Some recent Videos…

I got the urge to start mucking about with videos again over the holidays… embedded below are a couple of short videos I put together with some of my pics from last year:

1. Monster Jam

Shot at the Monster Truck show last year in Toronto at the Rogers Centre…

2. Wiarton Hockey

Erin’s younger cousin’s hockey team were playing in a tournament near us so we went to watch the game. The game ended up being their first win of the season so it was a fun one to watch.

I plan on doing a few more just to keep the creative juices flowing, and considering I took over 10,000 pictures last year there’s more than enough material to work with!

If you haven’t recently, be sure to swing by my Photo blog at http://photography.ryancoleman.ca it’s updated daily and, if I may say so myself, is on a pretty good roll right now images wise…

Why Go to VizThink 2009?

VizThink 2009 is quickly approaching (46 days to be exact) and things are really starting to heat up – we’re nailing down the final sessions & facilitators and just yesterday we announced the pre-conference workshop with Karl Gude, former graphics editor for Newsweek & the Associated Press.

Just for kicks I threw together a little “Why go to VizThink” video to hopefully convince a few of the fence sitters out there to come and join us in San Jose!

Of course I can be accused of being biased but the VizThink conferences are truly unique experiences and an absolute blast. The variety of people & backgrounds makes for some really interesting conversations and the content is always engaging and useful – One of the biggest complaints from last year was that people had difficulty choosing between all the sessions! I’m glad to say that the “problem” will probably be even worse this year – but we’ve got some ideas to help give people the opportunity to see more…

So come on down and join us in San Jose, Feb 22-25, 2009 – go to http://vizthink.com/vizthink2009 for more details and to register.

As an added bonus: If you register before Jan 15th use the code DCRC01 and you’ll get $100 off the regular attendee rate as well!
