Nate Lubetsky: 5 Qs w/ VCAM Staff
Notice those beautiful thumbnails of all our videos?
Those thumbnails are made by Nate Lubetsky! Every Thursday you'll see the newest batch of locally-made content appear on vermontcam.org thanks to him! Get to know Nate with these 5 Qs:
1. If there were a movie about your life, who would play you?
Jesse Eisenberg. More nerdy and socially awkward Zombieland Jesse Eisenberg, less sociopathic The Social Network Jesse Eisenberg.
2. What is your fav piece of VCAM tech gear & why?
Definitely the TriCaster, the giant computer and switcher in the control room. It’s amazing what you’re able to do with it once you learn its intricacies. Custom backgrounds, titles, animations, and a fleet of video inputs for any show you can think up. Wanna hook up a PS4 to capture gameplay? You can! So many options!
3. What is the funniest thing that’s happened to you recently?
I absolutely destroyed a piñata with a wooden samurai sword and a bunch of twentysomethings scrambled like children to get as much of the candy that fell as they could.
4. Tell us something we might not know (a factoid that you have retained for no particular reason).
Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho was the first American film to show a toilet being flushed.
5. If you had to put your life bio into one run-on sentence, what would you say?
Living most of my life in New Jersey, I knew that Vermont was the perfect change of scenery so I chose to move to Burlington and attend Champlain College to study Management of Creative Media with a Specialization in Game Production Management which is a fancy way of saying that I was studying to become a game producer, but after creating a game-based show at VCAM in 2013, I fell in love with video production as well and wanted to learn as much as I could and impart that knowledge in a meaningful way, so I took the job as Production Technician here at VCAM in 2016 with the added responsibility for all non-government related content for the website and have been doing it for a year now which is exciting because I’ll be graduating exactly a week from now at the time of writing!
As someone who cares way too much about grammar, that sentence physically hurt me to write.
