We decided early on that we wanted the video on Studio 55, especially the longer stories that ran in the second segment, to feel like short-form documentaries.
We wouldnâ€™t have a reporter doing any sort of stand-up for these longer video stories, and we also wouldnâ€™t have a reporter do any sort of voiceover or narration. The stories would just be natural sound and interviews. And music.
For some reason, we thought this sort of video storytelling kind of felt like what newspaper storytelling might look like in video format.
