Earth Accounting is a company that is encouraging consumer activism through information. They have a new app under development, Earth Touch, which will allow people to scan the bar code of a product and find out where the company that makes the product stands on ecological issues, and about their environmental footprint.
I did this video from start to finish for them…
…and I was videographer on this video.
We will be working together on future projects, so stay tuned.
One of the things I am proudest of in my career is my time working on Pray For Japan, a documentary about the aftermath of the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami.
I was not involved in production or principal photography, but became a part of “Team P4J” during Post-production. My official title in the beginning was Assistant Editor. Basically what that means, for those not familiar with the nomenclature of film production, is that I did all the grunt work for the editorial team, so that they could concentrate on the editing process. It began with logging the video clips, doing transcoding where needed, and prepping still images for inclusion in the film. However, my job description began broadening to where I built the first version of the website, and handled social media for the film, something I still do on an ongoing basis.
When we began getting closer to the release of the film, we partnered with Ning and Glam Media on the current version of the site. I populated the site with content, and continue to manage it for Pray For Japan Film LLC.
I also continue to manage the Host A Screening Program for the film for all but the archipelago of Japan. We have a separate team handling screenings in Japan, which is good for me since unlike Director/Producer/DP Stu Levy I am not at all fluent in Japanese. 😉
The film is available for online purchase from iTunes and Amazon, and can be streamed from those outlets plus YouTube and Hulu. It can be purchased on DVD and Blu-Ray from RightStuf and Amazon, and select brick and mortar stores like Kinokuniya Books.
I have been involved with SCALE, the Southern California Linux Expo, since it was called LUGFest and held in the commissary of Nortel Networks’ Simi facility. It has now become the biggest community-run Linux convention in North America, and can only be compared to larger Linux community events in Europe.
Will post about my experiences at SCALE 11x here!
This is a community I’m going to try and build for geeks who are on a fitness journey. I managed to throw this together in a few hours over the weekend.
This is my personal health and fitness blog, lessfatchick.wordpress.com . It’s not fancy, but it’s pretty cool regardless.
I made this graphic for Facebook, but I actually really like how it turned out, so I’m posting it as a portfolio piece.
A couple of people who have been truly inspiring over the years. Rock and roll will either kill you quick, or it will be a fountain of youth. It seems like there is no middle ground. Happy birthday, David Bowie, pour out a little liquor for Elvis Presley.
Very happy to note that we are now live and the real adventure begins.
Props to two very important people: Skamfu who designed and programmed the site, and Stu Levy, the force of nature behind TOKYOPOP.
