A little back ground with me.  I just got fired from working as the Digital Video Systems administrator at the School of Visual Arts in their Computer Art, Computer Animation and Visual Effects department   I am an expert when it comes to Final Cut and HDSLR systems.  I have networking experience with windows and Mac servers.  So I can do anything from supervising and coordinating your post workflows and going out in the field and shooting with my 5D. 

As for my hardware on hand, I have a complete lighting kit, camera, lenses, shotgun mic GBs of cards, and more stuff than I can list.  I have my own Mac Pro and software and storage. 

I have a lot of contacts with unemployed college students who spent an insane amount of money on education and are not even working. So, I can possibly get more volunteers with motion graphic and animation experience.   No promises, but it could happen.  

What I want to do is bring my life experience and help in any way fashionable.  It sounds like you have so much footage you can't review alan of it.  Not to mention the transcoding which is computer intensive and creates massive HD files.  Hard to store everything and move it across networks.  I am a solutions oriented person and can take a step back and look at the bigger picture for solutions that meet the needs of the organization.  

I have a lot of guerilla production experience which can lend to your cause and small budget. 

Let me know if you guys are interested in me coming by.

Right now everyone I know is in the same position. Exhausted, editing, working and we are all taking the time out to meet on Wed. in order to coordinate our activities for Thursday. We don't have a coordinated plan for the 17th yet. At this point we are compiling and editing video from the past 48 hours in order to prosecute. We are VERY understaffed. Maybe next week I can get someone to you. I will ask a few people tonight. What were you looking to do?
