14:08:53 jackiegerstein -> Tranparency is the only way to be

14:09:59 kcaise -> hi christine
14:10:04 Peggy George -> we could all become movie producers if we followed Mathew's advice!!
14:10:07 courosa -> @matt, i've told you this before, but this vid is really fantastic.
14:10:09 Mathew Needleman -> Camera is a sony trv900
14:10:16 JoseRodriguez -> I think it's a mini dv
14:10:16 Mathew Needleman -> several years old
14:10:28 JoseRodriguez -> oh yeah.. I keep one in my classroom
14:10:29 kcaise -> very innovative way to storyboard
14:10:30 Mathew Needleman -> Thanks again Alec
14:11:00 Peggy George -> @jackiegerstein-yes these are from past presentations to whet everyone's appetite for things to come! no teasers available yet for this year
14:11:19 almedrano -> I have an old sony that doesn't work, will have to try this with something new, flip cameras are popular will that work here?
14:11:21 Peggy George -> that planning step is really critical!!
14:11:30 kcaise -> mathew used my legs for that shot! lol
14:11:32 JL -> Link to Mathew's presentation page: http://k12onlineconference.org/?p=329

14:12:17 susanvg -> thanks for dropping by Vance
14:12:20 kcaise -> bye vance
14:12:59 Peggy George -> using video production to teach media literacy!! awesome point!
14:13:11 Paula Naugle -> I have watched this video before. Love his explanations.
14:13:14 kcaise -> extremely important, key ppoint
14:13:42 susanvg -> Yes - have to help students understand camera angles and transitions - not arbitrary
14:13:45 Mathew Needleman -> The media literacy element of moviemaking is what I think justifies its use in classroom vs. some other technology components
14:13:57 almedrano -> what about ultranorm?
14:13:59 JoseRodriguez -> Looking for some video.. production this year as part of #thirdgradediscoveries
14:14:00 Mathew Needleman -> more bang for your buck
14:14:02 Peggy George -> I agree!! justifies spending the time!
14:14:13 Mathew Needleman -> what's ultranorm? not familiar
14:14:21 Peggy George -> aren't those great shots??!!
14:14:22 kcaise -> hi sue
14:14:27 kcaise -> hi csgodfrey
14:14:27 almedrano -> let me find the link...
14:14:36 JoseRodriguez -> the best shots in the world..
14:15:01 csgodfrey -> Hi Y'all
14:15:07 Peggy George -> in Alec's presentation in the next segment we'll get to see these tips modeled!! :-)
14:15:08 susanvg -> Audience also needs media literacy :)
14:15:56 Paula Naugle -> Hi Maary Beth.
14:16:03 Peggy George -> hi everyone just joining us! so glad you're here!
14:16:36 Peggy George -> selecting shots with clear purpose!!
14:16:40 JoseRodriguez -> hadn't noticed.. but rule of thirds is a great tip
14:16:42 Lorna -> I love all this good advice for shots
14:17:12 kcaise -> don't most digital cameras have that grid they can put on the screen when taking pictures
14:17:13 Peggy George -> I never thought of that before I saw Mathew's video!
14:17:23 Peggy George -> always thought things should be centered!
14:17:29 Mathew Needleman -> @kcaise, yes many do have grid
14:17:41 Mathew Needleman -> @Peggy, in portraits you might center subject
14:17:47 JoseRodriguez -> so cool..
14:18:07 Peggy George -> thanks Mathew for that distinction--photos vs videos
14:18:19 JL -> I have mic envy again
14:18:21 Andy McKiel -> Matthew - I first watched your video on the bus in Vancouver last year - I got some really funny looks when I laughed out loud when this segment began :-)
14:18:32 Peggy George -> isn't it fun when we love our technology equipment??!!
14:18:34 susanvg -> having ability to add mic was one criterion when I bought a video camera
14:18:41 JoseRodriguez -> I love my mac
14:18:43 Mathew Needleman -> Totally unrelated but I was very sick during the making of this movie. I think I went to bed after this scene
14:18:50 Mathew Needleman -> Glad you enjoyed it, Andy
14:18:59 susanvg -> adds to the mad video maker look
14:19:05 Peggy George -> my flipvideo camera doesn't have a microphone input and I need to get a new one!
14:19:05 JL -> getting harder and harder to find webcams with ext. mic option
14:19:16 JoseRodriguez -> I still have one
14:19:26 Peggy George -> wow Mathew! had no idea!
14:19:27 kcaise -> hi matt
14:19:28 JoseRodriguez -> at least 6 or seven years old
14:19:30 Paula Naugle -> Hi Matt.
14:19:33 matt montagne -> hey y'all
14:19:37 JL -> asked the guy why that is and he said consumers were confused by extra plugs ?!?!?
14:19:46 shanda -> everyone should get a Mac
14:19:49 Peggy George -> oh no JL!!
14:19:52 JoseRodriguez -> I have been using it for ustream.. where I record but do NOT broadcast
14:19:59 JoseRodriguez -> it gives me an embed code
14:20:04 Peggy George -> look at all of that equipment!!
14:20:22 mrsdurff -> booya?
14:20:27 susanvg -> technology envy
14:20:29 JoseRodriguez -> yep.. booya
14:20:33 Mathew Needleman -> You reflect the lights so they're less harsh
14:20:34 mrsdurff -> hmmm
14:20:35 matt montagne -> where is the location of this video on the internet??

