An Interview with Dr. Ben Carson on Education. ➞ bitly.com/bencarsoninterview
Last month, my employer had a last-minute opportunity to interview presidential hopeful, Ben Carson, M.D. I was tasked with filming the interview and would have the opportunity to ask a question or two, myself.
What ensued was a comedy of mishaps—which I am told is typical with nearly any field shoot. Especially with borrowed gear, a hastily-assembled team, and barely a week to prepare. First, we were led to a room super-saturated in orange due to sunlight bouncing off a stadium of day-glo-painted seats. Then we had an uncontrollably noisy A/C blower. We had power issues. We had mic issues. Our digital audio recorder was fried—and we didn't know it.
Somehow, we survived and salvaged the interview.
And Dr. Carson is a prince of a man. Whatever you think of his politics, he’s smart, humble, and gracious.
