Flash on the beach ‘08 report

Wow that was a week. A week full of beer, beach and seminars. I will give you a couple of highlights for me.

Stefan Richter showed some nice examples on what to do with flash media server… nothing really new to me on what was possible with it but I loved the examples that he did. It was inspiring.

Andries Odendaal was also a highlight for me…damn dude, how can you fuck up a presentation like that, you are probably a genius but I couldn’t stand watching you struggling there on stage. And if you had the same problems with your computer last year you should have replaced it by now I think.

Luckily for me came Chris Orwig after that talking about photography. Chris was talking about the impact of photos and the story that they can tell. Great presentation, I would love to follow a course at your school because I learned a lot during your seminar which was only an hour. Do not focus on the technical aspect and materials but on just making the shot because it could never happen again. The story about the student who tried to make a portrait of his dad but didn’t because the circumstances weren’t right and then the father died before the student had shot the portrait had a real impact on me and is so true!

Adobe Flash Video Event 27 March

Yesterday I went down to Amsterdam to join an Adobe event on flash video on behave of my employer TFE. Ofcourse it was all a marketing trick to promote adobe’s products but I must say it was quite oke! It started to impress me with the location for this event which was in a television studio which is used weekdays for talkshows based about recent events. I never have been to a tv studio before so it was pretty nice to see all that camera’s and lighting. And a part of the event was a presentation by Dutchview ( a tv show producer ) on how all the stuff works. All is digital. No more bad old tapes. They also showed us that it was possible to create a recap within a couple of minutes after a for example a live football broadcast. All due to this digital processing.
