The on-going AES DVD Oral History Project is dedicated to preserving the genius of iconic audio pioneers in their own words. In conjunction with the upcoming 131st AES Convention set for Oct. 20-23at NY’s Javits Center, Committee Chair Jim Anderson developed a fast-paced series of YouTube clips and rousing video promos to highlight the series. Beginning on September 4, 2011, one video per day will automatically be delivered to the phones of subscribers. The promos will also be posted on YouTube and Facebook and Twitter. The campaign will wrap on October 23rd, 2011, the last day of the 131st AES Convention.
In addition giving Convention attendees and all pro audio enthusiasts a taste of the DVDs, Anderson created 17 masterful 1950s-style movie promo videos replete with period graphics. Anderson also edited fifty ‘best of’ 3-minute sample videos. Thanks to Leigh Newsome, Senior VP of Product at mobile video sharing platform, THWAPR, viewers can subscribe now to receive these exclusive three-minute videos to 757575 on mobile devices in the US & Canada.
“With over a hundred DVD interviews to choose from, deciding who to feature in this campaign was a major challenge,” Anderson says. “We ended up going with some of the best known and most colorful figures, including Dave Hewitt, Bob Ludwig, Frank Laico, Phil Ramone, Ray Dolby and John Eargle. But, all the audio wizards featured in the DVD Oral History Project are distinguished by idiosyncratic accomplishments which have literally changed the pro-audio world.”
