Sommerloch

July 30, 2010

This is one of my favorite German words, indicating the general slowdown in economic and news activity during the vacation months. Clearly, I am sitting smack in the middle of the “summer hole,” not having posted since June. Between the end of the semester here and a fab vacation to France, blogging has taken a back seat.

To fill the hole, here are some links to student video projects from my course last semester on video production for libraries by librarians. There’s a playlist with all eight videos, and here’s a small sample:

Martin will doch nur lesen = Martin just wants to read

The variety of video techniques and storytelling lines used in these projects amazed me, with each group coming up with something that really surprised me.

    I came across your page while searching for genealogical information on my father’s family (my maiden name is Somerlock, although great-grandpa spelled it “Sommerlock”). It seems rather obvious to me that my family came from Sommerloch, Germany 🙂 By the way, Google translates the name as “silly season.”

      That’s a fabulous translation for a machine.
