Telling the big story with video

The biggest story of the year for my newspaper so far (OK, I know it’s still early, but still …) is the conviction and subsequent resignation of the county executive, John R. Leopold.

The afternoon that the verdict came down, several reporters were called in to help our lead county politics reporter who had been covering the trial.

I ended up missing an annual summit where environmental advocates talk about their top issues for the annual state General Assembly session.

I helped get quotes from people commenting the verdict and at one point, sat on a curb outside the courthouse and patched together a quick reaction story on my laptop.

But one of my favorite parts was putting together some short videos to help tell the story.

The first one features iPhone footage from one of my fellow reporters that I edited together. The other three were shot with my Nikon D7000.
