Summary

Liz Nayadley is a hard working individual looking to flex her many skills and offer her experience. Working in a fast paced environment is how she has gained most of her skills. Editing breaking news videos, updating the web and toning images for the newspaper were a few her daily duties.

All videos on this site were published on The Rocky Mountain News website. All videos have me listed as producer. The Rocky’s definition of producer also means that they were edited by me. All footage, audio and images were gathered by photographers and then passed over to me to organize into a cohesive video that was then linked to a related story or could stand on it’s own. Most of the videos needed to be produced the same day. Some videos were made into quick clips and put on the website immediately and then revisited to become a more organized stand alone.
