<rant> I hate to rain on anyone's parade but as a member of the film 
production industry, I need to speak up.  Hat's off to the drone 
operator who refused to fly over people!  During the past year at least 
two crew members have died due to irresponsible behavior on the part of 
producers and other members of the production management part of the 
team.  The good news (if any part of this can be called good) is that 
three people involved with the unsafe (money saving) decisions that cost 
27 year old Assistant Cameraman, Sarah Jones her life while working on a 
film called "Midnight Rider" last March are facing felony charges.

I do not know Mr. Altizer.  He may be the greatest production manager on 
earth.  But if the production has simply replaced a safety conscious 
drone operator with one who maybe can't afford to turn down work, please 
find something else to do next Saturday. </rant>  --J.B.

This time there will be some people activity.  There was suppose to be activity last Sunday but the people with the drone did not want to use it above people in the event of an accident.  He will use any 60s car.  The shoot is about 9 miles from Culpeper, VA on Rt 15.  Give him a call 540 308-7075 No pay for you, but we received $50 for gas last week.
