Today was typical yet nothing routine in the OPUBCO Studios. The local FBI director stopped by this afternoon for an interview with Bryan Painter. See Sunday’s editions.
We also taped segments for an upcoming Cold Case OKC story, next week’s DnA segment on, well, trash, and a few pieces for the advertising department to show to potential clients.
We don’t just shoot and edit video for the newsroom. We also facilitate video production for OPUBCO’s marketing and advertising departments. And that’s cool to me that we’re not just one dimensional. A lot of media balk at doing anything that isn’t “journalism.” But I doubt the public cares, and shooting video is shooting video. Writing is writing. It’s just done in different ways to accomplish different purposes. And I think video production is fun. For editorial or marketing or advertising purposes.
And isn’t it good to have fun with your work?
It’s Friday. Good time at the CARE event last time, will blog more about that later today. Here’s a quick look at headlines this morning:
