IL2009: Connecting Through "Lights, Cameras & Action"

Speaker: Sean Robinson

Stories are essentially a contract between the author and the listener, and filmmaking is about storytelling. Before you start filming, have a story in mind, whether it’s a PSA or something more involved. Stories have beginnings, middles, and endings. You have three choices: comedy, tragedy, or drama — pick one or combine them.

Vade Mecum (take a book with you) was shot on a Canon PowerShot A570. 6,000 photos were shot and edited together with a soundtrack. You can do that with the stories you want to share.

Speakers: Michael Porter & David Lee King

Over 600 images were submitted from about 400 people. There are already over 1700 fans of the Facebook page.

The video looks really cool. I need to watch it again to read the words ’cause I was so focused on seeing all the photos. Go check out the website at Libraryman.com and watch it yourself. The point is, they think there are 101 resources and things that librarians should know. Add to it!

acrl northwest 2006 – photos

I didn’t take any pictures at ACRL Northwest because my camera is currently being fixed by Canon. However, there is a Flickr tag for the photos other people took. Right now Jessamyn is the only one who has uploaded and tagged photos from the conference, but hopefully the other photographers I saw there will add theirs soon.
