Last weekend I had the opportunity to hang out with my Humane Society of Ventura County friends at one of their annual fundraisers, Cats in the Canyon & Hounds in the Hollow at Arroyo Verde Park in Ventura, Calif. It was a perfect opportunity to shoot another daily video on my iPhone, this time though ALSO TO EDIT it on the iPhone. Thanks to Ray Meese at the VC Star for turning me on the the iPhone app, 1st Video by VeriCorder. There are some things to work out, like making sure the camera is MUCH more steady and practicing more on the app itself. It’s amazingly deep but complicated – it’ll just take time to practice. I cut a version in FCP to compare the two, not much difference! The version here is the iPhone version. Enjoy.

Humane Society of Ventura County PSA

Posted in Journalism

March, 2009: What started out as a video daily turned into a long-term PSA for my friends over at the Humane Society of Ventura County. I was going to do a daily on how the economy has impacted pet owners who have had to give up their dogs. Getting the shelter director on tape was the easy part, finding a person who gave up their dog to go on tape, not so easy. Nonetheless, I had enough interview to do a PSA. The idea was to make it available to the HS for their Website, or for any other purpose, they set me up with several of their staff and volunteers to capture some behind-the-scenes stuff. The bad news was it took me nine months to complete this. Regardless, if it can help my friends over at the shelter (www.humanesocietyvc.org), then more power to it.
