Cory was fun to hang out with. His art is original and elegant. I can’t wait to see where his work takes him. Fuhr’s speed skater is on display at the Richmond Oval (speed skating center) for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics.
So tonight I walked out of the Whistler Media House and The Fray was playing next to the medal courtyard.
Every day for the past 12 days we’ve been putting together a daily web newscast from Vancouver. It’s been quite a few late nights for me (3 a.m.) and even later for the person who edits the whole show together to be live on our site by 7 a.m. Eastern. We have two USA TODAY reporters anchoring the show. I’ve been contributing video story packages, video from press conferences, helping edit parts of the show, and trying to keep the highest level of quality possible. Now I didn’t come to USA TODAY to do more TV-style news work but this is pretty good given it’s mainly 3 people behind the scenes every night making it happen on a shoe-string budget. Check it out.
Who knew that a funny guy in green undies on a 10-foot unicycle juggling machetes could garner such a crowd–and inspire me to tell the story of the buskers. I stumbled upon this story while taking the bus to the press center a few nights ago. These street performers were a hoot and so much fun to hang out with and interview. I shot the whole story in about 75 minutes near Robson square in downtown Vancouver. Here is a direct link to my video.
Good times with Hannah Teeter. Many thanks to the talented Rhyne Piggot, a fellow video journalist at USA TODAY, for editing this package together for me! direct link
