VIDEO: Crowdsourcing the 2018 W.Va. Teacher Strike : PART 1
NOTES: I shot a video of the  massive 2018 W.Va. Teacher’s Strike on its eighth day in late March 2018. I awoke the ninth day feeling out of sorts and didn’t get to work until noon. That, of course, was the day the strike was settled to much jubilation and national coverage. Drat! Blaspheme! Curses! But….. wait! There were thousands of cameras there, if mine was not. Why not ask readers for their (literal) view of the strike? Facebook and newspaper solicitations resulted in a torrent of submissions: almost 500 photographs and videos. I lined up a green-screen studio shoot , courtesy of the EDC co-working site in Charleston, interviewed a key reporter covering the strike and wove in reader submissions and staff photography and video. Here’s the result.
NUMBERS: This video got more than 22,000 views on Facebook and was shared widely nationally, especially as teacher strikes took hold in other states such as Oklahoma and Kentucky.

VIDEO: A “100 Seconds” installment that shows how to put up a Christmas tree in 100 seconds flat.
NOTES: Part of the mission of the “100 Seconds” video series is to showcase videos shot using only smartphones to showcase  “lo-fi media” capabilities. (Not that smartphones are all that lo-fi, these days, as they pack more computing power than the NASA computer that landed Neil Armstrong on the moon.)

 

VIDEO: Bill gets ready for stand-up
NOTES: Each month, Bill Lynch tries something new for his “One Month at a Time” series for the Charleston Gazette-Mail.  For June 2017, he was schooling (and steeling) himself for a 5-minute stand-up comedy routine. Go for the goat joke, a colleague suggests.
