Wikimania is the Wikimedia Foundation's annual conference. Each year it takes place in a different host city and attracts thousands of attendees from around the world, many of them contributors to massive open source projects like Wikipedia, to discuss and shape the way the open web evolves. This year I provided the live stream services for the event.
In the world of event videography simply producing high quality videos isn't good enough. Delivering high quality content as quickly as possible should be the goal.
Events are time sensitive. When you're at an event there's often a lot of chatter by the attendees, and those unfortunate enough not able to attend, about what's happening on various social channels. There's a buzz for all conferences that starts the day before festivities kick off and that lingers for about a week afterward. If you don't maximise the potential outreach of your content during this small time period, then it quickly becomes dated.
I love a challenge and there's no greater feeling than solving a technical niggle that's been irritating you for a while. Over the past few years I've provided video event filming services for some of the best meetups in the London tech scene. Budgets aren't always high, but the content is usually fantastic and they're regular as clockwork. As a result I'm always looking for the best way to deliver high quality coverage and content for my clients on an affordable level. I'm constantly pushing myself to do better and to come up with new ways of streamlining my workflow.
I spend a lot of my time editing recorded conference presentation videos, whether they're from smaller scale meetups or higher level conferences they've all left me with a small niggle... presentation slides.
