stuff I was looking for. I also got a couple more grip arms and heads, because I know I'm gonna need 'em.

Next, a quick drive-by at Menards for some steel stock; I'm doing a modification to a lighting fixture. And again, dipped if they didn't have a real handy tool on clearance that was exactly what I need.

Tonight is hopefully time to wrangle up the modifications to my old Junior. The nice thing is that the modifications are reversible, so if I want to go back to a light fixture that sucks 20 amps out of a socket, I can. As you might guess, it doesn't get used a hell of a lot. First of all, it's chunky big. It's around 12" in diameter, and probably 15 inches long. Second, it's heavy: it's made of steel. Third, it's a junior, which means it uses a junior pin instead of a baby pin to mount ( a junior pin is a little over an inch in diameter, a baby is 5/8") so I have to have a special stand for it that's also made of steel and heavy. And for the light it puts out, I can usually use a couple of smaller lights if I really need it.
I've actually only used it on location once when we were out in the woods filling the place up with fog and zombies and needed a backlight. We had a generator to power everything.

With the modifications, the power consumption drops in half, and the light output increases something like 3 times. It's worth it, because there are times I need a bloody lot of light to shoot. This light will suddenly become a lot more useful, and it will open up some areas of lighting setups that I hadn't been able to try before.

It may not work. It's a damn tight fit, and it requires some nifty machining and the application of some more modern engineering techniques (the fixture is a 1930's design) to make it all fit and be smooth.
But you know, I gotta try.
I suddenly have this really deep desire to be completely distracted by scantily clad women.

That is all.
Made it home long enough to change clothes before the bed sucked my head into the pillows.

I just woke up, hungry and needing to get the hell out of the house.

Nothing personal, I just need to disappear for a while.
