MetroWest Daily News reporter Danielle Ameden did exactly as she was trained when it come to shooting video.
WHAT SHE DID: She went to a local fall fesitval in Natick, Mass., and did her usual reporting for her story. She kept her eyes open for a good target for a video - and found one in the kid's pie-eating contest.
THE TAKEAWAY: Our video training calls for reporters to shoot video as part of their normal workflow - to keep their eyes out for a good target for video as they go about their normal reporting duties. This time of year is ripe with great opportunities for video as fall festivals abound, with pie-eating contests, hay rides, face painting and pumpking picking going on all over the place. A good rule of thumb: if it moves, it'll probably make good video.
