"It's an astounding menu of television and web programming, everything from heart tugging reality television, mini-documentaries and animated children's series, to fast breaking news and information. But this is no lineup for a national network. It's the variety of shows produced right here in New England by independent producers, work that is seen on local and cable outlets. Tonight, Chronicle takes you behind the scenes of some of the area's most intriguing homegrown programs."
The Chronicle team, Producer Jason Potts and videographer Bob Oliver, followed me for a day and got footage of me doing two projects.
Here's a video I shot of them when we first met at Boston's City Hall Plaza: Jason Potts from Chronicle says it IS all about me!. Videobloggers will think this is very funny because a joke we've shared over the years is how some people have the impression that videoblogging is all about the videoblogger and not the subject. So it was funny when Jason said that this story was all about me. ;-)
The first project they covered was me shooting video of Boston City Councillor John Tobin out side the ugliest building in the world, Boston's City Hall, where he talked about tearing it down.

The other was a shoot I did for Next New Networks, where I interviewed the Boston Band Freezepop.
