Angle on the Address
Friday, January 23, 2004
There weren't many surprises in this year's State of the Union Address, at least as far as the camera angles were concerned. We saw the usual well-timed cuts from the President to audience members with an apparent connection to his speech. As always, there was the sense that the camera operators were operating with a copy of the speech, a seating chart and a game plan. Who makes that plan? This year, it was ABC producer Peter Doherty. He tells Brooke how it all works.
