Here are sites I worked on

My passion

I'm passionate about video, radio and the web. As technology is evolving, so do I. As the web evolves, so is the relationship between all media is fading. One concept that I'm working with these days is Nonlinear narative story telling. On this subject, please refer to the Advanced Content Pulbishing page and the search for the Online Publishing House group. I've worked in the film industry years ago. This is why my heart belongs to this field. I specialize in the following areas:

  • Pre-production including script writing, planning shoots and proof-reading;
  • Production of video and photography; and
  • Post-production including editing, distribution

for both for the brick and mortar and virtual world.

    • Menu builing processes. When creating a video clip, one has to have a menu to begin with. Strangely engough, it is at the end that one constructs the menu system for a video clip. With the making of a menu system for your video clip, think abot how it will be structure at the begining and keep in mind that online video clip production is Nonlinear.

Altough, I'm recognized as an eternal newbie in this community, I'm becoming very much acquainted with Tiki and using it daily.

When it comes down to video editing I'm proficient with FCP and Premiere by Adobe.
When it comes down to script writing, I'm in my element. Therefore, documentation is always of interest to me although I'm mostly doing video prods.

The most active project I'm working on here at Tiki is the Video clip project where Open Source tools are being used and developed to communicate and promote Tiki as a good and solid infrastructure solution.

Tiki as a CDN

Tiki is used to document the video clips I've started to produce. The objective is to build a portal that would be used as a Content Delivery Network. As we all know, robust, yet agile CDN's are not cheap. Specially thosw CDN who manage complexity. Tiki as it all. We just need to make it do what we want.

Tiki as a solution

As all video editing affectionados will confirm, doing a good *video montage*, requires time and money ressources. Therefore, the crowd sourcing concept of doing online video editing is not only a dream come true with the use of the Kaltura plateform, it is a real possibility. It's been done before, you can view a sample on wikipedia. Yet, as mentionned, it requires ressources. Would you be interested to make this video clip projet fly higher and faster? If so, join our community and enjoy the ride!

Example of a social media experience

Who said kids are not ready for open communications?

Imagine the power of experiencing such an event

This young girl (the one wearing a hero cap using a "vacation type of camera") bellow is filming with a small digital camera (not to mistake with a professional digital camera) conducts her interview with a movie actor who just learned he won an award.

Tiki is a wiki. Is tiki wiki fast?

Can Tiki CMS Groupware be so easy to use that this girl can conduct her interview and put it out there on the web within an hour?

Tiki as non linear

As technology evolves, so is Tiki. Please keep an eye on Advanced Content Pulishing since it is becoming clearer and clearer that once a tiki developer masters the basics about tiki and about video production, tiki can be very handy to create a multi-layer UI whereby many people working on the same project converge toward a unique organic content development. For example, let's say your working on a video clip presentation that is intended to many people coming from many background. The stake holders don't agree. Here is where possible conflict can occur. Roles in the project are:

  • Scriptwriter (specially in situations where the specs are organic) (See this 10 page PDF description of roles in a feature film production)
  • Director
  • DoP
  • Producer
  • Editor
  • Distributor
  • and you

Because Tiki allows non linear thinking, even if your crew does not agree, you can go ahead, continue to construct your video clip, whichever role you play in the production.

However, if other members of the production remain in disagreement, bring the discussion back to the end product, what does the audience will get out of the experience. If people still don't agree, ask them:

  • How will it look in the menu system once it's time to burn DVDs?
  • If a viewer wants to see only "my part" will he be able?

Just like in a book creation, when creating your video clip, think non linear. After all, as technology evolves, filmakers will want to have control of the final product without over powering the others by using status quo and discouraging others to continue to contribute.

Therefore, if you have actors in your film (per exemple), make sure they understand that you use organic ressources to save money and that if they don't agree on what to do next, i.e. what will the menu system on the end product look and read like, the project will not grow and be completed as scheduled (use Project Management and tiki trackers to make your production schedule, your assistant director will love you!). Be prepared to go back to the narrative board to patch stuff!
