“Would you mind if I also film a couple bits with you?”
“Oh… I thought you did interviews for radio…?”
A typical response from people who find it odd that the reporter from Heart says she not only wants to interview you but also get you to say a few words for people on Twitter to watch and click on.
Video’s now being expected in all radio newsrooms and just taking a couple pics for the website or news twitter account isn’t enough. Luckily for me I’ve had a good training in how to use a camera and edit a decent package, so going out to film as well as do all the usual radio bits isn’t too much of shock to the system.
But, something new I’m having to get used to is filming almost everything from a device that I can fit in my backpacker instead of lugging around a hefty camera and tripod.
