20090126 – First Video Shoot under my belt

January is rocking along and I am very excited to have completed my first Video Shoot!
It was for my Dad to cover a couple of modification he has made for a wood working tool he uses.
He is active in his CarveWright community and this was to assist one of the postings he had made in the discussion forums.
The video, bloopers and lessions learned are all documented and available below.
I really enjoy this so far and look forward to more shoots, editing and posting.
Here is the video of the bloopers, enjoy!

20090120 – Awesome Day – President Obama Inauguration and my First Family Video from VHS on YouTube

Wow I am still on a feel good ride!
I was only able to watch 1 hour of the Inauguration, the swearing in and President Obama’s speach, but it was deeply inspiring!
I had to watch it over the air via my media center as CNN like the rest was swamped and not able to handle the number of viewers – something to keep in mind and an area to improve in the industry.
I have two major personal projects I am working on concerning family pictures and video. Here is a teaser video I just uploaded to YouTube that was taken almost 20 years ago. I chose this one as it is short and a number of key people in the video have passed. It shows how YouTube can be annotated. I am looking for a complete list of who is in the video, so I can revise it with the names and links to other videos and pictures as my project progresses.
Most of all, please enjoy seeing those whom we have not seen for a while, think of good times together and smile 🙂

If you don’t have a YouTube account, you can create one for free or use your Google account as your YouTube Account. Please email me if you have questions and I will help you through the process!
I am going to post a blog entry on my professional site tomorrow about how I am doing the VHS to DVD to YouTube conversion, the scope of the project and the effort needed to pull it off, so look for the post tomorrow evening.

20090116 – Prime Time with You Tube

I have my youtube account up and running as part of one of my Santa projects for me, family and Grigsby Consulting and I am excited.
I have been converting VHS home videos to digital media and then editing them to publish to Youtube.
This entry serves as a good test with more to come on a regular basis.

Okay, I have some pictures to load, but we have had a great holiday season and hope you have too.
Did I mention, that "Lives" new photo features are less robust than the old… sucks, can’t move pictures or albums as far as order…. Really looking for a new home now.
