One of the things I like to see if I cannot attend an event in person is a video tour of the show floor. We can all read the tweets and blogs about the news coming out, but I personally like a “first person perspective” of an event. In other words, show me exactly what I would see if I was physically there.
With that in mind, yesterday I took some video of the show floor. It’s not a Hollywood-style production by any means but hopefully gives a sense of what attendees are seeing every day.
A couple of quick notes:
- It’s over 8 minutes long and I had thought about cutting it down, but then realized anyone who is interested in this tour would probably want to see more and not less of the show floor.
- Don’t be misled if you don’t see hoards of people in parts of the video. I recorded it around lunch time intentionally to avoid bigger crowds in the campus areas. Otherwise you would not be able to see anything! Believe me with 13,000+ attendees this place gets plenty crowded.
If this is something you like we can try to do it for other events (and no doubt improve upon my filmmaking abilities :-)). Enjoy!
