Hello Wikimedia Kenya,

So a week ago at Wikimania, my team's goal was to interview as many
Wikipedians as possible on video, and I can't believe it but we actually
did it. We recorded around 100 on-camera interviews from editors from all
over the world. Now we have to begin the post-production process. (It was
good to meet a few of you in person too).

I regret to say that since Wikimania, AGAIN my priorities have to shift
from coming to Kenya -- to editing this video. There is a lot of footage to
go through and only so much time to get it done correctly if it is going to
play by the fundraiser.

That said, I feel I owe the Kenyan chapter some kind of a favor for all
your patience. What I have is a Canon XA-10 professional
camcorder<http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/camcorders/professional_camcorders/xa10/>that
I won't be using while I'm editing the Wikimania interview footage. I
could loan it to the chapter for some time and let you decide how best to
use it. It's a very compact, high-quality camera that is very easy to learn
to use. It records on high-speed SD cards and can record for hours and
hours at a time. I would be happy to help with any questions you may have
about operating it or editing / manipulating footage from it. Please let me
know if the chapter could use a camera like this for some time, and I will
ship it immediately.

I'd like to thank you for all your patience with me, I don't want to
promise anything I can't deliver on - but I can say that I want to talk to
all of you and hope I can be of service soon. Also if there is anything
else I can do while I'm editing footage, please let me know.

Victor Grigas
