AHS13 Video Update
December 3, 2013
If you were in attendance at AHS13, you probably noticed the numerous technical challenges experienced by the A/V providers. These challenges ultimately affected all technical aspects of the symposium including the videos from capture to post production.
Even after weeks turned into months, the A/V provider has only been able to supply us with five complete videos and 24 incomplete videos. All of the videos feature varying degrees of poor audio and video (bad camera angle, back lighting, blur). The incomplete videos, with few exceptions, are too incomplete or too poor in audio quality to post.
Following is a list of available videos on our youtube channel’s AHS13 playlist on our youtube channel. AHS13 attendee Charlie Hudson captured audio for many of the talks; we’ve tagged those to the playlist as well. Thanks, Charlie! Slides for a number of talks are available on our SlideShare channel.
- Gad Saad (missing several minutes at the beginning and very poor audio quality. We discussed withholding the video–due to the especially poor audio quality–but because the talk was so well received we decided to go ahead and make the talk public at Gad’s request. If you can manage to make it through the first few minutes, your ears will habituate and you will be able to hear the talk)
- Grayson Wheatley (published, complete)
- Kyle Maynard (published, complete)
- J. Michael Hayes (published, complete)
- Hamilton M. Stapell (published, complete)
- Victoria Prince (published, incomplete–several minutes missing at the end of the video)
- Terry Wahls (complete, unpublished at Dr. Wahls’ request due to pending publication of the data discussed in the talk)
It is not enough to say that we are disappointed in this outcome—heartbroken might be closer. These video presentations are part of our larger mission to spread the ancestral health message far and wide to those who are unable to attend. We also know that they are useful to our presenters and it is part of our promise to you.
As we plan AHS14, we’re working to insure excellent A/V services with resulting high quality videos. We’ll be returning to an academic setting where the recording of presentations is routine. We’ve seen their videography and we’re certain they’re up to the task of capably capturing the talks and providing the videos in minimal time.
