Meeting Dr. Van Stone at the Society for American Archaeology Meeting

Early this afternoon, photographer Jamal Jackson and I arrived in Memphis, TN from our drive from Dallas, TX.  We had some great conversations about how to approach video that’s going to be added to Dr. Mark Van Stones interactive book for the iPad on 2012: Science and Prophecy of the Ancient Maya.  From Jamal I learned the term of “intentional” interviews and video.  In other words, don’t do like this lead and get straight to the point.

Tonight at 9 p.m. I got a call from Dr. Van Stone who had just landed at Memphis International.  Not having actually met him in person, I jumped at the chance to take the 2012 Buick on loan to us from GM of Texas to the airport to pick him up and take him to the Memphis Marriott Downtown where the Society for American Archaeology is holding its annual meeting.

We are here in part to shoot a series of video clips for his upcoming book and to gain some great insight into the world of American archeaologists.  Already I’ve been awed at the intelligence of the people here.  And I am impressed with how friendly the people who I have met are.

There’s a video loading to YouTube that will be added to this post when it completes loading.  But the hotel we’re in has horrible upload speeds and so it’s going to take till the morning to do what should take 10 minutes at the most anywhere else on the planet.  For safety reasons, once we’re gone, I’ll say where we are so you will know if you ever need to stay in Memphis, to at least take this point into consideration.  We do have a nice clean room that’s not at the convention site and actually, about 1/4 of the price of a room there per night….

Okay, gotta get some rest.  Big day tomorrow.
