Please join me in extending greetings to the newest host of festivities in the Creative Cow's pro lighting community, Michael Palmer.
Of course Michael's been around the Cow for years, already hosting in forums for Convergent Design, HDV, and Sony Cinealta/XDCAM.
As you'll see in his Cow profile (click on his picture on the index page), he's been at this for a while. You've seen his work in What's Eating Gilbert Grape, Dead Man, Pulp Fiction and Sweet Valley High. No kidding - check out his IMDb profile. He's also now the DP for the Animal Planet series "Faithful Friends."