14:24:29 matt montagne -> perhaps use a stand along audio mic and recording device with the flip
14:24:31 Cathyjo in SC -> Yeah them Nat'l Bd candidate folks really fret over no audio input on cams
14:24:32 csgodfrey -> I have been trying to figure out what camera to buy..so this is great advice

14:25:11 Cathyjo in SC -> I have boosted audio in nb candidates vids before--they were freaking cuz NO editing allowed
14:25:11 marragem -> small wonders are good too
14:25:34 matt montagne -> I agree...software doesn't matter either...what matters is learning the skills of mixed media narrative...
14:25:34 Peggy George -> pwoessner is the chair of the PR committee for the K12online conference
14:26:20 mrsdurff -> I would agree with mathew here
14:26:22 matt montagne -> DV cams are tough to manage in a multi user environment
14:26:39 Andy McKiel -> I still love using DV tapes... but waiting for importing can be time-consuming
14:26:40 matt montagne -> tape cameras, with all their moving parts, get pretty beat up
14:26:45 mrsdurff -> hi doug
14:26:56 ds -> Hi Lisa, and all
14:26:56 Peggy George -> I find it really easy to use the miniDV!
14:27:00 Cathyjo in SC -> I stll prefer dv tape cams too

14:27:13 Peggy George -> miniDV works great with live streaming too
14:27:25 Cathyjo in SC -> @Peggy yes
14:27:30 courosa -> these are the same principles we follow at the U
14:27:34 Peggy George -> I always record on tape too so I have a backup to the live stream
14:27:34 Sue L. -> used to use DV tape but like Cameras with SD cards for the portability
14:27:41 Lorna -> I had a problem of taping over previous work
14:27:57 Cathyjo in SC -> as u tape, film degrades
14:28:51 Peggy George -> another great piece of advice--listent to your own advice :-)
14:28:58 Dorie Glynn (doriedance) -> Hi Marlene
14:29:13 Andy McKiel -> I love how you modelled what you were discussing through your own video production
14:29:28 Mathew Needleman -> http://www.needleworkspictures.com/ocr/blog/?p=407
14:29:29 susanvg -> deconstruct to construct
14:29:30 marlene.weaver -> Hi, Dorie
14:29:32 Peggy George -> how do you find those movie clips??
14:29:35 jackiegerstein -> That's like presenters saying that they listen to their students ideas and suggestions and don't include the students in their presentations
14:29:48 Paula Naugle -> Mathew, how do you get the grid on your movie?
14:29:50 Peggy George -> how did you create your video? planning process
14:30:26 roxanne -> midnight cowboy movie clips with permission?
14:30:42 Peggy George -> it has been much easier to keep up with the k12online conference when the presentations went to 20 min presentations
14:30:49 Peggy George -> first year they were an hour long
14:31:09 jackiegerstein -> What was the youtube channel he justed showed?
14:31:47 Peggy George -> http://www.youtube.com/user/lifelonglearners

