A while back near the end of September 2010, I had the opportunity to work up in Portland to cover OSU’s Rally in the Square downtown in Pioneer Square. Only recently was I able to use the footage for something tangible, but I am very happy with the result.
For my work with OSU Web Communications, I was asked to produce a short 30 second clip summarizing the event in spirit and in premise. This was to be used for the University’s Portland Business Roundtable address in Portland that happened on January 19th, 2011. To get an idea of the type of event this was, this was where many stakeholders of the university and Portland business leaders were in attendance. I was thrilled to be able to present a piece of my work to this group.
A couple of neat facts about the video:
- All of the audio was recorded on a small but extremely capable audio recorder known as the Zoom H1
- There is nothing like seeing so many people come together for an event like this, there was so much orange!
- The band is not the Oregon State marching band, rather they are a group of OSU alumni that used to be part of the band
This is the video in all it’s glory, I hope you do enjoy!
