Puts things in perspective, doesn’t it?
Good storytelling and visuals. It’s what we strive for in our multimedia efforts on NewsOK.com: text, video, photos and documents. We attempt to gather as much material as possible to tell the story and relay information.
Tim Money shot the above footage. He accompanied Steve Lackmeyer on an exclusive tour inside, around, up, down and out of the Devon Energy Center earlier this month. Money shot extensive footage. I’ll put together more of it soon.
Ran downtown Monday evening to deliver a DVD to Good Egg Dining Group. We produce some of their multimedia campaigns. Saw the below skyline view from the AGE office on 5th Street. Snapped the pic via iPhone. Then drove down to Kerr to shoot the above video.
Also saw downtown business stringing up Christmas lights. It’s that time of year.
I interviewed Lackmeyer and Justin Tyler Moore about the project and its site RetroMetroOKC.org. Seems like a daunting process to me: organizing a local group of history enthusiasts and collecting people’s memories and tokens of the past.
It’s a great idea. The web site is cool. I admire these guys for their passion and expertise. Impressive.
