Postering 2008: The Video

In the second part of my video posting binge, I am putting up one of my favorite GW traditions. Pamplona has the running of the bulls, New York and Boston have their marathons. GW has postering.

Once a year, at the crack of dawn, candidates and their volunteers gather on H Street to wait for a signal that tells them it is okay to put up campaign posters. What ensues is utter chaos. Utter, utter chaos. People sprint to hold prime locations for their posters while others put the actual posters up. It is insane.

Last year, I thought it would be a cool experience to tape the event, but with a twist. Using the iSight camera in my Macbook, I shot the video in time lapse and it was pretty neat. You can check it out here. Since then, people have asked me if I would do it again this year. Well, I obliged and here is the 2008 Postering video, complete with interviews. Check it out:
