The glorious part of the job: Need a white balance? Is this mic working? Testing. 1-2-3!
Got to work with Cleveland Police today on an ongoing campaign for safety within the community.
But it was such a nice day today that we decided to roll it out in front of Cleveland Police HQ. FYI-a downtown public open plaza makes it a bit more challenging to do live social media feeds.
No time for funny business because FacebookLive is…well LIVE! So no second takes, redo, or screwing around!
OK, a little screwing around.
Yes, sharing the message on FacebookLive does aggregate the video higher on Facebook users’ feed and notifications – however, the content needs to be engaging. Also, needs a teaser, and lead in, and most importantly, a hook!
The story of the arrest flowed easily and the officers were able to recount the events. Like countless police officers across this country, all are proud of the work they do within every community and continue to provide tireless service to their constituents.
Did you see Cleveland Police talking about N.I.C.E. and their apprehension?
I’ll give you a hint, it had to deal with taking guns off the street…also our hook.
Well, if you missed it, you can watch the full FacebookLive video here:
I hope you enjoyed a little behind the scenes PIO views.
I’m glad to be working with a great organization to bring more safety to all residents in the community.
Doing some PIO camera work today. Don’t be nervous!
Even for the most experienced professional, on camera interviews are challenging, but the more you do them, the easier it gets. Additionally, we were fortunate to have several participants with past media (TV and newspaper) experiences to share with the class too.
Social media? You bet! We talked a ton about SnapChat too.
Also had some fun with FacebookLive.
On the spot interviews showcasing the new Quint.
Today I’ll be supporting fellow PIOs for Cleveland Water as they host open forum meetings with the community.
You can check out my periscope broadcast here.
Or, you can check out the Cleveland Water FPV FacebookLive camera here.
At the end, I’ll be doing some social media live broadcast stuff as well as some fun interview work with other PIOs and Commissioner.
BTW-2016 World Series game-3 is tonight in Chicago.
As always #GoTribe #RallyTogether
Strong classroom engagement yesterday with many military personnel attending including a Lieutenant Colonel. But today’s class? They are asking some serious deep social media questions too!
Including FacebookLive! So, like any hands-on PIO instructor, I decided to grab one of them and do a live demo. Say hello to USAF OK ANG PAO Brigette Waltermire!
Showcasing some social media live streaming magic to the class.
During the break, I was able to demo how we do the behind the scenes stuff so that the PIOs/PAOs in the audience can see how much work goes into a two-minute interview.
Special mahalos to my friend Amber for the invite to Oklahoma again.
I am fortunate to have so much fun teaching in Region-6 with great peeps!
Breaking open the seal on the newly revised DHS / FEMA / NDPTC Social Media for Natural Disasters Response and Recovery course.
Break out all my best #octothorp jokes now…
