Three Oklahomans were reported dead yesterday, killed in the line of duty in Iraq.
Videos like this are a combination of the reporting and resources OPUBCO has available. The words from the reporters who have filed stories for NewsOK and The Oklahoman. The images come from the talented photographers at OPUBCO.
The videography of the studio comes from sitting down and discussing a quick set up.
This morning, I wrote a quick script, pulled some graphics using screen caps of The Oklahoman’s electronic edition, downloaded photos from the archives, created some full screen Photoshop graphics for the quotes, and downloaded the video Sarah Phipps shot this summer of the troops deployment. Tanner Herriott and I discussed the look for the set. Tanner set up the black curtain with blue uplighting. We brought in a soft box for the fill and overheads for a general key.
I used Final Cut Pro, as we do most of our videos, to put all of the elements together. This happened before, during and after three other shoots were being produced in our studios this morning: a commercial for The Oklahoman, voice-over for another commercial and an interview with the 42nd richest American, Harold Hamm from Oklahoma.
