I’ve always been interested in seeing how women’s leagues compare to the more popular, well-known men’s leagues. Professional hockey is interesting to look at because the NHL has such a huge following. The National Women’s Hockey League is only in its second season, but it’s steadily gaining fans and recognition, so I went to a Boston Pride game to see what the atmosphere was like. They played at Warrior Ice Arena, which happens to be the Bruins’ practice facility. Although the game was nothing like an NHL game in terms of fan turnout, the Pride seemed to have gained a solid following.
This was my first-ever attempt at a news video, so I definitely experienced a good number of challenges in both shooting and editing the video. It’s a useful skill to have as a journalist, though.
