9:00 Setup & process models.
10:00 - 1:00 Shooting in two groups
Joey & I are both bringing a set of lights and heading up the following groups:
1:00 - 2:00 Lunch - subs provided.
2:00 - 6:00 Groups merge for super huge shoot with all the lights & all the models!
6:00 -until we can't take any more - Dayz Off Pub - 640 Kingsway Ave. SE
We will also have a photographer group discussion about how we want to shoot on the second day.
9:00 - 1:00 Shoot
1:00 - 2:00 Lunch - pizza provided.
5:30 -6:00 Wrap up gear and leave the school as we found it, so the custodian can go home right away, too. (He is expensive & a must have, for the school to be used).
All meals & food must be outside as they wanted a $1000.00 deposit for eating inside and we didn't want to drive up the ticket price.
We need props and are looking for volunteers to bring these things:
Balls & sports equipment
guitar or other musical instruments
jacks & ball
books that are plain when you remove the dust jacket
Basically any stuff that you would see in a school, school supplies.

If you actually live in Medicine Hat, don't pay by paypal. We'll work something out to pay in person in order to save the fees.

Hey, have fun everyone! Thanks to all who helped me figure out routes via train to Calgary, perhaps I'll get there in the future! July doesn't work for me which is fine- I used the money I could've come to Calgary on for a new lens! Should be here Monday- Canon 70-200 2.8 IS. Did I actually BUY that???

Wow have a good time. I can't make July. Took all of August off instead. I am totally jealous but what can ya do, right? Hopefully someone will still think about doing another one later. Wish I could help but only get to be in Alberta 1 month a year and don't have enough contacts to plan that myself. Let me know if any one does another Alberta 'lypse. Can't wait to see the pics. I'll miss ya!!!

So has anyone thought about the skateboard park as a potential location. I know a number of members of the medicine hat skateboard association and they appear to be game.

Heydenkaye just signed on, so that leaves only 4 more spaces. Get them while their hot!
We're going to have some killer locations that will sell well. More info and model photos to come.
Opps, I had heydenkaye twice. That means 5 spaces still available.

The school has been confirmed. We are using Medicine Hat High School & we will have the library, south gym, theater/drama room, & autobody/welding shop and a classroom. We are still waiting for permission to use the cosmotology room. There are also common areas and the school grounds. For those who aren't familiar, it is Medicine Hat's largest high school and is not far off the transcanada.
The facility lends itself to lots of other themes besides the obvious school theme. Now is the time to start thinking of ideas & props you might need. If you have the room, think about bringing some props for general use, too. When everyone brings props, sometimes you can put together some unique scenes, and the theatre is just the place to do it. Rumour has it, there is furniture backstage and other large props! (okay, I have someone working on the inside....er kid going to school there)! We will try to get some pictures soon to help get the creative juices flowing!
In the meantime....meet two of our confirmed models:

When I first saw the name, I was thinking it would be in (Cape) Hatteras, North Carolina - which would an incredible shoot for surfing, windboarding, kayaking, nature, camping, etc.
Sounds like a fun lypse ... but we are already driving 800 miles to GTAlypse in Toronto. I bet you guys have cooler swank, though.
