Sunrise Over Goteborg

This is part of the Lumiere videoblogging challenge. Part of the spirit of the challenge is to avoid setting up a shot or series of video images according to a pre-defined plan, and letting the world “speak to you” by capturing moments as they happen.

The rules:

  • 60 seconds max
  • Fixed camera
  • No audio
  • No zoom
  • No edit
  • No effects

For more information see: http://videoblogging.info/lumiere/ Luckily I had my tripod with me when I saw the sunrise in Sweden on July 10, 2007. Sunrise that day was at 4:27 a.m. It is a strange feeling to see the sun rise so early and set so late (after 10 p.m.)

YouTube Your Way

(Originally posted July 9, 2007)

I talked with a number of people at the big 777 meet up in NYC. It was referred to as “777” because it took place on July 7, 2007. It was an amazing event and I enjoyed talking to people about things they liked about YouTube and suggestions they had to improve the dialogue between participants and YouTube. Many of the issues are not easy to find solutions to, but I enjoy hearing people’s opinions on these issues. Do you find yourself agreeing or disagreeing with the opinions expressed in the video? Special thanks to: NickyNik, Tejon, Craig and Blade376, Christine Gambito, Julie, Gary, Mike, and Myloflex

Highway 5

(Originally posted June 27, 2007)

In light of our discussion on place at Pixelodeon recently, I thought I would put up a video that explores similar themes. We talked at the screening about how we often don’t think of things like airports or bus stations as places but rather as things that take us from one place to another. Yet our bodies and behavior are regulated in certain ways in these places. Similarly, Highway 5 is often thought of as a means to an end. A way to travel between northern and southern California. But what I hoped to show in this video is that it is in and of itself a place that evokes emotions, memories, nostalgia, and regulation of our bodies in ways that, in a nutshell, make it a place. Do you think of Highway 5 as a place? Why or why not? Can you think of something else that people consider a means to an end, but you have experienced as a place?

YouTubers at Pixelodeon

(Originally posted: June 13, 2007)

Over the course of the last year, I’ve observed overlap between YouTube and the video blogging community, yet the communities somehow remain somewhat insular, with one prominent video blogger only recently posting to YouTube for the first time. In addition, I’ve spoken with many children and youth on YouTube who are not aware of many of the most visible members of the video blogging community. Nor are they are aware of many of the resources that this community provides to video bloggers. I found it especially interesting that several YouTubers came to Pixelodeon. In this video, they discuss some of their reasons, which included business interests, personal fun, and curiosity. I was especially interested in the comments about what it was like to sit with other YouTubers and watch videos. Scholars who study reception practices are especially interested in how interpretations and experiences change according to the conditions under which the videos may be viewed. I enjoyed hearing the YouTubers’ comments which I found very interesting. Some of their views and sentiments about video blogging are consistent with the values expressed by many video bloggers outside of YouTube as well.
