December was a month of preparation, capped off with a little bit of celebration. We continued to acquire everything necessary to produce quality videos in treacherous conditions (blinding flourescent lights, endless office monotony and mouse-maze hallways).
|30/12/2019||Coloured folder tabs|
Pretending to be professional by organising things. Which is more fun when the dividers come in different colours.
To present you: The internet!
|23/12/2019||Snowglobe and sunglasses from the House of European History giftshop|
To express our love for Europe.
No lens, no videos.
|10/12/2019||External hard drives and extension cable|
To save data and to make it possible to work in the hallway so we can get the impression of being free.
The hearts of people in the parliament in Strasbourg are so cold that we are freezing. But seriously, this building is cold and we are not allowed to make a fire.
|10/12/2019||Public transportation tickets|
A team member had to go shopping (see other items above) outside of the city center.
|10/12/2019||Key for the office|
To open and close the door of the office.
Computer monitors in the EP are just like nazis in the EP, they don't show their true colors. To design better graphics, we bought a monitor that has nothing to hide.
|09/12/2019||Office equipment: Socket strips, magnets, stamp pads, scissors, brochure covers, adhesive rollers, pens and staples|
We didn't want to ask other offices for supplies anymore - this leaves us open to blackmail.
For upping the style of the whole team. (We also need to wear them in an upcoming video.)
|09/12/2019||2 color printers|
To print black and white.
If our video producer starts to shiver because of all the cruelties she has to see, at least the videos will be stable.
To carry the video equipment and spare our team back pain.
The camera doesn't forget and knows what you did last plenary week...
|07/12/2019||Book: Management for dummies (it has a different name though)|
Helps Nico to become a better boss each day.
We got no power if our camera doesn't have it either.
Same as with the tripod - it helps our video producer stay stable.
