New E-Mail List for Newspaper Video Shooters

August 18, 2006 – Are you creating video for your paper’s website? Feeling lonely and outcast? Join the NewspaperVideo email list for fellow photographers who have discovered the joys of dropouts, codecs, nle’s, and bitrates!

Newspaper video journalists are a rare but rapidly-expanding breed. I’m Chuck Fadely, a veteran still shooter at the Miami Herald. I’ve switched to shooting video full time and I’m starting this email list to let us link up and share experiences. While publishers seem to be gung-ho on video, newsrooms often don’t seem to know what to do with it. Maybe this’ll help figure it out.

The membership is vetted and is intended for newspaper staffers; it should be low traffic. Some of the topics I’d like to talk about:
story telling
newsroom structure and politics
assignment vs. authorship
web players
traffic measurement
ad placement
codecs, bitrates, compression
video vs. SoundSlides vs. Flash packages

Send an email to or go to the NewspaperVideo site at and sign up. Please tell me who you are, and real names….

If you can’t or don’t want to sign up for Yahoo Groups!, send an email with your name and email and I’ll add you to the mail list manually.

Please forward this to any other shooters you know who might be interested.
