…….. All I am missing is the print piece (funny that this is not yet done, especially because I am a print student), which will then conclude all the components I need to finish my multi-media journalism piece on Anthony Pisano – the grandfather of the east village – for my iBeat Reporting class! It has been a long time coming – five long weeks of work, with the last two of which were mainly spent glued to a corner computer in Arthur L. Carter’s Institute for journalism at NYU. Most nights were long, some of which never ended and our dedicated Professor, Adrian Mihai spent those nights right by our sides, helping guide his students through the challenges of capturing film, editing sequences, and producing dynamic multi-media stories.

Please tune in on Thursday night, June 17th @ 8PM to watch my Anthony Pisano story and many other East Village focused pieces from my 14 other talented classmates!

Here is a teaser for my piece:

Anthony Pisano says: "It's Time on 7th"......

Then, here is a still taken right from my iPhone from Final cut express – it is the big “drama moment” in my video piece:

The drama: "Why do you do it?"

And yet another to whet you appetite for learning more about Pisano’s store front apartment:

102 E. 7th Street in b/w 1st Ave and Ave A.

For more on Pisano and other New York Characters tune in and watch!: http://livestream.com/ibeatreporting

And…Follow our class Facebook page! AND…our class website where you will see a great teaser for our show!!

It’s gonna big great and really worth your time! I’m telling you this, not only because I am one of the producers of the show, but because I am a very proud member of this team and am humbled by the talent and hard work that we have all put into the process.

See you all Thursday at 8PM!!

Do you all know what this means?!!

Hello All –

As the caption above begs…. Do you know what this picture means?!! It means I am done! I am FINALLY done! You are all looking at the end of my timeline in my finished video piece on Anthony Pisano – the Grandfather of the East Village – for my iBeat Reporting class in the editing program Final Cut Express!

I never thought I would see the light at the end of the tunnel, but suddenly last night at around 10:45pm, after a slew of sleepless nights spent with fellow classmates in Newsroom 655 at NYU’s Arthur L. Carter Institute for Journalism and our dedicated professor Adrian Mihai, I finally finished my piece.

Of course, knowing me, it is too long. At the moment it is running at 7 min 20, which is about a 1 min 20 over my taste. It will have to be cut down for the web, but cutting something out from a article/piece/video, is like “killing my baby” – this a common Newsroom term used to describe the pain journalists feel when they find themselves needing to scrap a story or edit something out of it because of time constraints.

This was the first stage of compiling my “script”:

Block 1, Block 2, Block 3....4.....5...... It just goes on!

The class is hard at work and we have a few stragglers from the night before:

Please! All tune into the webcast on Thursday, June 17th, 2010! Here is the link again:
