CNN Headline News & Univision - Crane Collapse shot with XL-1

I shot this crane collapse content for CNN Headline news last Monday, July 2, 2007. The police video actually shows the crane falling on the car! It ran all day long the next day. It also aired on Univision. It was shot with a Canon XL-1.

Nice shot. I'd say you were lucky - twice!

Did you make any money for this? On air credit?

Were you considered a suspect? :-)

Yes, I guess it is lucky to get paid these days with all of the people giving video away for FREE! I don't work for free anymore so yes, I got paid twice.

I saw the cop cam footage on LiveLeak. It is interesting to see footage of what the result was. Having that live footage of the accident happening probably made it a national story.

So do you cruise around with your XL1 and a Bearcat or did you just happen by?

Yes, the dash camera footage definitely helped to move that video.

I always carry my camera wherever I go anyway and I do have a scanner because I operate my own breaking news video website in my area. So that's where my non regional or national interest content goes in addition to the content that does make it to higher levels like this did.

Yes, she was very lucky. Just another foot or two and that would have done it.

Wow. I would like to check that out. Looks like they blured out your info. That footage you shot looked great. It fit CNN perfectly. Handheld quick zoom out and pan, sharp, etc. Cool stuff.

The reason that area is blurred out is because they had received someone elses amateur footage from an Atlanta affiliate that got it for FREE. The media information got mixed up and they credited another news source in my area! When I saw it, I was livid and quickly called them and they promptly corrected it by blurring that name out for the rest of the day. The important thing is that I got paid though.

Sorry, I can't post my news website because I don't want to publicize it anywhere other than the my local market area so I can get accurate local traffic viewer reports only. But below is my cut that is shown on my news site with interviews that CNN didn't use. Other sites in my area and elsewhere don't seem to care about outside traffic skewing their veiwer reports so their viewer traffic for their local area is artificially inflated so they can deceive their sponsors and justify charging more for ads. Unfortunately, that's a common practice. I actually like to know how many local viewers ONLY are viewing my site and video and the only way to do that is to not advertise anywhere outside of my area.
