First Day on the Job

Today is our first official day as the video developing interns for Dyn. Ryan and I were both on time today, that’s how we knew it was going to be a good day (note: “on time” to me qualifies as not being late by more than one hour).

Ryan and I met with Cory and Kyle this morning to talk about our goals for the next few months. We are aiming to demonstrate Dyn Inc.’s engineering excellence and authority with our videos, to create viral brand exposure, and to introduce the men and women that make up Dyn Inc. We are all really excited to see what we are going to come up with. We have a lot of funny and creative ideas in the beginning stages, and we are confident they are going to turn out terrific. We are both really happy with the way things are set up; Cory and Kyle tell us what they want, then they turn us loose and let us do our thing. This is going to make us all happy; this way nobody has to micromanage us, and Ryan and I can let our creativity move without any reins.

I told you about myself in my last post, so allow me to introduce Ryan. Ryan O’Hara is from East Hampstead, NH. Like me, he is a 21-year-old UNH senior. He’s a Marketing major. He likes long walks on the beach and curling up next to the fire with a nice romance novel and a glass of Shiraz. No, I’m kidding. Well who knows, he might. But seriously folks, he is to video and sound editing what Kenny G. is to the alto saxophone.

He could make Fran Drescher’s laugh sound good. You should see this guy; he makes videos with poor quality look crystal clear and bad noise sound like peanut butter mixed with velvet. Enough metaphors and analogies, I think I made my point.

We have met a lot of people in the office today and got to know a little about each other. We had hoped that the employees here would give us some ideas and feedback about what they think for our videos, and within the first hour we had some great ideas thrown at us. Ryan and I moved into our office and Cory was nice enough to take us out for lunch at a Manchester cafe. I had a Chicken Caesar Club panini, I give it an 8 out of 10 (if you get a chance, try the apple juice in the fridge at the office, PHENOMENAL).

On our first day we have been put on the fast track here. It’s almost 4 p.m. and Ryan and I have already been working on storyboards and hope to finish two of our videos by the end of the day.

We’re one for one. I’ll keep writing back. Later skaters.
