Last weekend I was in New Orleans for Essence Festival supporting a client by publishing content to their social channels in real time. I had a production crew capturing content and other team members supporting the client in other ways. It was a fast-paced, action-packed weekend and we capture a ton of content. The image below is everything I had in my backpack all weekend. This backpack was like my survival kit – I lived out of it! Here’s a peek into how I prepared for the weekend, and tips for what it takes if you’ve got an upcoming event perfect for content storytelling.
