Cyndy Green, owner of thinknews, has more than four decades of experience, ranging from daily turn-around shooting multiple news stories to long form documentaries, producing commercials and promotional videos, and more. Cyndy’s base of operations has been Northern California since 1974…and Stockton and San Joaquin County for most of that time.
Mobility and quick-turnaround are hallmarks of her style, due to her extensive background in news. A combination of those attributes along with an eye for detail and quality make thinknews a small but powerful company to consider for your video needs.
Cyndy also spent eight plus years as a high school teacher. Her initial assignment at Middle College High School, located on the San Joaquin Delta College campus, catapulted her high school students ahead of industry standards as they learned how to produce digital videos years ahead of local production and broadcast companies. Students gained real world experience working under her direction on programs such as “Every 15 Minutes” and videos for the local agricultural industry, San Joaquin Hospice, and the 48 Hour Film Project.
This teaching background is woven into projects thinknews works on as clients are educated in what works best to fulfill their video production needs – from scripting to lighting to locations.
March 1, 2014 – A heads up to those seeking help with videos…the truth is I’m nearing the end of my career…which began with a simple still camera at age 12 and developed into nearly forty years behind the camera both in the field and the classroom. I went from shooting production stills to news film and video to teaching broadcasting to retired and working part time with high school students and freelancing as a camera/shooter/videojournalist.
Within the next few years all of this will slow down…but never really stop. (I view doing nothing as the beginning of death.) I will still be available from time to time for hire and for contracted projects and will continue to work on personal projects.
