I’m still pushing myself to edit more creatively for mobile and social. It’s challenging because the station doesn’t have a style guide or templates. I’m also using Grass Valley’s Edius, which isn’t built for this kind of thing. And these stories get done in between breaking news, VOSOTs and cutting “social video.” Basically, I’m making it up […]
