How they do video at washingtonpost.com

Tom Kennedy, managing editor for multimedia at washingtonpost.com, answered 10 questions from Terry Heaton this week.

We use primarily Canon GL2’s and Sony PD-150’s and edit our video on Mac laptops, using Final Cut Pro (for field edits), Mac desktop units, and/or on PC desktop units using Adobe Premiere.

… a lot of the narrative structure comes from capturing real moments unfolding before the camera. Narration/titling may be used to impart information but because the video will often be seen in combination with text stories as a single experience, a lot of the weight of presenting “facts” may be borne by accompanying text, freeing the video to focus on character exposition and contextual expression of the emotional truth of the story.

That’s only from Tom’s answer to Question 1 — there’s plenty more.
