I have had the wonderful fortune of getting to blog for the CBC. I guess all this cross-platform reporting I do is paying off if it’s getting me sweet gigs like this:)I was one of eight people who were hired on CBC’s Street Team to report on the ins and outs of the Toronto International Film Festival 2010. Our only mission was to bring to light the stories of TIFF outside of generic movie reviews and celeb interviews and we could do this through writing, video and tweeting. Fun challenge.
Some of the angles I covered were more along the business side of TIFF, like gifting suites and what TIFF offers for emerging filmmakers. I even pulled out my handy ol’ FlipCam (my fave!) and hit the streets asking people about their fave celeb sighting stories.
I’m glad networks are moving in the direction of cross-platform reporting. It’s so dynamic and ends up offering audiences a feast for the senses:)
