Wildlands and Woodlands- video

Post by Joe » Thu Apr 26, 2012 7:24 am

I have just uploaded a video I recorded 2 years ago of David Foster presenting the Wildlands and Woodlands vision at the annual Native Tree Society Forest Summit at Mt. Holyoke Community College (http://www.nativetreesociety.org/). The video is 52 minutes, considerably longer than most online videos, but the presentation is so thorough and the subject so important that I didn't want to edit it. I have it on 2 sites: for those with very fast internet connections (the video is high def.),
try the Vimeo site: http://vimeo.com/user845702/videos.

Joe,

Thanks for the post. I would like to see more of the presentations posted online if possible.

Ed, I was planning on taping most of that event- but I got lazy. I really, really, really dig doing video and plan to do a lot more. That was an easy one- just set up tripod and let it rip, with no editing. Digital technology today is incredible- the cameras are far better and cheaper- and being able to upload to the world, at little or not cost is awesome.

Maybe at the next NTS Summit, I'll be more ambitious- thanks for adding the image.

Regarding the W&W vision- I like it except for one thing- it's objective is to accomplish this protection work over the next several decades. I'd prefer to speed it up.

Joe,

I set up the tripod and recorded all of the presentations at the Cook Forest event. For Bob's I am overlaying his Power Point slides ove3r the video switch between the two. So it is a narrated slide show with video. I am still working on the presentation. I am currently processing Dale doing his Trees of Northwestern PA presentation on my laptop. For the moment it is the video of the screen and him talking. I cropped it tighter on the video and the processing will take maybe 12 hours on my slow laptop. Either it the cropping and resampling of every frame in HD or it is just having a hard time making Dale look good!! I have the presentations by Sheri Shannon and Joan Maloof to do yet. I also have video from the field trips on the first day and the tree measuring practice to be edited. There is a lot of processing time needed on my computer in the next week or so.

OK, I guess I'll have to check out your sites. Best way to learn is by seeing what other people are doing.
