A few weeks ago I interviewed Steve Lackmeyer about the 2009 business storylines of downtown OKC. We conducted the interview on top of a downtown parking garage with the streetscape canyon behind us. Throughout the interview, Steve drifted away from me. We started the interview in one parking space and ended in another. In fact, you can watch Steve get his gangsta lean away from me in the video below.
Just kidding around here. This year we launched the video component to OKC Central. Steve has taken on his weekly video segment with seriousness, something I appreciate. He does a great job finding interesting interviews with the top movers and shakers around town.
Somewhat fun fact: Mike Koehler appeared out of nowhere (actually the nearby elevator) by the end of the interview. He was parked just behind David Jones who was shooting this segment.
Steve talked about his favorite subject – Oklahoma City. Tanner had some coffee. A lot of coffee. Actually it was hot chocolate from Java Dave’s. Details…
This idea for OKC Central was we would drive around downtown and Bricktown and discuss upcoming changes to streets, streetscapes and parking. We used a Vado HD to capture the video with audio running through a Zoom. Tanner edited the piece together and added some sweet photos throughout as illustration.
Steve does a great job of explaining details upcoming, from one-way streets to the various lamp posts.
I check my rear view mirrors a lot. And side mirror. And oncoming and passing traffic.
Tanner drinks a lot of hot chocolate.
It’s how we do video, people.
Or a Sonic commercial.
