Strangewaze is representing in Nashville this week! At the PCMA convention (the convention for convention and tourism pros), I’m presenting a DIY video strategy workshop at the start of the conference at the gorgeous and LEED Gold-certified Music City Center, and holding it down and filming interviews in the Video Capture Lounge.
I rolled in with exactly the amount of equipment I can carry and not a USB cable more and walking away from baggage claim with a bigass Pelican case all stamped with your production company is kiiiinda in my top favorite things, right up there with walking through a casino in a good suit. It says, now there is a woman doing. the. work. she. wants. and if you’re in step with her, you’re adding something to the party. I had a video partner meeting me there, so I wasn’t even trying to solo-shoot, but admittedly, I vowed to always bring a partner-in-crime along from here on out.
For the videos in the video capture lounge, I’ll be asking vendor partners and leaders of convention and visitors bureaus from around the world simple questions about their work, how their work is impactful, and what diversity and inclusion initiatives they have in their organizations. Psyched, of course, to meet such interesting people doing such interesting work, and very, very psyched to be shooting with people from around the world, and in front of a giant wall of windows with gorgeous natural light.
