Videographer 101 rules to remember: (at least this is what Mitch Kazel taught me at the U of I)
1. Excessive quick panning, zooming and tilting does not give motion to still shots... it just makes people motionsick.
2. Your viewer hasn't seen what you are seeing... so hold shots longer so they can identify things -- like which of their favorite players are in the shots.
3. The reverse camera angle shot of the videographer worked OK in the Blair witch project, but we really want to see Alcatraz... I can see your face next to your byline in the N-G.
Just Kidding actually... nice job on catching some interesting stuff out there in Cali. And herb must have been white as a sheet on your crooked street drive...
