Name: KHOU-11 & HMNS - Do the Weather with Chita

How to get “real” people at an “unreal” rate (free) to show up for a shoot and work it? Oh, yeah, they need to be cute, not camera shy, take direction AND in elementary school?!

This was the pre-production and production challenges on making this video for KHOU-11 and The Houston Museum of Natural Science.

A first-class museum, potential danger and an interactive kiosk. Who could ask for a better combination when teaching science to students? Meteorologist Chita Johnson joins a gaggle of kids learning about tornadoes and hurricanes while delivering the weather report on camera.

Nailed it!
