Useful Tool

I got a Leatherman Blast for a wedding gift. I didn't use it for the first few months because it was never on my belt. Finally I got fed up with having the thing and not using it, so I attached it to my pants.

I used it every day for two weeks after that.

Now I use it every few days or so, but still, for a guy who sits in front of computers most of the time, that's impressive.

As I was looking through some old pictures, I ran across this one of my Leatherman acting as a music clip for a windy live show. Not bad coming to the rescue of a local band.

What does this have to do with filmmaking? Well, for starters, you often don't have all the pro/specialized equipment that you may want. This forces us to be creative in what we use. If you need help figuring out a specific thing for a shoot you have coming up, please let us know on the Forums and we'll try to give you some ideas.

Speaking of the Forums, I've spent some time the past couple of days trying to troubleshoot some issues for some people there. If you have any input (or questions or your own), I encourage you to pop over there and start posting. I've found that it is difficult for me to offer fixes to problems that I've never experienced, let alone solved, so if that's something you are good at, please get involved.
