Here’s your weekly sneak-peek video for the upcoming edition of Mountain Xpress. It was produced by none other than Ralph Roberts, an Asheville videographer and board member at Asheville’s public-access channel, URTV. Xpress invited Roberts to give us a few pointers on video production and show us what he could do.
This week’s cover story focuses on Ray’s Weather Center, a Boone-based Internet company offering weather data and forecasts for Western North Carolina. Over the past 10 years, the company has grown from a one-man operation to a company that employs five meteorologists, publishes real-time weather data to the Web and offers forecasts written with a little extra pizzazz.
