STORY OF THE WEEK: 11/28/2012

Story Of The Week.

To find a good story, find a good character. Bill Middeke asked me to post one of my favorite stories and I picked a lady fan. I heard her before I saw her. In 2006 I was shooting a high school state championship football game up above and when I looked down she was waving banners in both hands, jumping up and down and screaming for her team. I went to ground level in the fourth quarter. I had a fan hand her the mic and she clipped it on. During action she forgot I was even there. Easy to shoot. Easy to edit. No one else did the story and I wouldn’t have found her if I wasn’t listening and looking for a character. To find a good story, find a good character.
