Escape from Meriden Plans

This weekend I'll be running about 88 miles from Meriden near Coventry to the Bowling Green pub in Chorlton, Manchester.  I'll be running from Friday night midnight to Saturday midnight. 

I'll be posting photos and update on the Facebook event page which you can check out or join here: https://www.facebook.com/events/367446673688518

You can track me on the Race Drone here: http://www.racedrone.net/event/escape-from-meriden

Every 10km I'll be adding my time, live as I run.  Look at the "Actual Time" column and compare it to the other columns to see how I'm doing and what my predicted finish time will be.

And finally a map of my route which you can also find on Viewranger here: http://my.viewranger.com/route/details/MTUyODI5NA==

Barclays Tech Innovation Challenge Live Stream and Video

I've recently been involved in a complex project for Barclays which involved live streaming the launch of the project to schools in Manchester, Cheshire and Lithuania.  Then I traveled around some of the high schools to record the teams progress.  Then finally I live streamed (securely behind a password as kids were involved) the finals day at Barclays, including the prize giving which was done by The Chancellor George Osborne MP.  

Here's a short 1 min video I made for Barclays covering the full project.

So as you can see not all the shots were shot in the same style as the video is a mix of footage from the live stream, footage shot on a DSLR, footage from the event filming cameras and even a couple of shots from my mobile phone.

The Gizwiz, The Pod Delusion and I

One of my New Years resolutions was to write and record for other peoples podcasts so back in January I contributed a bit about multidimensional travel systems to the Episode 219 of The Pod Delusion.  

Then this week I filmed a "My Favourite Gadget" segment which was featured on Twit.tv's Giz Wiz Show.  It went down very well with the hosts and the audience so here it is.  Jump to 32 mins in for my bit:
