I know that Jay already has posted a sort of intro, but I would like to introduce myself formally... My name is Randy Mills and I live and work on the island of Maui. I have been working at the PEG access station here for the last two years and have been completely inundated by video these last couple of years, whereas before I was almost exclusively a film guy, both motion picture as well as still. I graduated from SFSU in 2002 with a B.A. in Cinema as well as a B.A. in Photojournalism. six long years and sixty thousand dollars later...I found a solid job on Maui and haven't looked back. I came across the motionshowing site via INDTV's blog and became immediately intrigued by what is happening. I want to be a part of it. We have tried some similar stuff on a local level here without much success, I think mostly because there is such a small number of us here, and also the majority of shooters here do stuff like corporate events and weddings and don't have a lot of time to play (or don't make time for it). We are still plugging away, however, and AIRLAB TV (Artist In Residence Laboratory) has been slowly but surely making its way to the web. About 4 months ago, we completed the first season on public access here on Maui, it was 13 long weeks of fresh programming. We did 9 original hours of television a week! If you've ever tried to do anything like this, you'd know it's next to impossible...but somehow we pulled it off and now have a huge library of stuff that we think is bigger than Maui. so that's where the web comes in. I look forward to learning how to "vlog" and want to participate as much as my time will allow. I'll be sendin you guys some cool stuff from the island...no worries, you'll just have to give me about a week to get one going. We're so busy at work right now prepping for the General Election, we do completely LIVE coverage of the elections, (local, state, and even national)...so it's gonna be a long night. I love production though, especially large scale, and look forward to it. Maybe I'll be able to vlog a clip of some of our coverage (some behind the scenes kine). Anyway, just wanted to introduce myself and what I'm about...hope you all got to see the intro video that Jay put the link up for...if not, it's at http://www.randomdevelopments.com/indtv/indtv.html...it's also on the video page of my website http://www.randomdevelopments.com with a whole gang of shorts I did while in college and some of my more recent stuff. Much Aloha, Randy Mills http://www.randomdevelopments.com
