Video around Heavitree Holiday Celebration August Bank Holiday Monday

I have done an advert for this event

and there are more conenctions turning up. Samba Marcianas were in Coburg recently and there are two clips on YouTube.

also Spin 2 have their own clips, better editing from the Globe.

Stripey will not be in Heavitree this year. He is in Poland on tour. But here is a track from his CD. Details on YouTube.

The Open Mic is still open but bookings are filling up fast. I went to the Oddfellows yesterday and they may turn up in the park. Also some people may continue at the Oddfellows in the evening. The lighting there is terrible so the open air is better for video I think.

Heavitree as prototype for Exeter events

The relevance of Heavitree Bank Holiday Monday for "wifi Exeter" could be the wider use of online video to promote and extend events. In essence the message is fairly easy to get over. August Bank Holiday Monday again, same place as last time. So in theory more complex messages are possible with less than a year to load the video ahead of the next occasion.

#likeminds last year showed a Nokia phone and Kodak camera. I still think there is an issue with file sizes, video can be 300 megs or so. But maybe wifi can cope. More on this when #likeminds is in Exeter. Somebody will know of an example somewhere.

For now, loading video ahead of an annual cycle is making most sense.

Spin 2 and advert for Heavitree Holiday Celebration on YouTube

Spin 2 will be in Heavitree Pleasure Ground again this Bank Holiday Monday. I have posted another clip to YouTube. The quality is not HighDef but it is nine minutes long and still loads ok.

Also an advert for the event on Bank Holiday Monday. There may be several cameras this year so we may swap enough for a better edit. Sound ok and this should continue.
