Afghanistan - The First Multimedia War

John D McHugh has just returned from Afghanistan (again). But this trip was different. McHugh explains “this was the first time that I was using the same camera to shoot my stills, my video, and record all my audio,” the camera, of course, was the EOS 5D Mark II.

“I have often carried more gear, more weight, on patrols than the soldiers I am reporting on,” says McHugh, “because I work in multimedia. I would have a couple of stills cameras around my neck, a video camera in one hand or on my shoulder, and an audio recorder in my other hand, or taped onto my helmet.” McHugh will show a selection of stills, video, and audio slideshows that he produced in February 2010 in Afghanistan, using only the EOS 5D Mark II. He will also talk about the benefits and challenges of using a single camera for all his work, he will share his thoughts on why he believes multimedia offers so many exciting possibilities to all photographers, not just photojournalists.

Byron will be giving an Aperture 3 demo to show how photographers can use the new Slideshow tool with pictures and video as a storyboarding tool, or to create simple narratives using high quality imagery and video, all on Canon cameras of course, and Final Cut Studio Demo to show how you can take your projects to the next level.
