KGTV’s Joe Little Shows How to Be a OMB

From: b-roll.net FORUM

You have to hand it to Joe Little.  His one-man-band (or “Digital Correspondent”) stories make it look easy – and strangely, a little fun. He’s mastered creative shooting and editing to the point that you can’t tell he’s doing it all himself.

His latest video is a “day in the life” story – shot written and edited in a day. Well done, Joe…

You can watch more of his work on his YouTube page.

OMB Tells His Secret to Creative Storytelling

From: Al Tompkins, Poynter.org

“A YouTube video of KGTV’s Joe Little has been making the rounds lately. Inside of one week, four people sent it to me. Little works as a one-man band. In other words, he shoots his own video, reports the story and edits it.”

Al Tompkins interviews Little to get some insight into his creative process… and explains the situations in which he’d love to have a photography with him.
