So I did.
Angi and I had a 9 a.m. shoot at McNellie’s Pub, which just opened a few days ago. It’s in the Midtown part of Oklahoma City, just north of downtown at NW 10 and Walker. It’s in the old Plaza Court building where Veazey’s drug store used to be back in the day.
The official name of the establishment is James E. McNellie’s Public House. The owner, Elliott Nelson, spent a few months in Ireland, decided he liked their pubs, so he opened one in Tulsa called McNellie’s Pub – a play on his last name. It went well, so now he’s trying one in our backyard.
We shot two videos, a typical “DnA” video where we talk with someone about their establishment. And Angi interviewed the head chef, Steven, in the kitchen as he whipped up some really good pasta.
Pretty good morning I’d say – surrounded by 350 beers and good food.
Angi and Kyle spoke with local film makers and fans at the deadCENTER Film Festival’s opening night Wednesday.
I had wedding stuff to attend to. A man and his finance have to make sure the DJ is on the same page, you know.
Ok, back to downtown OKC. Eight locations are hosting over 100 films, independent film-style. Check it out.
One of The Oklahoman’s business reporters, Don Mecoy, approached me with a video idea last week. He and his fellow reporters from the Biz desk were working on alternate methods of getting to work stories. With gas prices high, people have options: bike, bus, walk (ok, maybe not walk) and other stuff.
David Jones and Kyle Roberts shot Mecoy as he rode to work, about 10 miles. Stafford took a hand held camera on the bus as he rode from Edmond to downtown – past The Oklahoman’s office – to catch the right ride to the office.
Kyle edited together a classic piece. Mecoy and Stafford were great sports and good to work with. It’s not your routine gas price package.
Ryan Aber from The Oklahoman and I have been doing the High School Huddle show during the football season in 2007. Now we have reached the end of the season. So we coordinated a final High School Huddle for 2007 with The Oklahoman’s All-State Football teams.
The sports staff called in all of the players and the coach of the year for photos, interviews and quick video interviews.
Below is the intro, and here is the page we built for the player interviews. Kyle Roberts did an excellent job with the graphics and editing of the videos.
Angi Bruss and I took a trip to Guthrie for another Centennial event, the Native American Sunset Ceremony. Shot and edited by Kyle Roberts.
It was soooo cold.
Angi and I covered the Oklahoma Centennial Parade on Sunday. We worked with Kyle Roberts, who shot and edited the following video.
We did a live shot with Brent Skarky on OklaTravelNet.com for their live Webcast before the parade.
We also packaged something for their morning show, which airs weekend mornings at 10.
