Show just opened this evening, so the floor videos will be forthcoming. Internet at the Hilton and convention center is not optimal, but I'll do the best I can.
Rigging Innovations Curv and CPX are uploading now. Most will be linked from the previous uploads, and many of the older PIA videos can be seen in the same channel pages.

We didn't know we were doing these this year (until yesterday), so it's kind of a kludge; we don't have our standard equipment.Unsure

would be great to have "also" (and I do understand all the work/coordination/luck that needs to happen at the same time) Parachute Systems, BASIK, Parachutes de France/Zodiac.
PIA needs MORE people like DSE in order to have all exhibitors interviewed, all seminars filmed, and also a quick selection of visitors.
DSE does deserve far more than a golfclap for this work.

Like the BPA does, would be good. I asked Spot about it and he gave me the reasoning why it wasn't done (not for Spot trying) and it's all a bit lame.

PIA should be grateful for the exposure you give them.

The manufacturers are very, very grateful for the exposure. Some of them actually chase me down before the show. Although it's a ton of work (you can see the uploads are occurring at 4:00 a.m. with training sessions starting at 8:00 a.m.), they're a lot of fun, and folks have always seemed to appreciate the work.

I think the non-rigging seminars should all be filmed/posted too. However, there is a large diff between the 10 minute FI's (Field Interviews) and an hour/2 hour long presentation, and there is a great difference between the volunteer room monitor that manages 9 training rooms vs needing 9 cameras going at once, with a minimum of 3 operators, and then the editing/collation/storage costs of the roughly 100 two-hour sessions. PIA doesn't have a grundle of $$, as they're entirely volunteer-based.
It sure would be nice to have the ability to catch them all. PD is filming/uploading their own presentations, they can be found on the PD website after a while.

Thanks Douglas, once again. It's a pretty big job, especially for somebody who told me a few days ago that he wouldn't be making videos this year :-) Anyway, I appreciate them very much, as always, and am glad you're even pointing out to some of the interviewees that some of the viewers are new jumpers doing "the sponge thing". As you know, that's me.

I was as surprised as anyone to find out I'd be doing the vids; PIA had asked someone else.

That person bailed on them at the last minute. I was asked to help out, but was already in Florida, so no gear with me. Late afternoon on Sunday...no pro video rental stores open. Best Buy didn't have much, so we did what we could with what we could source on very short notice. Scotty Burns agreed to be a camera op, and he had a half-decent shotgun mic. All in all, it didn't turn out too badly. I'm glad people find them of value.

Some of the interviewees really didn't do their products a great service and without your questions wouldn't have really anything to say. It's FREE advertising people...

It was interesting that one of the vendors there commented "We only service military, so we're not interested in being interviewed."

A couple hours later, I introduced a colonel in the Indian Army, responsible for certain types of purchases. He had come to PIA predominantly based on the videos we'd shot at the previous symposium. Then there are the skydiving vendors that practically chased us down with "what time can you come by and get us on tape?"

For me, I'm very interested in what the military is doing. Some of the things seen in the video are very cool, such as the CPS mobile breaching system with the sledge hammer, pick and ladder.Smile

Mirage was showing a new Accuracy setup, Aerodyne spoke to it (but showed nothing), and SunPath also pointed to an Accuracy rig.
It was interesting to see/hear the renewed interest in Accuracy (perhaps now that it's a separate event?)

Re: [DSE] PIA 2013 Videos [In reply to] Can't Post

still have 5 to watch :
USPA-Ed Scott
Cobham
Skydive Perris - Mary Tortomasi
Sonic-Tonfly
Cookie

Very glad to finally see and hear our Jerry Baumchen (which was a big surprise to me, I imagined him as a grey bearded sailor Laugh), and also our SangiroSmile
Also very happy to see "different" vendors as Oriental Weaving

Many thanks for the great work, specially given the conditions.
I just find it a bit saddening from "The Industry" who has more cameras than jumpers per jump, supersonic freefall footage , you name it someone filmed it, that "they" didnt manage to have "more people like DSE" to get a complete representation of the symposium. But that is just me.
Great thanks again for the effort

edited to add :
the Norman Kent interview should be a sticky in the video forum Smile

A thought or two (not mine, just some expressed...)

All of PIA is volunteer. Everyone. so...
5x rooms = 5x videographers
5x videographers + 2 hour sessions x 5 sessions=50 hours of footage (per day)

Cost to edit isn't going to be cheap. Who pays for that? I like you guys, but I'm sure not donating that kind of time.Tongue Perhaps PIA could talk USPA into spending some of their "sport promotion" $$, but remember, PIA isn't connected to USPA; they're separate entities.

Next thought...The PIA really wants butts in seats at the Symposium (which is also separate from the tradeshow floor). If the videos are up, it's hard to get people to attend.

Just a couple things to consider.

Re: [DSE] PIA 2013 Videos [In reply to] Can't Post

thanks for the explanations, and I am really wanting to come over next time.
Would they consider filming if they had enough people paying the equivalent of the registration fee for the videos ?

Also you mentionned somewhere (IIRC) that you had filmed the seminar you gave and that it was online somewhere. Any hint about where we can find that ? Angelic

That is what I've done at the BPA AGM. The main room is filmed by our paid for AV guys. I ask those who are presenting in the (two) smaller rooms if they can provide their own camera/operator. If they can't, I run around trying to film as much as I can.

I do the 'editing', and I use that term loosely, since you get what you pay for, i.e. nothing. Sometimes I will try and integrate the Power Point slides into the video.

Isn't the PIA about networking primarily? People don't go purely for the symposium do they? The talks are an added draw for those who were probably going anyway? It really isn't practical for a lot of people to attend, especially those outside of CONUS. Yes, putting them online might lose them a few attendees, but it will be of greater benefit to the community as a whole

Yeah man, you do a hell of a job leading them into the right questions we want answered. Again props for that. They really don't know how lucky on both accounts to A. To be filmed and B. To have you be the one filming asking the right questions. (minus velocity girl of course!)

Re: [cpoxon] PIA 2013 Videos [In reply to] Can't Post

I can't defend nor attack PIA; their program is voluntary right down to the projectors. No paid A/V guys.
5 rooms constantly running.
Me? I donated a tremendous amount of time, and can't blame the guy that bailed on them because he didn't know what he was getting into. Roughly 250 hours of footage to collate, assign, edit, output, upload is a big task to ask from a volunteer, IMO. Add to it that skydivers are never, ever satisfied with what's in front of them, there is never a real payoff. Maybe someone wants to take on the task of going to the manufacturers and charging them individually to build a collective plate, but that's more work that I'd want to put into it.

Re: [DSE] PIA 2013 Videos [In reply to] Can't Post

Not being able to attend this year, I was glad to see the videos that were put online, but do wish the seminars were as well.

Maybe this is something the community at large could take up, instead of relying on PIA - though you do lose some potential standardization.

The previous comment about more cameras being in skydiving than skydivers could easily be explored. Not that it solves all the steps, but I'm sure if there was a camera set up at the back of the room, prior to the speaker starting their seminar they could ask for a camera operator volunteer. I'm sure someone would volunteer. That doesn't solve any issues of making sure there is a camera in the room, or the editing, but I'm sure we could get more people to step up and volunteer. At least for filming.

The beard was expected because of the boat, la Hemingway (not Bill Booth style Tongue)
Baby still expected for next week, not before hopefully Angelic
Normiss is indeed very out of the loop. I even heard that a greenie lady was aware of it AngelicAngelic

Now back to the subject. Is it my computer or is it YouTube ? It seems the Skydive Perris video is kind of corrupted, bugs at the middle. Can anybody confirm ?
