Make Me Videos.

Many of you know of or have even played with VideoString, my thesis project. It's going well, with one small problem. The existing vocabulary is way too limited. Not only are there not enough words to choose from, but the words themselves don't have enough different video options associated with them. How can I remedy this situation? Post a video blog about it, of course...

Ashe asked a great question. "How do I get footage to you?"

To contribute your footage, post it somewhere. Ourmedia, Blip, Archive, your own domain... anywhere I can download it from. Then send me the link. headsoff at lanugo dot org.

Remember, I will trim the video and compress it so the less compressed the better for me. Also, it must be at least 2 seconds in length. Rock on.

Runtime is 1:54

hey serra,
how would you like our footage? shall we post blogs only with your words and then you can grab them from there?

Serra said...

Excellent question! Yeah - send me a link by e-mail or blog comment. I'd love a higher-res version if you have it, but I'll take anything! It will all end up 320x240 anyhow...
Thanks!
serra

Hey guys, I just heard you over at the video conference and got a chance to check out this project. I will look at your list some more and see what video I can find for ya.

I will see what I can do to help. I have lots of footage of frogs, but I see they are not on the list. Oh, well.

Great to see you today! Thanks for coming out!
