Welcome to First Cameraman, the tumblr! If you were looking for FirstCameraman, the website, please let me be the first to apologize. It was hacked. In fact it was hacked into many little pieces that no longer work. No one was more upset than my assistant Eden Joyner who had built it brick by brick in the hellfire of Wordpress in the late summer of 2012. I’ve done my best to console her … all the fashionable sites are hacked … sincerest form of flattery… all people of taste are looking for such treatment etc. And this tumblr, First Cameraman the tumblr, is the result of her continued hard work and unflagging spirit in the face of adversity.
The timing of this announcement is no coincidence. Today First Cameraman, the paperback is available. It has a new afterword which was a word I was spelling wrong until the good and learned people at St. Martin’s corrected me, that brings the scope of the book through the 2012 election.
I am also toiling away on First Cameraman, the podcast, which will be an audio version of the book with bits of interview afterward featuring some folks from the text. I think the first go round will be with Jen Psaki, Chris Northcross, and handsome Ari Shapiro, but I do ask for your patience, tolerant listeners, I’m still tinkering away, it will not be a perfect product.
Once again, welcome to First Camerman, the tumblr, and if you need anything or would like to hear again about how First Cameraman the website was hacked just sing out!
