This is a live broadcast from “The Ibogaine Forum 2009” at Northeastern University, in Boston, Mass. Presidents Day Weekend (Sat., Feb. 14 to Mon., Feb. 16)
Our company, Wiggle Puppy Productions, covered the event (mostly out of pocket) for the live USTREAM.TV broadcast and the HD version we filmed for later release via DVD. We are requesting donations between $5-35 (or more) to enjoy and appreciate the taped event. If you donate $30 or more you are entitled to the DVD set which once edited (in about 2-3 months from the date of the conference) will include high-res versions of each presenters slides, photos, better audio, 2-3 angles edited together, plus many extras. We have donated our time, equipment, labor, etc. but we still need donations to cover all the costs from this production. We drove from Chicago and had hoped to be reimbursed for all of the expenses from travel, food, lodging, and most of all tapestock. Each camera costs $13 per hour to run and we planned to have 3 cameras with at least 2 cameras running at every talk documenting all the presentations. This footage will be edited and transferred to DVD for those who are interested in purchasing the DVD set (it will require several DVD's to cover all three days). If you donate under $30 for the live broadcast and wish to purchase the DVD set, we will deduct what you donated from the $30 cost of the DVD's or send you the DVD's at no additional cost if you pay/paid $30 or more already to watch the live broadcast. Donations can be made via PayPal at the email address firstname.lastname@example.org and are very much appreciated. That community support allows the word to spread and us to continue covering events like this for those of you who could not make it or to those who wish to package the information for others to get educated on Ibogaine’s potential.
Please keep in mind the stream had some issues at times because admittedly this was the first time we've ever streamed anything. In the beginning we depended on viewers to text us in real time so we could leave our HD cameras to correct the stream when audio would go down or the picture would freeze (we’d stop it and start it over – hence all the breaks on day 1 & 2). Luckily we continued filming with our 2 other HD cameras during these breaks and the HD version has the entire conference covered (all but a few moments that weren’t necessary). We were happy to get the streaming down pat by the third day. So as you can see the 3rd day is one continuous stream without any interruption! (We also didn’t break for lunch but luckily NycLabrets sent us Pizza from a distance and saved our lives – thanks NYCLabrets who is very Nyc indeed)! You’ll notice this third day has the best audio & picture and now that we perfected the live streaming skill we hope to utilize it for other live events we film!
Please see the schedule below (although it is not correct – many last minute changes were made on the days of the conference – we will try to update the schedule ASAP) or email us at email@example.com for more information.
Please keep in mind this is the first thing we have ever streamed. Video is our specialty but not streaming live. The camera used for the live feed is a tiny DV camera and not as great as the HDV cameras we're shooting with for the DVD's so please bare with the poor quality. It's not our MO to provide less than perfection!!! Wait for the DVD's if you want that.
