Sunday Night 10pm News Open
Aside from reporting, shooting, writing and editing my own stories -- I also create the Sunday night 10pm news open. What does that entail? Well, mostly writing and editing it. I use Photoshop, Edius and a hand full of other programs to create it. My idea for the open came from the old 1998 World News with Peter Jennings Open -- showing producers, reporters, anchors and other staffers working in the newsroom. Then, I highlighted each Reporter's story and made sure to show them in the tease. The opens are no longer than 32 seconds.

Within a 24 hour period we dealt with tornadoes, hail and intense rain. For our 4pm newscast, I produced a high impact news open using graphics, video, audio, music and natural sound.

I built this open rather quickly. I used a series of news clips, audio and 'intense' music to create it. I kept it tight and quick.
