Open call to IMC videographers!

by INN Tuesday, May. 28, 2002 at 12:56 AM

Open call to IMC videographers!!!



'INN Reports Worldview,' started by NYC IMC'er Lenny Charles with the

help of activist programmer Tom Kiely are looking for videographers &

stringers who are interested in having their international news

footage and stories included in our new show.

Free Speech TV transmitted on DBS Satellite and also rebroadcast to

public access channels, with live real broadcast available on the

Internet will broadcast the show domestically. We hope to be able to

set up an infrastructure in order for footage to be sourced out to

other progressive news networks. The show is scheduled to launch

early this summer.

We are producing this show from our studio in New York City near

Ground Zero in the same location that hosted the IMC's 'head

quarters' during the World Economic Forum last February. Our mission

is to bring attention to pressing daily and current international

news stories that are not being covered by US mainstream media in

order to create greater public awareness.

The aim is to broaden the perspective and discourse of the average

American citizen in a format that is relevant and accessible to

viewers regardless of their background or political


'INN Reports Worldview' is an alternative/activist news show with a

surprisingly 'straight' look to it! The show, produced five days a

week, features our newscaster reading news gathered from original

foreign sources via a non-US newswire that links many of the world's

best media outlets, as well as contributing activist reports.

Stepping outside the US media bias, it's encouraging and surprising

how many other voices there are around the world that echo our

concerns about runaway globalization and militarization.

The first half of our show has a traditional newsroom feeling, using

available video footage, stills, maps and graphics to support the

stories. The second half is presented in a roundtable format, with

international guests and activists discussing and debating current


The most difficult part of this project is bringing credibility to

our stories, most of which are never told here in the US, or if they

are, are re-spun to support government objectives. This is where

those of you who are interested in participating come into the

picture, literally! In order to make this a successful outlet for

international news, capturing an audience that watches on a regular

basis, we believe the live, local, supporting video footage to be one

of the most important elements of the show.

Sixty percent of Americans still get most of their news from

mainstream sources even though an unlimited amount and variety is

available through alternative sources including the Internet and

don't we know it! INN's objective is to offer a different reality in

a familiar way, only a few clicks down from the big networks on your


We plan to post the stories we will be covering on a regular basis

throughout the week in a listserve fashion that will be easy for

everyone to check in on. Once we have established a relationship and

the terms we mutually agree to work with we can remain in touch by

email. You'll let us know if you have footage to support any stories

that week. Details on listserve come.

Following is our tried and true, proven to work, protocol for sending

footage and stills. Follow the steps and send us a test clip. All

necessary instructions are in the protocol, the only thing you will

need to contact us for is to get our FTP information. Include any

questions or concerns.

Please contact me

Dynamic Visual Coordinator/Stringers/Video/Stills

please contact ->PAZ

We look forward to hearing from you!




Following are the instructions for videographers FTPing video footage

to INN's server.

This footage is being collected by 'International News Network' and

will be made available to

other progressive shows/collectives & all IMC's in accordance with a

prearranged agreement

with the videoraphers and INN. *This works best with a high speed

connection 56k or better.


There are basically three steps that are involved to send us footage,

its' as simple as A B C!

A -Capture

B -Compress

C -FTP to us

What is so special about this protocol is that once it's expanded

into Media 100, Avid or FCP

and played back it's close toTV broadcast quality.


PREPARATION -what you'll need to do first before you can send footage

1- Download your software ~ MAC &/or Windows

- Go to '' get the free vp3 codec (not vp 4) for either

platform, MAC or Windows

and install it.

- If your Mac didn't come with iMovie, go to this link and download

version 2.0.3, tips and requirements listed

- If you don't have the latest version of QuickTime (5 is preferable)

on your PC, you will need

to download & install it

- For Windows go this link for Premiere. Check system requirements and


- For an FTP client application we recommend is Fetch, or use your


- FAQ for Fetch and FTPing, if you need it

2- Please contact us by email for FTP server, username and password.


Please include in your subject heading: FTP ADDRESS

3- Test: start by sending us a one-minute clip to make sure the

conversion is working for you


A- CAPTURE -For MAC capture in iMovie or Final Cut Pro (FCP)

preferably from a deck, or your camcorder. For WINDOWS - capture in

Premier or any editing program that lets you export in QuickTime (QT).

*For MAC users, exporting in iMovie is much faster (3 min to every 1

min of video) than FCP (about 14min to every 1 min), however any

editing program that you're using will work if compatible with QT


B- COMPRESS -Editing techniques vary depending on your software.

When you've captured your one-minute clip, to test, go to the export

feature and
