I hadn't realised till I started writing but we've now reached just over halfway in terms of total hours left for filming on this project.  We finished up day 3 at the Crowne Plaza hotel where the management very kindly continued the Darwin tradition of accommodating our requests to allow the crew to use premises to shoot various scenes.

Kerry's Automotive group also stepped right up and helped us out big time by offering the use of one of their beautiful E Class Mercedes Benz showroom cars driven by their sales manager Tim Johnston for Maddison's ride from the airport scene.

Such a classy ride and so smooth too, I didn't take any stabilisation gear for the camera and didn't really need it once I had it braced up against the seats' headrest.  In fact it was almost hard to get out of the car to get back to the rest of the day once we had all our travelling footage.

We had just a small crew of four for Day 3 and they pulled it all together nicely as usual.  I had Bronwyn Pain with me again for the day and she ran the set with her usual lifesaving efficiency but also took on the BTS Camera duties for the day too as well as equipment logistics and shared gaffer duties.  Jess Lai once again filling in the role of DOP with me as well as managing the lens rotations.  Sam Korn once again not having to be there but turning up to help us in any way he can which we all really appreciate, extra hands really do make for light work and he is getting a good appreciation for what goes into the making of a clip which will be useful as we have more planned in the near future.

After minor technical difficulties shooting at the airport last time (mostly physical due to the weight of equipment being slightly more than comfortable to work handheld),  I fast-tracked the order for the X-10 Glidecam vest as a definite 'need' item to get better stabilisation on our moving shots, it was originally timed to arrive for Day 3 of filming but I quite naively forgot about the customs part of the equation.  The guys at profeel shipped me the vest from New York to Australia in their usual record time of only 2 days, only to have it stopped in customs.  At this stage all I can find out about the shipment is that it is 'in transit' and could be anywhere from 2 to 10 days before Australian customs process it.  I'll try to find out a bit more this week if possible.

** Update on the X-10 vest situation.  I decided to do a little research at lunch today see if there was anything I could do to get hold of the vest for filming this weekend and stumbled upon a golden link for a customs broker in Australia,  I found Aus-Express Customs via a google search and now wish I'd searched last week.  After talking to their friendly broker and giving the particulars of my situation  they had a reply back to me in under one hour, confirming they had managed to release my consignment from customs for delivery and it was on its way, they took care of all the paperwork and GST calculation for me and they ensured my item was in the correct Tarriff classification ( the Tarriff Act is incredibly confusing to the average layperson ).  Highly recommended if you are in Australia and find yourself in the same predicament as me!
