23rd SLS Conference Video Show

Jim LaDue and Greg Stumpf have been asked to organize the 23rd AMS Severe Local Storms Conference storm video/photo evening shows this November in St. Louis. There is no guarantee that Jim or Greg will even be able to travel to the conference this year, so we are looking for 1 or 2 additional partners who are certain to attend the conference and are available Tuesday and Thursday to host the event in the event of our absence. Together, this team will be responsible for collecting video and slide submissions, organizing the show, and working with the AMS and the SLS Program Committee to secure audio-visual equipment for the show, a with one or more of the partners hosting the show.

We have decided to solicit input from anyone in the form of short 4 minute productions centering on a specific 2006 storm events. Each contributor can submit up to 3 of these productions (one production per event), for a maximum of 12 minutes of contribution per author. We encourage creativity in these contributions. Contributors can use this opportunity to show off their video editing, musical, and chase summarizing skills. These contributions are due to Jim and Greg no later than 15 August 2006. We will consider late contributions focusing on any noteworthy storm events, if they occur after this due date, with special permission.

If there is overwhelming response, productions chosen to be shown will be based on quality as well as an overall diversity of events and locations on the storms. We will then compile these submissions onto a DVD to be shown at the conference. If there is underwhelming response, we will fill out the program showing some or all of the chapters on the Storms of 2005 DVD since the last SLS conference pre-dates the 2005 events.

As in past SLS shows, there will also be room for several 5-10 minute slide shows as well as 5-10 minute “special” video events (e.g., Walt Lyons). If you are interested in presenting one of these, please submit your request no later than 15 August 2006.

Jim and Greg are not inclined to produce a Storms of 2006 DVD this year, to be shown and sold at the conference, due to the meager season (thus far), and also due to lack of time. We always hope that we’ve planted the seed and that the idea of a 100% to charity fundraiser from storm chasers to storm victims would grow and some other producers would nurture it. If anyone is interested in such an endeavor, let us know, and we can certainly provide consultation. Any of the videos collected for the SLS show can be candidates for input into such a production (if permission is granted from the contributors).

So far, we've only had three requests (two slide shows, one video). The deadline is 15 August. If our submissions are slim, Jim and I will probably end up just showing the "Storms of 2005" DVD. Please send your requests in!

The deadline for submissions is rapidly approaching - 15 August 2006. With the exception of a few "special video events" and slide show requests, we've had no other requests to submit video productions! We will be sending no other reminders on this event, and if we get no submissions, we'll go with our "backup plan".

Greg and Jim
