About Ivan

Ivan, covered in snowHello. My name is Ivan Kowalenko, and I am a Director/Producer/Editor with a background in camera operation, graphics editing, and a keen eye towards aesthetics.

I served on the Rowan Television Network‘s technical manager and web chair. As technical manager, I maintained and repaired all of the station’s equipment, maintaining the editing computers and the linear editor, and for purchasing new equipment. This included managing a network-based storage system, and constructing a portable studio system built around a Tricaster. As web chair, I maintained the website and kept information up to date. I also kept podcasts up to date, started RTN’s Twitter presence, and started RTN’s first live streamed events, including the Rowan Relief Telethon and the 2010 SGA Meet The Candidates.

In Spring 2010, I served as the director of the 37-minute documentary Bucket Flush. The documentary followed a Philadelphia DIY-Punk band. The documentary was shot entirely in the field, following the band on tour, from Philadelphia to Georgia.

If you’d like to keep up with me, check out my other presences as linked on the right side of the page. Since no one service can do everything, not everything I do appears in every service, though the easiest places to keep up with everything is either via Twitter, and I’m blogging on Posterous. If you want to view everything (except Twitter, because that floods the feed too easily) in one place, check out my Tumblr. You can also find my resumé here if you are interested.

Feel free to contact me via e-mail, via Twitter or you can leave me a voicemail and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
