Multi- Tasking

Many of you have heard me harping about multi-tasking in the new world of media. I drilled it in to my students at Hofstra, I champion it in my newsroom, and I try to practice it myself.

I’m also a big fan of cheaper, compact equipment that delivers broadcast-quality work and makes it easier for one person to do it all.

I recently put my money where my mouth is, and started producing a series for our station using local Houston bloggers to put together video essays about cool stuff around town.

I produced and shot these with my Canon T2i DSLR, and a Samson wireless mic designed for DSLRs. Total cost for my setup – less than $1,000.

Truth in¬†advertising: I did have one of the editors at the station edit the story – I still don’t have the editing down with the equipment here, but hope to at some point.

We aired the first story last Friday. Click on the link to watch it.
