Here’s a screen capture from the Making of Victoria DVD featurette giving a different angle of Jenna and her Polaroid than the one seen in the ani-gifs that are making the rounds (she’s taking a picture of Rufus during a break in filming). She also talks a little bit about getting into photography. Jenna strikes me as a bit of an old soul (in a good way)- like how she keeps saying she’d like to meet Sinatra or singing an obscure (to today’s 30 year olds) Shocking Blue song with Peter on the set of Hell Bent (as captured by one of Maisie Williams’ online videos). So there’s something that’s just, I don’t know, right about seeing Jenna using a camera from the 1970s.
“I love the adventure of this job. In News, you don’t know what you are doing tomorrow, I can get a text message saying pack your bags and a week later you return. You get to meet so many people and it puts you in places that tickets can’t buy” - Patrick Rocca, Links Operator
When big stories break, ABC News needs to get video on air and online as quickly as possible. Often a links van is deployed to feed footage, a live interview or reporter live cross from out in the field back to the newsroom and TV studios. In this video, Patrick Rocca, one of the Melbourne based links operators explains the challenges and highlights of the job.
