Last week, several Portland satis&fy members took a week of their personal time to volunteer for the Boy Scouts of America. Together with a crew of 120 fellow Scout leaders from all across the country, they produced 4 original shows over the course of 5 days, for the National Order of the Arrow Conference. Held at the Kimon Skjodt Assembly Hall in Bloomington, Indiana.
Paul, one of our technical designers, worked on this show for the 8th time since 2002. This year he was director of the Day in Review crew that was tasked with shooting video of all activities throughout the week long conference and editing a video to be shown by the start of show each evening. Paul's crew of 8 included a scheduling wizard, a video cataloger, a still photographer, a video editor, and four videographers. Over the course of five days they created 500 gigabytes of video files which were sorted and edited into a total of 21 minutes of final content.
Nick, another of our amazing video engineers, worked his second National Boy Scout Conference. Nick was tasked to engineer the Video Village, running the Barco E2 and ATEM 2/ME. He wrangled 18 video sources, output to 12 distinct destinations including several LED video walls. Our summer video department intern, was on Nick's crew and got quality hands on time with the ATEM, video cameras, Playback pro, decimators, and fiber distro. He also got the opportunity to technical direct the live camera switcher.
Thank you to all involved and for donating so much of your time and talents.
