Ignite Portland, A Documentary Short

Most of you probably know that I am one of the organizers for Ignite Portland, an event happening about every 4 months where we select people to present their burning ideas in 5 minutes using 20 slides that auto advance every 15 seconds. It’s an interesting format, and it’s a fun event to attend.

At this last Ignite Portland, Liz Grover started work on a short documentary that covers the history, the format and the phenomenon that is Ignite Portland. I was honored to participate in an interview where I talked about our experiences with Ignite Portland, and most of the interview appears in the documentary.

I encourage you to watch the Ignite Portland documentary. Liz did a great job of capturing the spirit of the event in just 8 minutes of video.

I also know that Liz is available for hire to work on other video projects if you need some video content for your latest project.

  • Hey, thanks so much for this blog entry. It’s a gift to have your support. Have a great end to your year.

  • Great clip on your Ignite series! I’m one of the organizers of the Ignite in DC and am always hearing great things about your series–it’s great to hear how you handle this (and how Legion of Tech formed around your various events). Happy New Year!

  • Jared,

    Thanks! It was so much fun to participate in the documentary, and we were so lucky that Liz decided to do it. Best of luck with your Ignite events in DC and have a great holiday season!
