Twelve years strong: DC Web Women celebrate 12th year with Web 2.0 panel, vid gurus Scoble, Kanter, Carvin, Shapiro, & Goldstein
It has arrived (1.5 minute vid).
It’s been a thrill organizing this event with a great committee team.
DC Web Women celebrate their 12th year as a group, encouraging and supporting women professionals and enthusiasts in new media.
I just can’t wait!
And yes the director used words like ‘rehearse it twice, then go!’ and ‘quiet for take 2, scene 43!’.
A few of us were asked to drink champagne in a New Years Eve scene and silently mouth conversation (…director suggested whispering the word ‘watermelon’ as it makes the mouth look like it’s rhythmically speaking).
I salivated over their portable studio — a huge tripod set-up with a few boom mics, a sound unit crammed in the apartment’s kitchen (a temporary set for this particular scene), and round, white lighting sheaths on fish pole like fixtures.
It was a thrill observing the set, the actors made or missed their lines, & the producer in the background trying to feed us extras.
–Just met with DC Web Women in New Media‘s technical chair & former president Mary Fumento.
She has some creative ideas on connecting with the community with some new media-based events next year. And in February, (hopefully!) a collaborative event will occur that to some degree will involve Living with Geeks. Sorry to be obscure but official details are pending.
Ah but the excitement is in full swing!
Tonight(!) at DC Web Women
DC’s contingent of estrogen-based professionals & enthusiasts in all things new media convene for the holidays tonight. Can’t wait.
Footage for the project
The fine group DC Web Women hosted a panel discussion on website accessibility last night & they asked I record the event.
Mics were not available at the facility (with only a lapel mic on-hand personally). But DCWW was gung-ho anyway despite the risk that audio might sound like whispers in the end. So with tripod set-up & back-up dv cassettes ready, I recorded my first non-interview event!
–haven’t reviewed the footage yet (or gulp… the audio) but shall before leaving town next week.
