Up in the Air: Brickell Corner

A few weeks ago I took the Phantom 2 Vision + out for a little flight time with my fiance’s family. The sun was setting in Brickell and there were plenty of people going about their daily business. But it was a good time to catch Brickell as it generally is: big, beautiful and busy. We caught a great sunset shot at 00:50. It was the perfect time to film in the early evening. It was a bit...

Up in the Air: Brickell Key

Up in the Air: Brickell Key It was a great night for flying near Brickell Key in Miami, Florida. We had some friends in town from Tennessee along with my fiance’s parents – so we decided to break out the Phantom 2 Vision + Drone and get some good aerial video as the sun was setting. I’m still a bit rusty on the controls but am working to smooth out shots and learn the ropes. Our...

Squeege is eating our chips

I came across some of my old, 8mm video tapes the other day. I shot a lot of video back in college during parties, band rehearsals in the basement and just anything else that would make for some great video. This was by far one of the greatest ‘gets’ I got back then. It’s the day Squeege the Squirrel broke into our house and ate our chips. Squeege was the neighborhood squirrel...

18 years: the search for Jodi Huisentruit

18 years is a hell of a long time to wait without answers. I can’t imagine how the family of former television news anchor Jodi Huisentruit must truly feel. I’ve talked with a few of them over the years and we stay in touch, but to deal with the pain and agony of not knowing where a loved one is, must truly be the worst nightmare anyone can face. Jodi was abducted 18 years ago today...

The new mid-life crisis: the Internet

If you were asked to step away from the Internet, could you? No, stop and think hard. Could you actually stop using your cell phone apps, maps, Twitter, Facebook, Angry Birds, Skype, Facetime, Google….? Paul Miller is a man who took the challenge. I won’t tell you how it ends. But this video is quite a project by Paul and the group at The Verge. I didn’t know anything about Paul...

Video from inside a tornado in Moore, Oklahoma

Dozens of amazing videos are now surfacing from those who survived the tornado in Moore, Oklahoma. Rarely do we get a view from inside a tornado, but that’s exactly what we’re seeing in this video from Charles Gafford.¬† Here is what he had to say about this video: Full, super close-up video of the devastating tornado that hit Moore, Oklahoma. Alex Rodriguez and I were in a storm...

3D inspection nothing new for South Florida company

The Great 3D Revolution Recently the social interwebs came alive with with video of a 25-year-old, Ray Ban-clad, hat bill-flipped Texan popping off rounds from a handgun at a local gun range. It wasn’t exciting. What was, is the fact that the gun he was using was made of all plastic and it was made with a 3D printer. Cody Wilson shot once and killed twice that day. He killed the notion that...

Blair Walsh: Kicking through the NFL

I had the great opportunity of meeting and interviewing Minnesota Vikings kicker Blair Walsh recently. When I learned Blair grew up in Boca Raton, Florida and played football and graduated from Cardinal Gibbons High School in Fort Lauderdale, I knew that South Floridians would have a big interest to learn about what Blair has done in the National Football League in such a short amount of time...

Robotic Pack Mules and why they rock

If you haven’t seen this video below – you must.¬† It’s creepy but ridiculously futuristic. Not only is this a great idea (in my opinion), it’s a step in the direction that many people figured we’d get to eventually: cyborgs and other robots waging our battles and performing jobs that humans currently occupy. These ‘robotic pack mules’ are beasts. They...

The Friday Squad: My favorite story

I often ask people in TV News about their favorite story. Many times they didn’t even cover it. It’s always interesting to see great work from other reporters and photographers from stations around the country. I saw what would be my favorite story when I became an intern at WCCO-TV in Minneapolis all the way back in 2001 (seems like forever ago). I worked alongside David Schechter at...
