      My first video to break 100K views. I'm kind of proud of my quick and dirty editing.

      I am working on a video for the Year in Review for JSC. I was given a list of items that are must haves for said video at the end of October. 


      Looking at this list I and going over the content, all the content that are must haves for this video we have a 4K version in our archives from this year. AWWWW YEAAAAAAH! sunglasses I also see it as a opportunity to try something quite far away from what NASA is know for putting out. 


      Working hard on this video to meet a rough edit deadline of mid November with anticipation of video release in December. 


      Send the rough off for review. The video went thought one layer of review with little changes requested. GREAT, or so I thought. This review had no meaning what so ever. It stilled need the approval of the a much higher up. 


      Two weeks after draft review and two days before final delivery I get an email from higher up with the changes they want to see in the video. My jaw hit the floor and my blood pressure spiked. After a walk around the pond and a cup of coffee lets actually look at said changes. 


      These changes where total content changes and lots of new content add to said video. All the new content asked for we didn't have in 4k.  disappointed_relieved Well back to 720p. 


      Well joy... pulled some long hours to get a new video out for review before final due date. 


      Make due date for final. Out of hours for the week. In on a Friday for 2 hours for a completely unrelated meeting, and "BING!" a email for a "quick change". At 40 of 40 for the week, they will have to wait till next week, but they needed for that night. Did I mention no OT approved. Had to leave . 


      That next week the video was release internally after they had asked for another round of change before I was even complete with the new content changes they asked for. (The rough is now live on the intranet at this point.) JOY! They still want the new changes and will replace the video when they get the new one. Complete it a short time later, and send it to the necessary parties. 


      Well that leads me to this week. End of December almost a month later after the final version was complete or so i thought. I get an email asking for parts of this other video to be added into the what was suppose to be completed and released picture. 


      I am still waiting for the video to reach the internet so I know it is finally done.

  • About Me

    I work for NASA as a video editor. And yes I do see aliens daily. They are kind of boring just sitting there floating in a series of tubes. For the most part they just want to conduct experiment.

    I when to the University of Houston and majored in media production. I loved every minute of my college life. Sometimes I wish I could go back but then I remember the bills.... =(

      are you seriously a NASA Video Engineer? Because I think that's one of the coolest jobs I've ever heard of. I always wanted to work for NASA when I was little.

      Well, right about now, I was originally planning to be announcing that tickets for RvB:TX were on sale. Unfortunately, that's not going to be the case. You might have heard that the RT staff has their own event planed for late May. We, the organizers of RvB:TX, don't feel it will be possible to compete with a larger and better organized event, so we're officially canceling our event.

      But all is not lost! We're keeping the group page for two reasons:

      1) RvB:TX will now be a hub for all RT fans in and around Texas. We'll keep people up to date on RT related events in and around Texas, from small meet ups to the RoosterTexas event the staff is planning. If you have not already done so, please watch the group to stay up to date on the news.

      2) We're planning a smaller get together in Austin this winter. It won't be as big as our original plans, but it'll still be a chance for fans to get together and have fun.

      For more details, please see the journal here.

      Hey, it's nice to know there is at least one Astros fan! Thanks for joining my Astros group. Hope you accept my friend request.

      Friendly Neighborhood RvB:TX Admin here! Just a few updates on the group today:
      1) We officially have 200 members! Sweet! You Guys Rock!

      2) We'd really appreciate it if everyone watches the group and checks the forum every few weeks or so. We post polls and messages on the group and we need YOUR input to make sure that this RvB:TX will be the best yet smiley0.gif . If you already watch the group, thanks a ton! If not, go here and click the watch button. There are also polls concerning likelihood of attendance and optimum ticket price in the group forum.

      3) The event is being tentatively scheduled for next March. Hope to see you there!

      4) We could really use the help of a Web Designer. if you or someone you know could help us get even a bare bones site running, it would be greatly appreciated. However, please note that this will be an act of volunteerism on your part. We'd love to pay you, but we just don't have the money. But isn't being able to say that you designed a site in order to celebrate the greatest Machinima series ever reward enough? If you are still interested, please contact myself, or one of the other group admins.

      5) Keep active in the group. The planning staff is constantly looking for cool ideas for events, and they are the best spot to get yours out there.

      That's all folks! Keep your eyes glued to the screen for further updates.
