Open call to IMC videographers!!!
IS AN OPEN CALL TO ALL 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.
