The Admissions Office

A slightly more, er, repressed version of TV’s The Office.

We used two Sony HVR-Z1U Digital cameras (handheld), internal audio, natural lighting supplemented with one professional light, and Sony Vegas Pro editor.

Podcast

I worked for my (very tiny) alma mater’s publications office, and my boss decided to let myself and a friend establish a weekly webcast with the dual purpose of entertaining the student body and marketing the college to high school juniors and seniors.

Patterned audaciously after SNL’s ‘Weekend Update,’ NathaCast was a small production. Laura and I wrote, filmed, edited, green-screened, mixed, and produced the NathaCast weekly, with help, advice, and supplementary filming and editing by Rob Larson.

Our First NathaCast – Rough vision of what was to come

The Director’s Cut – Alternate take of our fourth effort

Finals Week Approacheth – Near the end of our first semester of filming

Guest Host – The US Women’s National Team assistant coach filled in for Laura

Retrospective – Everyone has one, right?

We used a Sony HVR-Z1U Digital camera, internal audio, various light equipment,* and Sony Vegas Pro editor.

*I do mean various. As you can see, our location changed often, and we gained more equipment including real lights with C-stands and barn doors, reflectors, and even an umbrella which we mostly used because it gave us something cooler to look at than blue plastic chairs.
