Ever drive 5 hours on a workday for roadkill? I did, with WAMU’s environmental report Jonathan Wilson. My hope was that the process would lend itself well to the use of gifs, but they were about squirrely about me getting close to the machinery in motion, so I settled for shooting a slideshow.
Still a fun story to shoot, including one memorable moment where I was squatting by the side of a narrow two-lane road as 18-wheelers rolled by inches away to get the perfect shot of a dead possum. My hope is that I can find more stories that justify working remotely with a reporter to show that multimedia isn’t the heavy lift they sometimes make it out to be.
