SXSW: IM Video Journalism

Excellent presentation A+. Great presenter. David shared tips and was humorous. This is what SXSW is about. Great job David!

10:59: audience questions.
10:57: "It's not about the gear." But David mentioned various cameras.
10:46: "we're at a point now for video journalism similar to the change to the art world when Monet, Van Gogh and Manet blew apart perspective and the traditional thinking of how art was made and thought of."
10:29: "Small cuts and shoot with the edits in mind."
10:27: "The net has yet to be colonized yet a to how news is gathered."
10:20: David just showed how he produces 3 shots with same interview plus an establishing shot. I shot it on the Flip.
10:00a: Feel great after the 45-minute yoga session. By getting here that early I got a great free parking spot. :)

Room 12A
Time: 10:00 am

Your generosity and others made it a great experience. I mean it was 10 O'clock in the morning, you'd have to drag me outa bed on a saturday, specially if it was some Brit guy I'd never heard of.

I'm here till Monday. Be good to touch base and say hello properly
