A friend was doing some research into instrument flying and needed to locate a key text on the subject. This article from a 1937 issue on Flight is heavily cited in academic texts, but as of several years ago is not available online because the parent organization’s archive went dark during a site upgrade in 2019 and hasn’t reemerged. London-based Flight International has also been through an acquisition (DVV Media Group out of Germany) so finding the right person to talk to was tricky.
Because it’s so difficult to find this text and it seems to be so widely cited, I wanted to publish it here to make sure that other folks would have an easier time locating the text.

So, you wrapped a big… Continue reading Why your video team needs Retrospectives (and how to run them)

Whether you’re trying to reach prospects, customers, or internal stakeholders, live video provides a powerful, engaging way to get your message out into the world. But if you don’t have any live streaming experience, the process can seem a little daunting — especially if you’ve ever witnessed any live streams gone wrong.

Every marketer knows doing things “the old fashioned way” is unsustainable yet most people still don’t think this same way about video. Agencies and brands alike keep getting stuck viewing video through the lens of the “deliverable,” meaning a snappy 15 or 30 second spot that you make once, then syndicate across platforms.

The following setup is exactly what I use to send audio… Continue reading My professional sound setup for live streaming with Twitch and OBS
