Steve Lackmeyer brought me the info, guided me through our archives for the appropriate photos and helped produce the above video. Should be helpful this week during the Festival of the Arts. There is a ton of construction downtown, it’s really not easy to navigate.
I caught the opening ceremonies of the World Creativity Forum held at the Cox Convention Center this morning. The above video was captured with a Canon 7D and I used the audio from the camera in the highlights part. The outside standup used the Zoom H1N for audio.
I wish I could have stayed all day, although I did return to interview “Russian Sam” this evening. I’ll try to carve up that video later tonight. Ilia Shvetcov has a great story. And thanks to Casey Cornett for his input.
But I couldn’t stay all day, had matters back at the office. The lineup of the Creativity Forum was packed with interesting people and I only heard the first 90 minutes of this morning’s session. Listening to people like Sir Ken Robinson, John Herrington, David Pogue and others speak is inspiring.
A couple of notes: the event is well staffed. Lots of youth in red t-shirts willing to help, guide and answer questions. And the parking at the Santa Fe Garage was remarkably cheap ($3 this morning, $2 this evening) and convenient.
And below is Sir Ken Robinson in his own words: what is the World Creativity Forum and its purpose.
I’ve interviewed Jonathan Fowler a few times. Norman Music Festival. Wimgo videos. BlockParty OKC.
Great guy. Talented guy. Here are a few more excerpts from the interview at this past weekend’s fashion show event on Film Row in downtown OKC.
Here’s some cool stuff. Check out the Buzz blog on the Fowler VW site and on Facebook. Fowler has been involved in the production of 10 holiday songs from local bands called “Nice People Holiday Compilation 2010″. And, Merry Christmas, you have an opportunity at the free download. Plus, there are versions on vinyl.
Be sure to click on the cool concept VDub sessions too.
