DONELSON, Tenn– One week after flying into Nashville International Airport from the AEJMC Conference, I’m demonstrating the in’s and out’s of videography on a real-world assignment here in a suburb east town.
We had an 8:30 a.m. start in an area that’s become somewhat familiar — Donelson, a town not far from the airport. Our assignment was the interview Mary Moran, who heads the Nashville Irish Step Dancers (NISD), a group she founded 20 years ago.
The “our” is the story refer to the videographer Elizabeth Varin from Inland Valley Press and I. Varin formerly worked as a videographer. Now she’s full-time as a reporter.
She didn’t even reveal to me that she was a videographer until AFTER we were headed back from our assignment. That forced me to try and fail in some things on our assignment.
We took two cameras so that I could chronicle the videographic experience for sharing later in my class. I even managed to do two stand-ups. But at this moment, I don’t know how they came out.
So far, Boot Camp, Day 4 is keeping me very busy.
