This project was assigned by Christal Brown from the Dance Department. She is trying to archive all footage from her past performances into one YouTube channel in order to create a highlight reel. Over the course of the summer I digitized over 50 tapes of her performances, named them and organized them into a cloud storage drive. After that I moved them to a YouTube channel where they now reside. The next steps are now to help her with editing and finding a better way to organize that footage.
I used El Gato video capture in order to convert her VHS tapes to a digital format. Unfortunately, El Gato only captures live video, which means I had to monitor the digitization of the tapes. In other words, if the tape was two hours long, I had to wait 2 hours to digitize it. Over the course of the summer I managed to complete all the tapes and return them to her. Among her many performances, the most recent one had been “The Opulence of Integrity” which was performed in Middlebury.
