Tonight we drove into downtown Brisbane to check out the night lights and found some rather unusual night life. All along the Kangaroo Point cliffs overlooking the cityscape and river were rock climbers. Imagine – rock climbing with a city view! This has been going on for years and anyone eight years or older is welcome to join in – for a price. I moseyed around shooting video, which I’ll post by tomorrow night.
Not getting much officially about videojournalism over here…I’ve contacted the photographers’ union and several other sources but to no avail as of today. In viewing the telly I see that the camera work is good but not fancy. They stick mostly with wide and medium shots. Nearly all of the news programs are understated. The morning shows tend to be a bit more animated with personalities…and honestly I like the way the evening news is presented. No giggles, no banter.
I’ll be heading home in seven days….and counting.
