OCCUPATION: Videographer / Reporter / Editor… or Audio-Visual Storyteller
LOCATION: Echo Park
WHAT’S YOUR HUSTLE: I’m a part-time cameraman, sometimes shooting movies, but more often documenting situations. I’m also a part-time reporter. I just finished a radio story on the Obama Administration’s immigration policy, as seen through the first big example, American Apparel. The video version will soon be up on my self-promotional website, burkepost.com.
WHAT DOES YOUR HUSTLE MEAN TO YOU: When I have good projects, it means I have a meaningful role in society – creating windows for understanding. When that’s not the case, it means my hustle needs improvement.
IF YOU COULD HAVE ONLY THREE TOOLS FOR YOUR HUSTLE, WHAT WOULD THEY BE: Panasonic HVX with accessories; Mac with Final Cut Studio and Pro Tools; and a friendly warm beverage, like coffee.
