at Ithaca College
The all-day Epic No Frack Event held at Ithaca College in June of 2011
was a formidable undertaking for event organizers, Jeff and Jodi Andrysick.
Featuring nearly 45 speakers, 6 movies and 10 musicians,
the event also proved to be a major logistical challenge for the video-production team
enlisted to record and package the event.
With over twenty hours of video footage from a multi-camera set-up,
a collection of video uploads was produced that served several distinct purposes.
The event was produced and packaged in a manner that would not only give viewers
a chance to experience the entire event sequentially,
but would also act as a searchable theme-based video archive,
allowing viewers to locate and watch video segments tailored to their specific
concerns and interests.
In order to accomplish this, over a dozen hours of footage were logged and collated to be
subsequently audio re-mastered and then edited with graphics and credits.
The segments were then uploaded with searchable titles and tags to BlipTV, Youtube and Vimeo.
The final product of our labors was a polished, easily navigable and inclusive record of what
will surely become regarded as one of the major events in the battle over natural gas drilling.
