I was just a normal print journalist when curiosity got the best of me.
To supplement a story I was working on, I grabbed a video recorder to make a short video to go with it.
Fearing it was going to be terrible, I never even told my editors I was doing it. But I knew there was going to be excellent visuals at the event (an American Cancer Society Relay for Life).
I had no idea what I was doing.
My quick little video ballooned to over 4 minutes, the audio wasn't very good, the editing was choppy and my camera work was less than steady. Below is the final product (be kind).
