Now news of another alumnus who is doing some interesting work related to this summer’s Olympics.
Since Glenn Osten Anderson’s (C’02, Pennfest 2007) web-video project for The Long Road got nominated for a Webby Award, he has been working with his producing partners Brian Sabin (RW Staff Producer) & Josh Cox (World Class Marathoner and On-air personality) at Runner’s World magazine to program and produce web video coverage of the US Olympic Track and Field Trials.
“We wanted to give a sort of ‘insiders’ view of the meet and the incredible atmosphere — so we did feature stories, post-race interviews and daily recaps. We also wanted to deliver a really well-produced high quality production. There is a temptation with web-video (especially within the sports world) for fast turnover and thus getting ‘something/ anything’ up quickly — we sought to truly produce the pieces like TV packages and the reaction has been fantastic (which helps justify the 22+ hour days out in Eugene).”
