Just a quick post about some of the technology and technology challenges I'm working with to pull this all together. those of you who find this sort of stuff boring, skip ahead to the end. :)
I'm shooting my video and stills using just my iPhone 5. I've got a standard lavalier mic but had to purchase an adaptor in order for it to work.
To maximize storage, I'm dumping photos daily from the iPhone to a 16gb ipad mini. I've been doing all the video editing in iMovie on this device and it's amazing! Works like a charm. For those of us old enough to remember the first version iMovie and the old mini dv cameras, it's almost miraculous to think of how compact this portable studio is! That being said, I'm regretting my decision to only get the 16 gb ipad mini as I have already fill the hard drive to capacity. :(
Never fear though as I have a plan. Using the iMac in the lobby I was able to pull the photos off my ipad using the Image Capture app and the transfer them to a spare SD card using my handy dandy USB SD card reader ( I always carry one of these as you never know when they'll come in handy).
Wifi has been sketchy, even at a nice hotel like Hilton. I abandoned plans to Try and Skype with students due to this.
Instead, I challenge you all to post questions to the comment area below about anything regarding the art and architchture I'vPochards or thoughts about the connection between art and architecture. Thanks!
