Our ODLP (Oklahoma Digital Learning Project) team is still in Honolulu, but we are leaving in about an hour for the airport. I’ve spent several hours this morning and afternoon importing the video of the entire USS Oklahoma Memorial dedication yesterday at Pearl Harbor from the DV camera onto a hard drive. I’ll then be compressing and sending this video to OETA so they can break it into different segments and post it online. It is also possible we may (or they may) create a DVD of this entire ceremony, which those in attendance as well as others may want.
Before leaving Ford Island (Pearl Harbor) yesterday I edited and uploaded two different video clips, which are now on the NewsOK.com website for the Oklahoma World War II Voices project.
This first clip is just over six minutes long, and is some highlight footage I actually shot on my own Sony DV camera. I had thought this would potentially be used as “B roll” images in a narrated newscast, but it’s actually online just as I submitted it:
The other video we uploaded and shared yesterday is this segment of pre- and post-dedication interviews, which is over 17 minutes long.
I edited this quickly in iMovie and added some titles for each segment. One of the segments (I think it is the third one) is actually of our Oklahoma governor, Brad Henry. I didn’t shoot this video, it was shot by OETA videographer Boots Kennedye. It was (and is) a real thrill to have been able to help in a small way document this event and share video footage of it back with students and others in Oklahoma– and elsewhere connecting to these videos over the web!
