Finally got the pics and video from my sister's camera. Here's the pics, still encoding the video. My first time non-Phantom and my first time with boards.

Please, for the love of God, tell me those Excals were placed in tubes?!?!?!?! :confused: :eek:

LOL.:lol:

Yes. We only had 10 tubes. So I would load the tubes and fuse them all together. Then, I'd pull the Excals out and repeat the process for the next board. So when it came time to light the board, I'd just take the poor man's rack over to that board and drop the shells right in.

BTW, Xikar as in knives or Xikar as in cigar cutters/lighters?

OK, here's the video. My sister was filming and it was her first time. She's zoomed in a bit and the mines confused her on whether to focus on the shell or the mine. But I think she got the hang of it. Please tolerate her comentary. I've shrunk all videos to 15mb or so.

Board 1:
This board had a problem. Cake #2, Hard to Beat mis-fired. Looks like it dumped all 10 shots in about 5 seconds. Resulted in some dead time.

Board 2:
My favorite board. I was way off on the timing for Crazy Exciting, so there's more overlap then I'd like.

Finale:
The timing on this one was poor. The resulting effect was good, but American Trucker popped way too early. This is also a great example on why we need a better shoot site next year.

Any feedback is welcome!

American Trucker became an instant family classic. Everyone loved it. To me, it's definitely a case a year.

Thanks for the compliments. This wasn't quite the whole show, just my part. My brother's were doing light and run, then I'd mix in a board on occasion. We're already collaborating on our show next year.
