Free Lolita - CBS Seattle
My first assignment for KIRO 7 - CBS in Seattle, covering the 12th annual Ways of Whales Conference on Whidbey Island. Set the camera up on the tripod and ... the sensor crapped out. No picture.
Panicked? Uh, yes, but managed to borrow an SLR camera from one of the scientists, an SD card from a local photographer, shoot for about ten minutes, rush to the ferry boat, drive like hell to Seattle, arrive at the station at 4:15-PM and somehow have the piece edited and ready for air by 5 o'clock. Hardly the best video I have ever shot... definitely one of the best saves.
Now, if we can only figure out how to save the endangered orcas.
