    Meatpacking District, NYC

    Anyone interested in doing an early morning shoot here? I am talking meeting at 4:30am <-- you read this correctly and then shooting the various meat packers 'process' the carcasses and stuff.

    I already have a couple of friends who want to do this, but want to know if there is more interest from others. I am planning to get the proper permits and stuff.

    Oh, yeah, it'll have to be on a 'school day' - Monday to Friday, that is. Look at it this way, you can go straight to work afterwards.

    That must be a typo.
    Everyone knows that there is no such thing as 4:30 in the _morning_. It's a myth.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    What are the lighting conditions like down there at that hour? I'm guessing they have some kind of artificial light to work. Is it easy to get good views, or are there trucks blocking all the activity?

    You're quite right Neal. 4:30am is just late evening to us Nightowls. Just about the time things start to go right in the darkroom and you've gotta work like crazy before the darn sun comes up and spoils your fun.

    P.S. If I may suggest when you pick which day to go to the meat-works, don't pick the day after pay day. Hung over men with very sharp knives is not a good combination. And I just know I'm gonna regret saying that.

    Jumping juhosifax (sp?). I didn't realize there so many other masi...err...enthusiasts. OK, well how does Friday, August 12 sound to everyone?

    I'll apply for a film permit for Gansevoort St, 11th Ave, 10th Ave, 9th Ave, 14th St, 13th, Little 12th St and say it will be a group.

    If you want to apply on your own to shoot outside these streets or later, you'll have to apply on your own. It's easy and it's free.

    I also have the phone numbers of some of the companies in the area. I'll try to get is IN the plants themselves. Otherwise it's all street shooting.

    As for lighting, it will obviously be mixed lighting - natural, neon, flourescent, tungsten, all sorts...and yes, there will be trucks everywhere, so we all have to pay special care to safety.
