Update #10

YouTube is blocked in China

2 comments

So I guess everyone in the world but me knew that. Gmail works, but pretty much every other means of broadcast I use is blocked except... Kickstarter!

The attached video is of Jiang Mianheng, he gave the first full-length talk at ThEC12. I think it is quite useful in that it summarizes the Chinese perspective on thorium (and nuclear in general).

It is not a great edit. And Kickstarter is hardly the ideal video host. But I wanted to fire off what-I-had now and I'll put these assets to better use down the road. (I can't really edit with my laptop... this is a hack job.)

The event was very interesting, I've only ever attended Thorium Energy Alliance events before so was good to get the more "international" perspective. Lots of folks I'd never had gotten to meet otherwise.

I've got all the lectures captured in full, and I think in very decent quality.

Was able to get some interviews. Not as many as I'd have liked... mostly due to me having just caught a crazy cough upon arrival and now that everything is done the cough is finally dissipating. Random, unfortunate and I'm sure entertaining when my voice suddenly changes in middle of doc to a hoarse whisper.

I'm only in Shanghai for a couple more days. Will see if I can visit Sanmen Nuclear Power Station today, even if I only amounts to b-roll.

Thanks for help backing this trip. I'll have a more complete update on what new video assets were collected when I'm back.

To simply find out what happened in general, I'd monitor Mark Halper posts as he's been hammering out copy about the event.

    Information enabling you to stay in-the-loop regarding TR2012 progress. If you funded the original TR2012 project I'm hoping you can cough up $1 so I consolidate project updates on this new Kickstarter project. If you funded the original project and you do not fund this one, DO NOT WORRY. I'll still post updates there pertaining to backer rewards. But for small updates I'd like to consolidate on a single project with (hopefully) more backers.

    Raw footage from Thorium Energy Conference 2012 in Shanghai. This will be mailed to you on a 3.5" naked SATA hard drive. (It will be your responsibility to own a SATA dock for the naked drive, which is a great thing to own anyway.) This footage will NOT be put in sync. To do so takes a long time, and locks you into Adobe Premiere to take advantage of the sync. I'll be happy to share my in-sync PPROJ file as it evolves over time but to use the footage yourself ASAP, you really need to sync what-you-need yourself. I'm hoping anyone looking to produce thorium related video coverage themselves can pitch in, and we all benefit from a good source of 1080P coverage.
