UNC student withdraws to join revolution in Tunisia: Here’s an example of a short news video with a tight deadline (she was leaving the same day). There were some sacrifices, like the terrible audio, but overall, I think it was an effective video. Senior Mariem Masmoudi recently withdrew from UNC-Chapel Hill after the former Tunisian president, Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, fled the country, leaving the possibility for a new government after 23 years of one-party rule.
