Martin Grey's First Video

The video you are watching above was shot, scripted, edited and produced by Martin Grey.

Martin Grey is the Head of Media and Public Affairs at Viridor, a recycling, renewable energy and waste management company in the UK. 

It was Martin's first video (second actually, his first was pretty good also!).  Martin was a participant at our 4-day intensive video training bootcamp in London last week.

Prior to the bootcamp, he had never shot video (let alone edited) in his life.  Also, as the head of Media and Public Affairs of one of Britain's largest companies (FTSE 250), he was used to hiriing 'professional crews' to produce all his company's video needs. 

I think that will probably change in the future.

I am showing you this to show you what is possible. All you need do (as I explain every time) is just do exactly what I tell you to do.

And this is but Martin's first second attempt.  As he goes forward, they are only going to get better. But even now, after 4 days, his is as good as most of the stuff you see on TV or online done by very high priced 'professionals'.

Bad News, Good News

The old news mantra — if it bleeds, it leads has been replaced by if it’s gross, adios. The prospect of a news-free electorate is terrifying.

The news business is in trouble. In the past decade, more than 2400 local newspapers have closed. NBC Nightly News gets 5 million viewers per night, in a nation of 340 million people, so most people are not watching. What are they watching? Netflix.

For most of human history, people lived in a world without news. The concept simply did not exist. The idea of news is really a 19th-century phenomenon, driven first by newspapers, and then by electronic media which brought us radio, then TV and now the web. Now, it seems, we are headed back to a world without news. Not because the technology is not there, but rather because, increasingly, people are no longer interested in news, at least in the way it is packaged now.
