More “Likes,” Closer Relationships

Published on
I just created this graphic for two upcoming Alumni events; the idea is to place it at the check-in table with the contact sheets and name tags. I noticed, when I started to promote one of the events on Facebook, that only two people in the target audience (out of 37) were fans of the…

Team Teaching at Trinity School

Published on
I created these two videos for teachers who presented at Riverdale Country School in New York in January. For the amount of content I had to work with, I didn't have as much time for production as I would have liked, so I'm not particularly over the moon about these videos. My main reason for…

Relaying an Experience

Published on
The photos below are a great example of how it can sometimes be difficult to interpret a situation based solely on photos. After finding them in a classroom photo gallery and contacting the teacher for details, I displayed it on the front desk monitor to showcase student learning.

Tweaking

Published on
The first issue of Trinity This Week (Trinity’s weekly e-newsletter) goes out tomorrow, the first day of school. I spent a little time today tweaking the template. I finally got rid of that HORRIBLE orange color of the hyperlinks (I’ve always hated that color; while I was at it, I changed it for the whole…

Compressor

Published on
I ran into a pretty big issue yesterday afternoon that I've never encountered. I went to compress/export a project for DVD in Compressor, something that I could probably do with my eyes closed. It's a matter of a couple of clicks...maybe three. But I got this message: "Unable to submit to queue. Please restart your…

I was pretty excited to receive this today! I'm officially an Apple Certified Associate in iWork! www.apple.com/certification/verify From Apple's website, here are the benefits.

Human Production Studio

Published on
My official title at Trinity is "Webmaster & Production Studio", but I have gradually taken it upon myself to change it to "Webmaster & Video Producer" when I tell people, because I'm not really a place. ☺ So I found it pretty funny when a co-worker was in my office a couple of weeks ago,…

I Am Imagination

Published on
I produced Trinity's 2012 Spring Annual Fund Appreciation Video last week. This production is 2:58 in duration, while the song itself is about 3:54 in duration. My goal was to balance brevity with maintaining the effect of these bi-annual videos, so I edited it to include the "best" parts of the song (climactic areas, compelling…

Waiting & Learning

Published on
  I feel like all I’ve seen within the last week are SLOW-MOVING blue bars like these. I am learning A LOT about handling HD footage! The biggest revelation is that everything takes longer! Rendering. Compressing. Uploading. The ONLY thing I’ve found so far that doesn’t take any longer is the actual importing process, which…
