Our first video

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — I’m attending the Keystone Multimedia Workshop sponsored by the Pennsylvania Newspaper Association. The workshop was timed to coincide with the annual Pennsylvania Special Olympics competition at Penn State University, giving workshop participants dozens of story possibilities.

I shot and edited this video at the opening ceremonies for the games. As Catholic News Service uses more multimedia formats in the future, I’m sure I’ll look back at this story as poorly shot and edited, but it’s exciting for us to take our first steps in this new way of telling stories of faith.

    Lisa: Most people at the workshop had Macbooks and used Final Cut to edit. I was one of the few to bring a PC, so I used a demo version of Vegas Pro. Instructor said both programs have advantages and disadvantages. Vegas worked great for me.

    On the contrary, I think you’ll look back at this story and wonder how you did it so well 🙂
