Today I went to Mineola and attended a press conference discussing the issue of Domestic Violence in Nassau County. County Executive Ed Mangano was in attendance along with other town officials. The Nassau County Coalition Against Domestic Violence was also present with speakers as well as members of their organization who were victims of domestic violence. They spoke about their situations and how they support what the county is doing and will be involved in this for a long time.
On the technical side of things, my camera man had a problem when we first arrived so we had to go back to the office and get it checked out which was solved, we then got back to Mineola where we got into the press conference right as they began speaking. I took complete blame for the audio problems early as we didnt have it at the beginning. I had little to work with in picking sound bites and B-Roll but I believe I will have no problem finishing this piece and it will be on the air soon.
Every week I find im learning something and it will ultimately make my work better overall.
