I produced this first-person in a day without a light or an editor, as you can tell. I habitually overshoot. But this was one of the few times I remember wishing I had more tape, especially reaction shots. Every time I visit LACMA to see this art in action, I watch people’s faces and reshoot the package in my head.
Raquel Maria Dillon is a journalist with a decade of reporting and writing experience. She combines the speed and accuracy of the wire with public radio storytelling sensibilities and the fearlessness of a veteran visual journalist.
Her technical skills and writing voice have been honed by hourly deadlines and daily field reporting. She has an innate sense of what makes a good story, in video, words, sound, or whatever comes next.
This is a sample of her work.
