Walking visionOntv talk at HRW Film Festival 2012


I spent chunks of Saturday with Glenn McMahon as part of visionOntv’s coverage of the Human Rights Watch Festival 2012 in London.

It was a good chance to practise one end of the VOTV01.5 template (it hasn't got any cartoons to illustrate it yet, but if you want a peak at how to do it, click on this). I did the interviews, Glenn did the filming.

He used an iPhone 4 plugged into an iRig mic for the sound, compressing the resulting HD files down by putting it into iMovie editing software, exporting the result to the pic directory on the phone using medium resolution.

Glenn then transferred the compressed file to a laptop PC, passed it through avidemux compression software to take it down to around 50MB. From there, I used the oneload video distribution site to send it out to multiple vide hosting sites (YouTube, blip, vimeo and the rest).

I found it inspiring to talk to different film-makers and activists who are out there doing good work. Events such as this are a great chance to hook up with them, find out what they're doing and how, then trying to do it yourself.

The following are three of the videos that came out of it, the trickiest probably being the last, my first live interview with an interpreter.

They feature Mimi Chakarova, Mark Covell and Carlo Bachschmidt.


Smartphone video uploads

This will be brief because what it says is all pretty simple.

The video below was shot by Tanya O'Carroll in late February as part of a training session in the visionOntv smartphone templates. It features Hamish Campbell interviewing Matt of the London Hackspace talking about his "top secret" coding project. The content wasn't really the point.

Having shot the video using the VOTV01.5 template - which is the next step up from this one - the file was bluetoothed across to my laptop for upload to oneload.com. The beauty of that approach is that you can file to several sites at once, youtube, blip.tv and so on, which can be a good thing for audience reach and also when the content might be something that other people may try to take down.

Once logged in with the visionontv username and password (ask the usual suspects for that one) it is pretty straightforward to upload the video, feed in the relevant tags to make the video searchable and to add a description of the contents.

Once done, I switiched to the visionontv google account where I checked the video, switched it to a Creative Commons licence and made it public.

The result is what you see below. If I can do it, anyone can.
