While I’m writing the meeting report, check out my video.
To start the meeting I asked if anyone had any old business. Then we talked about how Michael Oh of Tech Superpowers is offering his Internet Cafe on Newbury Street space for us to use. We want to think about the best way to use this. The Forum hasn’t been used much and is now receiving a lot of spam comments, so we’ll have to think of a better way to discuss things online. I announced the start of Video Blogging Week 2006 and Podcast Academy.
Next up we went around the room and introduced ourselves, talked about what we were working on, videos we’d seen, asked questions, and presented short Show and Tells. Fun Stuff.
I started off by showing a preview of a video I shot for Rocketboom. It was my first scripted piece. It got a few laughs but was probably too long for showing on the big screen. Might need some more editing.
Holland is making some changes to his site and next month will talk about his thoughts behind the redesign.
David Tames showed us a clip of the intro to a movie he is making about John K Marchall. He ads music to the start of the video so that people will be able to adjust their audio levels right away. Next he brought out his new Sony HD HVR-A1U and talked abotu it’s features. It’s a very powerful small camera.

A new visitor to the group, Ken, asked about filming bands and rights associated with that. We had an interesting discussion on this topic and David Tames shared his experience with us. we could have a whole meeting on this topic.

Josh Kilgore was also new to the group and is excited to move from being a consumer of media, to a producer.
