A Moratorium on “Clant Plosings” -Geoff & Jeffrey #12

Greetings! Welcome to the Holbrook New Media Audio Feed.

We do audio, video, content creation, and that other stuff. holbrooknewmedia.com.


Today on Episode 12 of The Geoff & Jeffrey show, here are some of the things we are talking about:

Geoff faked out Jeffrey with a plane crash photo from Universal Studios War of the Worlds exhibit.

A comparison of celsius in Australia and fahrenheit in the U.S.. http://www.rapidtables.com/convert/temperature/how-celsius-to-fahrenheit.htm

Geoff’s using a more simple setup, and Jeffrey is sporting some new sound treatment.

Jeffrey’s older brother loves the show and says he likes it better than Jeffrey’s earlier podcasting efforts.

Younger people seem to interpret podcasting as the free exchange of ideas in conversation, not a scripted thing like public radio.

Geoff likes the No Agenda show with John C. Dvorak and Adam Curry. http://www.noagendashow.com/

High megapixel cameras are really getting up there. The differences in the old film method of photography and the new methods of digital.

Jeffrey’s first 35mm film camera was a used Yashica TL Super. He got it to learn about how aperatures and shutter speeds interacted. http://www.mikeeckman.com/2015/12/quick-review-yashica-tl-super-1966/

The balance between good composition and just blazing away taking hundreds of images.

Jeffrey got a taste of the eLearning module work that Geoff usually does by doing a voice over of the announcement of the highlights of the new union contract for the American Postal Workers Union. http://www.apwu133.com/

Geoff says that it is much easier to do voice over work that you are personally invested in, as opposed to general voice over work.

Different audio takes seem to have a slightly different sound if you don’t do them in one sitting.

Most union websites have only text and very few do audio.

No matter what you do, some people will like it, and some will not.

Adobe Captivate has a good text to speech feature.

Another Verses In Vox episode was released that Jeffrey did the voice over for. “The Children’s Hour” by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. holbrooknewmedia.com/verses2

We explore some features on Blab that Geoff discovered. blab.im

Comparing Geoff getting into Blab easier directly with a webcam and mic as opposed to using Wirecast.

Geoff’s Rode NTG-2 shotgun mic.

Track pads, vs trackball mouse, vs conventional mouse.

Looking around our studios on the video.
