Screencast Setup

Screencast Setup

Waiting for the trash truck to go by so I can record some audio. Making a little screencast for WooThemes. All you need is ScreenFlow, Zoom H4N, and FCP X. Or any equivalent really, just my tools of choice.


Getting WooThemes Attention

For those unaware, I’ve been on the job hunt since late December. I finished school and moved to Plainfield, IN ready to find the next thing after college. The job search has been a little disheartening though so far, as many can relate. I’ve been turned down from three potential jobs for being over qualified, and in general a job that sounds genuinely exciting is hard to find. There is always some hope on the horizon though. One of the internets fastest growing companies, and one of my favorites, is hiring. WooThemes is looking for a community manager. When I read this news I probably got too excited and hurried off to my mail program to apply. I sent off my application today and then sat here thinking, what can I do to try and stand out from all of the other applications they are getting?

First you must know, part of the requirements for the job is to interact with their users across Twitter, Facebook, and their blog. So that gave me the idea to create a simple page on my site summarizing why I’d be great for WooThemes. I’ve seen it done before with success and thought I’d give it a shot. I thought it was especially appropriate to that this page is on my WooThemes site.

With that said this is where you come in.

I’d be forever grateful to you if you went over to my WooThemes page and used the Facebook & Twitter buttons to show your support. Don’t be afraid to tell your friends as well. You’ll hopefully help me stand out from all other applicants, and maybe WooThemes will think I have just the right amount of qualifications for the position. Thanks a ton. 😉


Shooting Video With The iPhone 4

Alright, the iPhone 4 has been in the wild for a couple of months and I haven’t got around to shooting video with it yet. My bad…I’ll admit, but I made everything right this weekend while I was on my way to visit Mindy. I’ve been wanting to shoot for a while with my iPhone. It has nice 720HD capabilities which makes the video actually look alright! I was very surprised that the video worked well after giving it a little color treatment. It did help to have lots of natural light available… 🙂 It’s awesome to know I’m carrying around a pretty capable video camera at all times. Nothing beats the 7D though, at least until I can get a 5D. Just day dreaming… So here is the video, let me know what you think. Shot with an iPhone 4, edited in Final Cut, treated with Color.
