Padre North 2011 Film for Port Aransas , Texas and North Padre Island, Texas?

I did not do well last year with ,"The wave it is" a film project by Christopher Hyer , or aka padrenorth2009, it was five takes on film that had very bad footage from not taking care of the film and disc I had used. I was throughly dis organized when I shot on the Island of North Padre Island, Texas and Port Aransas , Texas from 2005 till 2009. I had used every format available to shoot from film motion  to still camera's to pawn shop bought camera's to make my pictures stand out, and they did, My you had many hits back in the day under padrenorth2009 and still does OK,. I post only my recordings as a musician and throw together video to make the so called music video, yes half -asses again, yet I am on the charts in music.
Back to the film , I thought I could do it all, and still do think anything is possible if you  try hard enough and work at it. I recently became a Catastrophe adjuster licence  in the state of Texas and found no work available because of the lack of hurricanes , which is good and bad for the occupation. So what are you Christopher Hyer, a photographer a filmography, a musician, a adjuster, well Yes I am all these things, with no specialty in any of them. lol
  I love people and I like to watch how they react or act to a certain motion of film and or pictures I take, My Photographs are all over the internet, and yet no penny was ever asked for , I just gave away my life as per one of my videos suggest. Go to you and find padrenorth2009 and you will see how many small time videos I had been doing and still do. I can make a new film happen, its a matter of the Camera's , so I will talk more about that, and if you have surfing experience in photography .I would appreciate a recommended camera to use, as I will have to rent one out for the quality I am seeking. I do take donations, may-bee I can find an affiliate that will donate to the cause. What another surf film, my idea is still the same , as it's a secret. A mystifier as to what I am going to write about. Updated 1.24.2011

Padre North 2011 , Photographing the Surfer

I was looking over some old photos of surfing for North Padre Island, Texas and Mustang Island, in Port Aransas , Texas and found out a few interesting things,
 I was shooting backs and not getting the fronts of my surfing crowd, I call them mine cause you see , I take my Photography very serious even though I have fun with it, I will not make anyone look dumb out there in
the Ocean with Sharks and other stinging fish out there entertain me with stupid acts.

 I take a long trip to get home and that is taking a 550 mile trip to the Ocean in Corpus Christi, Texas and filming and or photographing the surfing community. There is quite a bit of action considering that the breaks are 3-4 ft and these girls and guys can ride them like they were 7 ft. waves. Its still amazing, I shoot from the pier and in the evening time I have to face toward the sun and of course my exposure is overwhelmed by the light and makes for some good silloettes , that's for sure, yet usually I can compnsate with my shutter and still get a pretty good shot. I have not shot down on  the coast in about 6 months , no swells the last time I went, now that I am thinking and working on a project for a film about the Island, and the people that surf , I am having to re-train on new camera's or try to at least. The angle shots I can usually work out I just move from one place to the next on the pier, with a backpack of camera's . I think when I shot down there I mixed in well with the locals, never infringed on their privacy, they were doing what relaxed them as I was doing the same, yet no money became of my shots,because that was not why I shot the surfer in South Texas.
  I started this late on Sunday night and will follow up every other day, maybee some one can provide some help as to what's the best in water housing I can get, and where and what type of film camera can I rent that will give me a HDV output and with Mic cababilities for interviews. Until I make it back on here , Thank You for listening to my thoughts. Christopher Hyer
