You are often in the best position to record content that tells the story you want to tell. 
Select a few folks to record specific parts of the protest
1. Lots of cutaways - shots of the cars, signs etc. the visual images that tell the story.
2. Record someone who introduces the demonstration and provides commentary
3. Record any other speakers or additional commentary
 
To tell the story best, we need to hear from someone explaining the why, where, how, and what of your event or issue.
Why are you there, what are you asking or demanding, what do you hope to have happen, who are you talking to (your audience) and how can people get involved? How can people learn more?
 
Upload all of your video content here: https://www.dropbox.com/request/o8VKgeWoTCwplT9Zno8m

If you have multiple people recording at an event we can create a Unique folder for all your participants to upload content to.

Fill out the form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdID-HD1eqrtwYFohm7LxvLSVK6WiR2...
We will add edit the footage together, add titles, share the program with TV viewers around the state and archive it for the future!


3. Studio Production While The Studio is Closed

You can get your guest to meet virtually and record your own show. Below are some guidelines for using Zoom.

Using Zoom to Create your own Studio TV shows
Zoom is one system that allows for pretty good audio and video quality regardless of a user's home system or bandwidth

Invite your guests into the meeting early and make sure they are comfortable using Zoom.  Allow time to practice.

Lock the ‘meeting’ before starting

Make sure you are recording!

Create a clear start, Give yourself and your guests a clear countdown 

….5,4,3,2,1!

As the host, when you change the view from “Gallery View” to “Speaker View” it will change what shows up on the recording. 

Gallery View shows all guests                     Speaker View shows one guest 
Here is a very short video demonstration of views, added titles and screen sharing:  https://youtu.be/XewlkdiRhpg                                                                                                             

Both the host and the guest(s) can share their screen to show images, powerpoint graphics, webclips, videos etc.
Create a clear Ending. “That’s A Wrap or Thank You For Joining Me”

Upload your finished file and the form so we can title it for TV and online playback.

Some other suggestions:
Keep it short 10-20 minutes
Get to the ‘meat’ quickly
