Citizen Journalist

This Saturday while in town I came across group of people marching being escorted by the police. Many people had stopped to watch and find out what was going on. I pulled out my mobile phone and began to record what was happening in front of me. As a gentleman approached me to hand me a leaflet, I managed to conduct a quick interview to ask him what was happening.

Below is the raw unedited footage I captured

Since making this video (and working with ITV local, who also handed out Nokia N95's as well as hand-held Hi-Def cameras to interview the crowd) I have become aware that most people are very open to being interviewed. My previous perception was that people would shy away from a camera (I think mobile phones are a very unobtrusive type of camera that people are comfortable to talk in front of)
