With the death of Osama Bin Laden making the headlines, our discussion over coffee this morning (yes, some us have to work!) revolved around the horrific Al-Qaeda led terrorist attacks the world has suffered, and in particular 9/11.
Everyone can remember where they were when the World Trade Center was attacked almost ten years ago, and so we discussed what each member of our production team was doing as the tragic news broke. Whilst some of our crew were sunning themselves in Majorca, and others were out on a shoot, a few of our guys remember being knee-deep in tapes carrying out the mammoth mission that was the tape log. Logging camera and master tapes is possibly one of the more mundane tasks of this video production game but never, before or since, has it held such significance in our crew’s memories.
Our thoughts go out to the victims of terrorism and their families who, on this massive day in history, can perhaps find some solace in the fact that Bin Laden is dead.
The question is… will we all remember where we were and what we were each doing when news broke of the death of the world’s most wanted man?
