Vimeo - Madison Community Views additional footage and some interviews
"Education is the only reason I'm standing on this stage."
A friend of mind and I had the great opportunity to cover President Obama's visit to Madison, October 4th, 2012 thanks to WORT 89.9 FM, our local community radio station. We collected interviews the day before and on the morning of the event and after the event. We discussed how we would deal with the amount of coverage we had but the necessity to produce something quickly. Quickly is defined as the 12 hours after the event concluded.
We decided to try and encapsulate the excitement of the event that so many people were feeling. We also had interviews that present the interest and a gamut of points of view. There was simply no way to put it altogether in the 12 hours.
So we hope you will wait a little bit longer and look at a more complete version that includes the points of view we tried to uncover and more of the event itself. We made one mistake in titling due the lateness of the hour, see if you notice.
