Editorial Reviews

NOT FOR CLASSROOM OR PUBLIC VIEWING. The Associated Press, with hundreds of photographers worldwide, transmits 3,000 pictures each day - more than a million pictures a year. More than a billion people a day see AP photographs in their newspapers, magazines, & in the roll of Internet news coverage flashing on computer screens. *** "Deadline Every Second" goes behind the scenes with photojournalists of the Associated Press, the world's largest news picture agency. *** You will be on deadline with 12 top AP photographers in the U.S. (from California wildfires to Wall Street), Europe (from 10 Downing St. to the Tour de France) & the Middle East (from the West Bank and Gaza to Israel). *** You will be there as photographers capture still images ranging from sports & light features to danger & grief. They cover demonstrations in Greece & San Francisco, the earthquake in Haiti, a US Marine patrol in Afghanistan, an assassination attempt in Pakistan. They share strategies for approaching an assignment, whether it's the arrival of a wax figure of Obama for a museum, or a fiery clash in the West Bank. And they reveal their own reactions to the often brutal situations they cover. *** This documentary will change how you look at news images, especially if they bear the credit AP Photo. ****COMMENTS FROM REVIEWERS: "This is f****** great. ...a journey into the unseen world of news photojournalism & what it takes to bring back the images the public takes for granted every day. We meet the brave, cunning & talented photographers who deliver the world to our homes & experience some of what they have endure to get the job done." -- PF Bentley, former TIME magazine photojournalist ***** "Every AP photographer has to find 2 photos of every news event. The ... shot editors always want & the unexpected shot they don't know they want. It's a nearly impossible task, but the shooters in this doc show you how they do it, day & day out." -- Steve Wolgast, News Photographer mag.

As the acting chair of SF State's Journalism Department and a former reporter for the SF Chronicle and the Associated Press in Los Angeles, I can say that Ken Kobre's documentary is the most accurate and revealing movie I have seen on the news business since Page One. Ken captured the essence of quality journalism by catapulting the viewer into the fast-paced and often dangerous lives of 12 photographers working for one of the biggest news organizations in the world. In documenting the story through his lens, Ken did not lecture us on how to feel about the many challenges and risks journalists face in covering the news. Instead, he kept the narrative moving so that we could see for ourselves what journalists do in seeking truth and reporting it. I am also reminded that the most dedicated journalists share some common characteristics: They are gutsy, defiant and compassionate. I recommend this to anyone interested in learning more about the news business and journalism. No amount of classes or online training will give you a better sense of our craft. Bravo!

5.0 out of 5 stars A good look at life as a photojournalist January 26, 2013
Verified Purchase
Thought this DVD captured the various aspects of working photojournalist's from the mundane types of assignments to those intense moments one sees via video on network news broadcasts. The DVD doesn't overplay the work of a journalist or underplay it. It shows what it is and the viewer gets to hear from the photojournalists their own personal views about their work.

This documentary, unlike many, is obviously a factual visual statement about the work of good photojournalists. This production should be viewed by everyone.

Ken Kobre and John Hewitt give an excellent look at life behind the camera of 12 Associated Press photographers. The best part is that the photojournalists tell their story while photographing actual news events.
