favequest nasty hockey show -episode 1

Hey Everyone,

Episode 1 is now done and posted. You can watch it below or click on the link below to watch it on where you can view it in full screen.

As one would expect with a first show, you run into a few hitches. First there was a UFC event that started at 3pm and ended at about 5:15 so we had to wait for that to finish. There were tons of kids there for the kickoff and the last fight got extremely bloody. It seems the forehead bleeds a lot. It reminds of the time my daughter cracked her eyebrow on the boards in our backyard hockey rink .... boy did that bleed. Couple of stitches later she was all good.

Then I had to sprint around Centrum mall to find the right firewire cable to record the video straight to my laptop to save time . None at Future Shop ... seems it was a popular item lately and they sold out (&$&*%!!!!) so I sprinted to Best Buy, found one and we were all good ... got it there in time to finish the setup before the end of the UFC blood bath.

With the late start we weren't able to edit the film in time to post the final cut before the 7pm game start so we decided to wait till today to do that. I think we'll likely do that form the next few shows since getting the video edited and encoded that quickly won't happen until we shorten the show and start editing as we are shooting ... basically recording live and shipping immediately.

I broke the video into three parts to make the encoding easier. I'll try to get the whole thing posted as well.
