Nothing New to Report

29 Sep

Alright, we know, we know. We haven’t been blogging neeeeaaaaarrrrlly as much as we should. In our defense, we have been crazy busy with school. We also wanted to have some video to post, but our projects are still in progress, so we have to find something else to talk about in the meantime.

On that note, here’s an update on what’s going on with us lately:
We’re working on a project called “video postcards,” which Shannon mentioned in her post Friday Night Lights. We already screened a rough draft of them in class and we have to continue shooting and editing before our final cut is due on October 19th. As you saw in the previous post, I’m covering high school football. Shannon is covering the Coconut Grove Farmer’s Market, which is filled with characters and has some fantastic foods to offer. Here’s a couple pics from her first day of shooting:

Yum.

I’m not kidding when I say there are characters there either. I somehow got sucked in to talking to this crazy drummer guy who kept yelling at the locals when they interrupted him and knelt down to drum on the sidewalk. While holding his drumsticks upside down. Good thing I had Shannon’s heavy tripod there to protect me…

In addition to the video postcards, we also just started work on some multimedia projects for Special Olympics of Miami-Dade County. We have a list of topics to choose from and we have 2 weeks to shoot, edit and put together a final piece that is worthy of being used on the Special Olympics site. (Yikes.) So you can expect to see some more of our work in about 2 weeks! Aren’t you excited?

We’re also working on several web projects but we don’t have anything cool enough to show you yet in that department. Shannon and I can often be found in different rooms in the house grumbling about various aspects of html and css or asking each other why the heck our sites look so weird in Firefox. THRILLING STUFF, i know.

So anyways, just bear with us. We’ll try to fabricate some interesting events soon, we promise.

    I’m convinced. You ARE busy. I don’t expect each and every posting to be exciting and brilliant….we just want to know what you’re doing and I see, you are doing a LOT. Keep up the good work. Can’t wait to see more of it…and to see you.
