Meet Alan Schlesinger, Republican for US Senate in Connecticut. Mr. Schlesinger graciously allowed us an hour to discuss the issues with him. This interview runs about 24 minutes, and covers his views on Iraq, Iran, Social Security, the Republican Party, the Senate race in Connecticut, and the candidates he's running against. Here's his official campaign website: Schlesinger2006.
UPDATE: Spazeboy has a transcript of some of the interview on Spazeboy.net. Thanks, Spaze!
So far, we've interviewed Senate candidates Ned Lamont and Alan Schlesinger; we're still waiting to hear back from Senator Lieberman.
As an aside, this was the first two-camera shoot I've ever done. I used my camera and mic on a mic stand, and I set up my two China lamps to provide additional light, then set up Spazeboy's camera and mic stand, wired both mics into a dual jack then plugged them into my camera, and started both cameras and let Online Journalist Pat Carroll take it away. (And she did a fantastic job!)
I edited the two tapes for a good seven hours last night before uploading it to Youtube. It was a learning experience on how to edit a two camera shoot. The important thing was to run both mics into the same camera, and use the "B-camera" only for video. (I know that nobody except Spazeboy and CT Blogger will give a crap about these technical details, but these are the guys who's opinions matter most to me.)