14:32:59 Cathyjo in SC -> I have my college aged kids AND their usernames as a google alert
14:33:04 Paula Naugle -> I too have a Google alert for my name.
14:33:07 Cathyjo in SC -> makes it ez to keep up with them
14:33:15 jackiegerstein -> Wow I have "Mr Winkle Wakes" on one of my blogs - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lm1sCsl2MQY&feature=channel_page didn't know it was Mathew's !
14:33:48 matt montagne -> that door scene project from AFI is a great one
14:34:01 Cathyjo in SC -> @Durff good to hear your voice! It's been a while, no?
14:34:16 Peggy George -> in the real world :-) vimeo is a great tip for classrooms!
14:34:16 JoseRodriguez -> yep.. vimeo.. is pretty cool
14:34:17 mrsdurff -> as opposecd to the fake world
14:34:21 Dorie Glynn (doriedance) -> yes, @matt montagne, great resource
14:34:25 shanda -> school tube is pretty good
14:34:29 matt montagne -> blip.tv is decent as well, but some times flaky
14:34:32 Lorna -> there is a windows version of directors board
14:34:38 jackiegerstein -> LOL @durff
14:34:51 mrsdurff -> lol
14:34:56 matt montagne -> but matthew is right, youtube is great if you want authenticity
14:35:14 susanvg -> some school boards here blog streaming during school hours
14:35:28 matt montagne -> try to give assignments where students have to tell a story without including video of people...then you can post to youtube with fewer privacy issues
14:35:56 Peggy George -> good point Matt!
14:36:06 susanvg -> @matt montagne - good idea
14:36:23 JoseRodriguez -> there you go..
14:36:24 Peggy George -> fair use doctrine is so important to understand!
14:36:27 JoseRodriguez -> well said
14:36:37 Peggy George -> :-)
14:36:39 Andy McKiel -> :-)
14:36:48 matt montagne -> LOL Matthew!!!!
14:36:58 Paula Naugle -> lol
14:37:00 jackiegerstein -> I believe that this generation is going to change our ideas of copyright and fair use
14:37:02 Peggy George -> it only takes one person to notice :-)
14:37:03 Andy McKiel -> Clustrmaps
14:37:09 Lorna -> they will now after such a good presentation
14:37:12 roxanne -> thanks for sharing that with us
14:37:41 roxanne -> At conferences we see clips everywhere and no one even mentions fair use and education
14:37:43 Paula Naugle -> I like that we have fair use for educational purposes.
14:37:49 susanvg -> unfortunately copyright different in Canada
14:38:01 sr -> I am being paged. Sorry I have to leave
14:38:10 roxanne -> as educators we are often setting poor examples
14:38:10 Paula Naugle -> Bye sr.
14:38:11 courosa -> yea, Canada's fair dealing is actually worse than fair use
14:38:24 Peggy George -> fair use is so much more important than charts with specific criteria--we have more freedom than we take advantage of as educators
14:39:07 Peggy George -> vidsnacks with Tim Holt on Ning is a good resource
14:39:08 Paula Naugle -> Love the guy that made the Disney video to showcase fair use copyright issues.
14:39:27 Peggy George -> yes Paula-that Disney video is excellent!
14:39:32 Paula Naugle -> Sorry he used Disney clips to make the video.
14:39:48 matt montagne -> youtube is the place to go, I agree
14:39:56 Peggy George -> http://vidsnacks.ning.com/
14:40:19 Peggy George -> thanks JL!
14:40:30 matt montagne -> good point, Durff...afi is great resource
