I actually made something today. Just a quick video—less than a minute, actually—with students who were doing a snow photoshoot. I think it captured the fun/anarchy of it, despite the many and varied technical issues.
Re my previous post about hipster appeal, this is what I was talking about. We have a small, relatively new garden on campus, and the student in charge of it this summer is really into sustainability and organic gardening. I spent a few hours with her and came up with this.
I’ve just been busy. And from that busy-ness comes March’s thing.
Yesterday, I was part of the team that put on BarcampICR. If you don’t know what a Barcamp is, it’s a user-generated conference. People show up, pitch ideas, attendees vote, and the most popular talks are scheduled throughout the day. I was asked to help out in January and it was a great experience.
I shot about 25 minutes of video throughout the day yesterday, so this month’s thing will be a 90-second to 2-minute video about BarcampICR. It’s going to take a little while, since I’m not getting any less busy, but I’m excited for it.
I don’t think I’ve said anything here, but Emily has gotten a job doing family therapy. So today is her last day at the book store, and in honor of that occasion I’m posting this video, which she doesn’t think is as funny as I do, because it hits too close to home.
OK, I know no one ever watches videos on the dash, but if you watch one video today, make it a good one. Or this one. Up to you, really.
It’s an aerial tour of Cornell College’s campus. Footage was shot in May, and I’ve been working on it on and off since then, getting the voice over, structuring it well, editing, etc. And some of you have even seen a draft of this (and to those who helped, I am forever grateful and owe you a beer or 12).
