Telling the Center’s stories: Ann Duerr and the HVTN

CDS Creative Services  recently shot and edited this video featuring one of the Center’s HIV/AIDS Vaccine Trials Network (HVTN) researchers, Ann Duerr.

The original version of the video was used by Ann this past summer as part of her address at a science seminar, and is now being featured on the Center’s YouTube Channel.


Dr. Lee Hartwell’s 2009 Amrita University Convocation Speech shot on the 5D

Center President and Director, Dr. Lee Hartwell, was invited to speak at this year’s Amrita University Convocation. Unfortunately, Dr. Hartwell was not able to make it all the way to India to participate in the event.  Instead, his office approached the CDS Creative Services team and asked if we could film Dr. Hartwell delivering his convocation speech for the graduates here in our studio, and then send the video to India to be shown to the students.

6th Annual JVH/Epson sponsored Digital Festival

Producing the largest JVH print to date

Producing the largest JVH print to date

Friday is the 6th Annual JVH/Epson Digital Print Festival event, hosted at Embassy Suites in Bellevue, WA.  Over 200 photographers will converge on the event, where they will be displaying photographs and sharing their digital creations and ideas.  All items on display will be voted on a peer-to-peer basis, and winners will be awarded a number of prizes, including laptops, printers, and other digital goodies.  Several speakers will be presenting on subjects ranging from color management, printing workflows, and marketing and communications techniques.  Key speaker this year will be Bambi Cantrell, a world renowned wedding and portrait photographer.  She will be sharing her insights and techniques gained over many years of experience.

This year I am entering what will likely be the largest print ever submitted to the event, a 360-degree panaroma measuring 33 ft x 4 ft in size.  For more details on the subject, visit my The Bainbridge Island Review’s article about the project.
