This video came about somewhat haphazardly. I planned to meet up with Katherine Curry, a freelance food writer for The Journal News, to check out a few hot dog and ice cream spots in Westchester. I asked Katherine if she minded me shooting video of her, mostly for testing and to work some technical things out. She was kind enough to say yes and let me stick a camera in her face. So I grabbed a bunch of shots, and later when I reviewed the footage decided, what the heck, maybe I can eke a piece out of this.
We had intended to hit three hot dog spots, but ran out of time and only made it two. We were also lucky enough to be joined at the first two stops by The Journal News’s Liz Johnson, and Liz’s intern, Colin.
One more thing: I stupidly forgot to bring my spare camera battery. Ran out of juice while we were at So Dam Hot, so I had to stop shooting; you’ll notice there’s no natural ending to the piece. Lesson learned. That won’t happen again.
Anyway, hope you like it!
