Boston Bombing Witness to Return

¬†Ekman saw the bombs go off while in the final stretch of the Boston Marathon. He’s going back to finish the race. I met up with him last week while on assignment in Northern Arizona. The problem was, there wasn’t much to use for b-roll since all I had was an interview. He wasn’t running and I didn’t want to re-use wire photos from the bombing. I’ve been learning how to make video motion graphics, so I thought I’d try animate his story in Affter Effects. For me, it’s something new.¬†
