Episode 166 – Paul Bright – Digital Filmmaking / audio

Digital Filmmaking

Director Paul Bright (@PaulBrightFilms on twitter) sits down with host Craig Price to discuss digital filmmaking. Comicpalooza premiered Paul’s latest film “Long Term Parking” on May 23rd. Little did he suspect that his trip to Houston would force him to cross paths with Craig! The two discuss creating films for the small, small screen (phones and tablets), how you think about shooting films with unlimited recording capabilities,  auditioning actors a foot away from a cell phone camera and some of the pros and cons of the available distribution outlets for independent filmmakers. They also discuss how the new, smaller high definition cameras allow for more shot flexibility and how actors act knowing that they can do unlimited takes (in theory) without having to start the scene all over. Also, Craig blatantly tries to get cast in Paul’s next film. Pathetic, really. It’s a great discussion for anyone interested in making their own independent films.

emceeing

Thom Singer (@ThomSinger on Twitter) returns to give host Craig Price some tips on being an emcee. Being an emcee or host for a corporate event is nothing like being an emcee at a comedy club. To help with Craig’s upcoming hosting duties at Comicpalooza, he decided to look for a professional. Past guest and speaker pal, Thom is widely known as the “Conference Catalyst” and professional emceeing is right in his wheelhouse. The two discuss, what the goals of the emcee is at an event, how to keep things moving along, how to deal with a speaker who goes long. They also discuss another major aspect of emceeing and is far more common, hosting a panel. How do you prepare, how much do you prepare, how do you get quiet guests involved and most importantly, how do you control the one panelist that tries to dominate the time.

Patrick Allmond (@PatrickAllmond on twitter) returns to talk the ins and outs to video marketing with host Craig Price. Let’s be clear, Craig makes no bones about it when he discusses his dislike for most video marketing. Why do you think he podcasts instead of vlogs?? Patrick talks both technical and practical as he explains what he uses and how he uses video marketing. He goes over the equipment needed (not much) as well has his process from camera to final post online, not only just creating his 3in5 videos but how he repurposes his video for blogs, podcasts, newsletters and more.

conflict management

Mark Hehl with Solutions4Business joins host Craig Price to discuss conflict management. Not many people like conflict in the workplace and even fewer like getting involved when the conflict may not involve you. Mark and Craig discuss how conflict can be good for organizations, but they also discuss how planning ahead can eliminate many of the potential conflicts that could pop up on a project. They discuss the reasons for conflict, including people who just like pushing buttons and causing chaos (Craig calls them “social terrorists”) as well as separate departments having separate goals and never communicating them to each other.  All of this talk will be showcased at the Southern New England Chapter of PMI Professional Development Day in Hartford CT this April 27th and 28th. If you’re in the Nutmeg state at the time, register at SNEC-PMI.org. Hope to see you there!

Episode 159 – Geoff Akins Hannah – Performing for Children / audio

Performing for Children

Geoff Akins Hannah (@BubbleGeoff on Twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss performing for children. Kids are not Craig’s thing. For the most part they seem like small annoying adults with little accountability and an enabler or two trailing behind them. He likes individual kids but not children and certainly not in large groups. Thankfully there are people like Geoff who have no problems with kids and in-fact seeks them out as his market as a speaker. Known as the Bubble Master, Geoff invited Craig to a performance while touring through Texas.  The two discussed Geoff’s start with developmentally challenged children, is there a Bubble Cabal as well as a slew of tips on how to interact, entertain and enlighten groups of children. He literally does hundreds of shows a years for thousands of kids and adults. If you want to understand performing for children better, this is the guy to talk to. Thankfully, he’s on the podcast so no need to figure out where in the country he might be today!
