My Forest Management Mediasite Productions

While I am not responsible for the content of these presentations (responsible parties are credited for each presentation), I do go out on location with all equipment necessary to record, improvise the optimal set-up, coach presenters on the Mediasite format, and work with each presenter to ensure that they are comfortable with the process and equipment that is used. 

These presentations are all "live takes" - there is not an opportunity to go back, rerecord, or edit.  Like everything else in life, it necessitates compromises between an ideal and matters at hand.
