    Jonathan did a great with the shooting but even better job with some out of the ordinary logistical challenges: setting up a panel of students, locating at shooting location, and decorating the set.

  • There's Something Rotten in the State of Denmark

    • News Shooter / Video Journalist

    While refugees are streaming across Denmark to get to Sweden, some are saying the Danish police are treating them worse than their Hungarian counterparts. The governments of Sweden and Denmark are treating the refugee crisis in very different ways -the liberal Swedish Government is welcoming them while the newly elected Danish Government is doing everything in its power to keep them away.
