This one’s just silly.
Here’s my first attempt at recording a video to send to an online friend. This one was for Oliver Todd-Hunter.
Shortly after I got my D7000, I made a couple silly Herald office videos. This one was inspired by @Maxative bringing up the concept of the crisp butty, apparently a sandwich eaten in the UK.
Oct. 20, 2010, the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s LGBT Campus Center hosted a vigil to recognize the recent suicides that seemed to be becoming more frequent. In the cold wind after dark, it was tough to film, especially with frozen fingers and shaking hands. I wish I had my Nikon D7000 at that point… anyway, this is what I came up with.
Here’s a clip of my brother Tristan explaining his weight problem and what the family is like.
Tuesday, Nov. 2, 2010, the midterm election. I went to Pewaukee to witness Scott Walker become the new governor of Wisconsin, thank God and promise to kill the train project.
I went to Milwaukee Oct. 8, 2010, to film the first senatorial debate between the Wisconsin candidates. I wasn’t allowed to film during the debate, though, but I got some interviews afterward.
Here’s a short compilation from an Oct. 5, 2010, panel discussion on the origins of the terms coastie and sconnie.
Sept. 28, 2010, President Obama made a major campaign stop at the UW campus. I was the designated videographer for The Badger Herald. What an interesting day!
Probably the most fascinating person and powerful speech I’ve covered was Feb. 2, 2010. That day Ayaan Hirsi Ali spoke at the UW campus for the university’s Distinguished Lecture Series. Reporter Kyle Mianulli and I had the honor of interviewing Ms. Ali prior to her speech.
Her speech and responses to audience questions were extremely interesting and provocative, and everyone should consider her ideas.
Dec. 5, 2009, I covered an equality march down State Street toward the Wisconsin Capitol.
A couple of weeks into the fall 2009 semester, I made a video about a study abroad fair and interviewed some students about their experiences and directors about study abroad programs.
My favorite Madison festival is definitely Taste of Madison, where many dozens of food vendors set up around the capitol to serve cheap food all weekend. It’s a great festival! For the Herald, I teamed up with Allie Demet to make a feature about the festival where we sampled some of the food.
One of the slightly more involved videos I did for the paper was my series on bicycle ticketing in Madison. Here’s the main video.
This video’s not very technically impressive, but oh, the memories! Angela’s Fourth of July 2009 celebration, aka the lives of gays in Madison.
