Winter appears to finally be here, and what better way to kick off the season than by shooting video of the best ski instructors in the Intermountain West on a bluebird day at Snowbird. The goal was to video the fifty or so instructors skiing three different tasks and provide the video for viewing and analysis at the end of the day. Sounds easy, but along the way I had to figure out how to quickly download and provide the videos to each of the six groups to analyze on separate laptops. First, I shot at 1080i instead of 1080p, so I could ingest the files through iMovie on my Macbook Pro, which also converted them to 540p QT files. Then I catalogued the files into pre-made folders for each of the groups and transferred them via a FW800 drive and gig sticks. This all went well, except for the few PC laptops which didn't read the QT files. In the end I'll try to stick with Macs for the entire process, or do more testing on what files play easily on PCs. Back at home I converted all the files to mp4 and uploaded them to Sprongo for the instructors to view and analyze to their hearts content in the months ahead.
