North End Students – EIV News, Fall 2010

This was a reporter package I did in the fall about the growing tensions in the North End between longtime residents and the influx of students moving into that area. It ran on EIV News at 9 on November 17, 2010, a newscast that garnered EIV News at 9 the MA/RI Associated Press award for Best College Newscast (again).

Here is the piece:

Challenges I faced: Finding good b-roll. The cameras we have basically don’t work at night (when all the relevant parties happen), plus there’s the safety issue (if we tried to bring a camera in or near the parties, some drunk/angry partier could have targeted us – and since we’d heard stories about heated confrontations, we weren’t going to chance it). Plus, North End people don’t really like you shooting there – we definitely got some weird looks. So the visuals were a bit challenging.

Disclaimer: This wasn’t done on my own – I did this piece with my classmate Katie Kenny.
