OSU COLLEGE OF SCIENCE DISTINGUISHED LECTURE

THE JOB

When Nobel Laureate in Physics, Carl Wieman, visits Oregon State University, the College of Science puts me in charge of video. We shoot an interview in the afternoon and then I record the OSU Distinguished Lecture series later that night.

CARL WIEMAN INTERVIEW

Testing the Bounds of the Space-time Continuum. Today, Dr. Wieman is a busy man. He plans to visit with faculty. He'll drop in on student classes. And surely he's thinking about his lecture, wholch he'll soon deliver to an audience of hundreds. It's my responsibility to arrange the two-camera setup, positions the lights, attach microphones, and record the interview in as few takes as possible. Total time to shoot: less than an hour.

THE DISTINGUISHED LECTURE SERIES

The main event. Oregon State is a science school. Therefore, they need me to create a digital copy of Dr. Wieman's lecture for those who can't attend. I set up my two cameras in the back (wide-angle and medium-shot), run the audio from the soundboard, and record the presentation. Afterward, I import the footage to Premiere and intercut the lecture with PowerPoint slides for easy viewing. Result below:​​
