Maker Faire NYC 2010: my slideshow with audio on CNET!

This weekend I shot the Maker Faire— it’s first NYC event, hosted at the New York Hall of Science.  It was a sprawling collection of artists, engineers, scientists, and tinkerers showing off their projects and getting together for a weekend of revelry… This event originated in 2006, put on by MAKE magazine in San Mateo, California… since then it’s branched out into a few other cities, and I am crossing my fingers that they do NYC annually from now on– i’ve never seen kids having so much fun!  It was my first attempt at creating a really slick and substantial slideshow of work in with audio clips layered over ambient sound to create a seamless soundtrack that would tell the story along with the pictures… I think I did a pretty good job, though I might have liked to make the whole thing longer and give the audio snippets a little more breathing room in between voices… bring in the ambient sounds/musics a bit more in the transitions.  But i didn’t know how long would be too long (attention span, etc) or if my slides were longer than 2 seconds if people would get annoyed… and of course as this was a piece of news I was submitting for CNET it was on a deadline so I did the best I could in the time I had… Take a look and mark your calendars to attend next year’s Maker Faire!
