This is the second year I work for http://p3.no/takk-for-alle-bidrag/, a charity event in Oslo consisting of 72 hours of live radio, with celebrity guests, auctions and great concerts. The event was streamed live on the web, sent on NRK3 during the night, and was of course presented on the web in the form of articles, photography and on demand video. My job was to record, edit and publish all the concerts, plus deliver video material to our other video editors (used on both web and tv). Ended up with over 3 TB of video files on disk, not counting backups. The event collected NOK 600000 which went to Flyktningehjelpen.

One of the things I like best about my job at NRK is the opportunities we get to work on a lot of different projects, like P3aksjonen. My «normal» job is usually very desk-bound, doing webdesign, web development and project management with my colleagues in Trondheim, so it’s great to get out and about a littlebit, and especially when it is for a good cause. Also got to learn more about «Programbanken» ang G3, the Omnibus-based tool for scheduling recordings and dubbing used at NRK, plus NRKs new on-demand publishing system «Guri».

Here are some of the concerts we sent:
