Locum Productions shoot/edit Charles
Miller is working with CNN in Kuwait, where he is embedded with
the US 3rd Infantry Division. Wherever they go hell follow,
recording events as they happen.
Charles has had to come up with some innovative techniques to
keep weight down. He needs to be able to physically carry enough
equipment to shoot, edit and feed his material back to CNN in
Hes shooting using Sonys PD150 DVCAM camera, editing
on an Apple G4 laptop using Final Cut Pro, and feeding using
a software-based store and forward system on the laptop, with
two M4 satellite phones.
He and correspondent Walter Rogers are also providing live reports
from the field via videophone.
The kit provides mobility in challenging desert conditions and
the flexibility needed on a developing news assignment. It means
the job can be done with the minimum amount of equipment while
maintaining the highest standards.
