“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain

INSIDER TIPS:

SHOOTING FILMS WITH A DRONE!

BY Sebastian Solberg

DRONE CAMERA

Drones are revolutionizing filmmaking, allowing filmmakers to achieve jaw-dropping, cinematic results that have previously only been available to hugely expensive Hollywood productions! Drone technology won’t turn you into a great filmmaker but it will enhance your skills as a story-teller, and, if used well, will make your work shine. If you’re wanting to get high-production value shots for your next film project and you’re looking at using a drone, here are top ten tips on how to get that money-shot safely & to watch a cool drone tutorial! Also available: something just as impressive – a camera-equipped quadcopter drone that can land on the water and shoot underwater footage, too!

MOONDANCE RECOMMENDS

KANGAROO BABY

From www.change.org: Did you know that Gap Inc. profits from animals’ inhumane suffering in the fur industry? Raccoon dogs, foxes, rabbits, mink, and even kangaroos are slaughtered and skinned for Gap Inc.’s Intermix stores despite this widespread cruelty to animals who are often beaten, electrocuted, or bled to death for their fur. A spokesperson for Gap Inc. said: “We are committed to the ethical sourcing of our products, which includes the humane treatment of animals,” but they have stopped short of putting this policy in place across all stores. Many Gap, Inc. fur products are made in China, a country with virtually nonexistent animal cruelty laws. If they claim to care about humane treatment of animals, why are they allowing their Intermix stores all over the world to continue selling fur coats, hats, gloves, and other accessories from animals killed? Please take a stand right now against the heartless slaughter of animals! Please sign this petition asking Gap Inc. to go completely fur-free!
