CaptionMax recently hosted its annual Community Advisory Board meeting, where we gather with our board members (Ardis Bazyn, Joya Bromeland, B.J. LeJeune, Cathy Lyle, Joshua Miele, Michelle Rich, Jordan Richardson, and Timothy Smitley) to discuss all things related to media accessibility. Check out some photos of the day.
This year, we invited our board members to try their hands at video description. B.J. LeJeune (board member), Donna Horn (Vice President of Business Development), and Michelle Rich (board member) collaborate on writing a script with Jeremy Fisher (Staff Manager, Captioning and Video Description).
Once the scripts were completed, board members spent time in our recording booth bringing their descriptions to life. Jeremy Fisher sets up the mic for Joshua Miele (board member).
Emily Bell (Multimedia Manager and Project Director) and Jess Matelski (Multimedia Specialist) chat with Jordan Richardson (board member) while others are busy in the booth.
Discussions continue over lunch in the CaptionMax diner.
We close our meeting with a viewing of the clip described and voiced by our board members. They did a fabulous job!
Thanks to everyone for another fantastic meeting. We look forward to next year!
