Disaster Strikes the Spearfishing DVD

You might have heard the old saying that it is not a question of "if but when!"
Well when have had a 'when', when the first 7 seg of the film were corrupted, and the wind was taken out our sails.

This means that we are back to ground zero with the first segments of the Spearfishing DVD!! And we have to weed out all the inherent corrupted files reinsert them, before applying the finishing effects to the footage.

So this means that our target of November is now out the window, and we will miss Christmas. At this stage the consensus is to launch in the new year.
The silver lining to this whole fiasco is that we are not so rush to finish now, and there is a whole bunch of things we can now do that we had to shelve before.
.... so in the long run it might just be a blessing.

Spearfishing DVD Countdown

Hey guys,

Though I would give you an update on were we are with the spearfishing DVD Video.

Reality hit home when we realised that there are only 28days left before we need to have the DVD completed. I spent the whole of Saturday on the final edits of seg 1-6. We are a little behind on this so the pressure is on!! We have also decided to totally redo the final segments, just felt that it needed to go from 100% to 110%. (its kind of been or moto ..everything gets 110% effort)

So stick with us!! 28 days left!!

Nail biting stuff

In Search of Good Times

We have added the tag line "In search of" to the title of the Spearfishing DVD Good Times. This comes as there is real feeling that the whole emphasis of the dvd is actually about seeking and searching out that adventure or big moment.

I think any Spearo will identify with the emotions and anticipation of an epic trip, or even the regular weekend spearfishing trip. And I am sure the guys will also identify with loosing that big one or missing an opportunity of a lifetime. I missed a sailly on the trip, it was like the sea opened up and swallowed me! I had not shot a sailly before and the oppertunity came, I blew it and it just floored me. I was seriously depressed ... so you can imagine the flip side later when I did eventually get one ....... well the footage says it all!

Anyway the DVD will still be called Good Times it was. But we are going to throw in there "In Search of G......"

Cant wait to share the finished story with you.

Coatesman ...... still searching!

Well the clock is ticking!! We have only a few months left before 'D' day, and the guys are in full swing.
I finished the first draft of the ZONING IN - CUTA TUTORIAL which will be one of the Bonus features on the DVD.

I think it will be a great hit with our viewers, I personally have never seen such a action packed segment before. The tutorial covers the basic strategies I use to shoot Cuta and other game fish.

The segment uses a collection of some of the most amazing cuta footage seen to date. My favorite clip is of this cuta with its nose on my flasher, it swims off turns around and comes right back again. Every time I watch it I get all excited and want to get back out there, and get myself a fish!

This Cuta just would not leave my flasher alone ..
you have to see the clip!!

Any way back to the grind stone ... going to get cracking with the next segment in the DVD.

Cant wait to see how it turns out.
