April 23, 1986 Kathy Engle vanished from Shepherd Mall in Okalhoma City. Her murder has never been solved.
The Cold Case series is my favorite of all the videos we shoot at OPUBCO. The Oklahoman’s Ken Raymond writes the stories for the print side. Then he goes several steps further by working with the video crew to set up interviews, provide sources and lead interviews. Paige Dillard writes for video and picks out the video and sound bites. Tanner Herriott shoots and edits the video.
Det. Kyle Eastridge from the OKC PD has been tremendously helpful and willing to go on camera for this series. Having that level of insight and expertise on these cases lends to its credibility. And it shows the eagerness of the police to solve these crimes.
Working with Ken is always good, here’s why: he know his material, it’s always a solid story and he’s willing to help make the overall product the best it can be.
I wish we had more time to give this series more attention. The level of effort for these is more than most anything else we do because we usually shoot, write and produce these over a 2 week period instead of just a daily turn.
Another video from Paige Dillard and Tanner Herriott. Great content, footage, audio, video… really good example of long form video.
Paige Dillard and Tanner Herriott teamed up on this fascinating interview with Portwood Williams Sr.
We shot the video for Black History month. Portwood participated with Clara Luper in the sit-in at Katz in Oklahoma City.
Check him out. He’s in his 90′s, but clearly retains that fire, that spirit. The ending is powerful as he talks about respect. Great stuff.
Paige edited, Tanner shot.
