Reading, writing, and ROLL tape! It took the KOMO 4 promo crew, cameraman Mark Nazarino, 20 excited kids and four excited anchors to help make this year’s back to school promos for KOMO 4 Morning News. It was a fun filled shoot in the hot sun at Cascade Elementary School in Issaquah. The kids were great sports and took direction well from creative services producer Sara Avery. What’s the secret according to Sara? We just bribed them with a van full of fruit punch, cracker jacks, and lollipops! Great shots were taken all from the one location. Video was shot on BetacamSX in widescreen format. Many thanks to the Cascade Elementary School and parents who helped make this shoot such a success! The promo features KOMO 4 Morning News anchors Mike Dardis, Molly Shen, Paul Deanno and Rachel Murcia. KOMO 4 Morning News is seen weekdays from 5am-7am on KOMO 4.
Chilling out in the van where all the goodies were stashed.
See how organized the kids were? We couldn’t ask for better cooperation from our young actors!
