We did something a little different with Ed Kelley’s Oklahoma Matters today.
First, we used the segment to promote The Oklahoman’s football section. It hits newsstands and driveways Sunday.
During the segment, we used video from Nate Billings’ Oklahoma Focus segment from last week. Nate, one of The Oklahoman’s photographers, described what equipment he used, and why, for the black and white photos used in the football section.
Check out the result, pretty cool. Also note the lower third animation used to introduce Ed. Credit to Tanner Herriott for the editing.
You gotta love it when you get lucky.
Like when you hit every light green on the way to work. Or when your co-worker stumbles. And it’s caught on tape.
We tape a segment each week called DnA. It stands for Dave N Angi. Every Tuesday or Wednesday we send Angi out to talk with Oklahomans about various topics. This week, we were at Remington Park shooting a promo video for the upcoming Oklahoma Derby (Oct. 21). While there, Angi spoke with people inside the casino. Kyle edited the piece with some classic Vegas-style music.
Once we have footage, we tape a Dave-with-Angi segment in the studios, usually on Thursdays and the video is posted late Thursday or Friday morning.
If you haven’t seen our studio, it’s like a closet. Pretty small. We’ve all tripped, stumbled or fallen in that studio over cables or light stands.
Be sure to watch this video until the end for Angi’s dramatic exit. We are fortunate to work with good sports around here!
The Oklahoman provided NewsOK.com with some breaking news you can use this afternoon. OU names its starting QB for the upcoming season.
Sam Bradford. No surprise really.
All people need is the short and sweet, not the 15 minute, 2 gb, cinematic epic.
We’ll save that for tomorrow.
Today, Kyle, Tanner and I drove up to UCO. A prelim to next week’s big Edlam launch. Always good to have the pre-meet to confirm what should happen.
The guys and I then went into the bleachers to shoot an intro for the upcoming site. UCO Bronchos (note the ‘h’) football players were slaving away, pacing themselves through a mid-afternoon practice. Once we had our shot, we packed gear and headed south.
To a crime scene. This is for an upcoming Cold Case package. Coming to an Oklahoman (Sunday edition) near you. Or your favorite Web site. We shot next to a electric power substation in the 90 degree heat. Gotta love wearing a sports coat. And make up for that matter.
About the sports coat.
