Multiple Locations Make For A Better Story

Take a look at this piece.

It was reported, shot, edited and produced by Katy Solt, and MMJ who took the 5-day Bootcamp last week.

It's a great story about where video as a business is going (note to all you video makers), but it's also a great demonstratoin of shooting at multiple locations with multiple characters for the same story.

She coudl have stopped with the couple running their exercise video business from home, that was interesting enough, but because she works alone as an MMJ (and shoot a 3:1 ratio) she was able to get over to the home of a subscriber to the video channel and get 'the other side of the story'.

They intercut nicely and give another dimension to the piece.

Well done!  

And a great insight into where the whole business of TV is probably headed.

The old news mantra — if it bleeds, it leads has been replaced by if it’s gross, adios.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.
