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.
