First New York DV Show Exceeds Expectations
The first annual New York DV Show brought in 7,000 attendees, widely exceeding preconference estimates of 4,000-5,000. The exhibition, organized by Mindshare Ventures and Future Media Concepts, focused on educational speeches and sessions and product displays geared to DV and film professionals.

Highlights included:
* A keynote speech on the changing face of movie-making and special effects;
* A presentation by film editor Thelma Schoonmaker on her professional experiences;
* A presentation on "The Making of Chelsea Walls," a low-budget film shot solely on DV.

The five-day event had 170 sessions, five conferences and 70 exhibitors. At the show Avid launched its Xpress DV3 and Adobe added its first totally programmable plug-in, "Useful Things," to its After Effects software.

Local TV Station Reports from Afghanistan

WZTV-TV (Fox 17) in Nashville, Tenn. distinguished itself from other news programs when it became one of the first local television stations in the United States to send local reporters to Afghanistan to cover the War on Terrorism. WZTV is one of 29 television stations owned or operated by Sinclair Broadcast Group, Inc. that produce local news. Sinclair owns or operates a total of 63 television stations in the U.S.

"The news staff at WZTV approached us with the idea as a way of bringing the viewers more personalized stories about the War," commented David Smith, CEO of Sinclair. "While the national news has focused on the war's progression, WZTV's news crew wanted to focus on our soldiers and the people of Kandahar."

Reporting from Afghanistan for WZTV's "Fox 17 News" was reporter, Rey Harris, and photographer, Bob Shrader, who traveled with the 101st Airborne Division to their destination in Kandahar. Once there, the 101st took over for the Marines in guarding Taliban prisoners at the Kandahar Airport and maintaining U.S. control of the airport.
