The Trials of a Videographer

One of the challenges facing us when we interview on the road is setting up studios in hotel rooms. Although we often shoot interviews against a black background, whenever possible (and room decor permits) we like to shoot using whatever’s available in the room. This usually involves moving lots of heavy furniture around, and sometimes making a few alterations. For those of you who enjoyed hearing about my ironing woes on our trip to Denver, I’ve got a new one: tassels. Whoever designed the drapes in this hotel room apparently adores little pastel-colored tassels, and I spent a ridiculous amount of time last night laboriously taping them back so they are not quite so visible…
