Very interesting, Andrew, thanks for posting! I totally agree that after you have let video footage "ripen up" on your hard drive for a month or more, it is very difficult to convert/edit/upload it as you are emotionally no longer invested in the footage. That is a very valuable point that probably explains why we have so many more photos of Wiki meetups than video footage of Wiki meetups on Commons (let alone all the other stuff that video footage could be used for). Adding the link as the video didn't include it:

It's suboptimal, but here's a video recording I took of our Wikimania 2015 session on Video Production tools (very meta).

It's an example of what you can do on the run with one camcorder, setup close the loudspeaker.

Interestingly, the video recording was processed by the video tool Manuel Schneider and I presented on (double meta!) and side loaded to Internet Archive.

I have about 5-7 other sessions recorded and will try to record more today.

We may have an opportunity to try some of these tactics at a smaller scale at Wikiconference USA later this year. We have few true video cameras among the US affiliates AFAIK but perhaps WMDC, WMF and/ or WEF could rent a few for the occasion.
