San Francisco/Northern California Chapter

For the second year in a row, it appears there are more than 700 entries in the annual Northern California Area Emmy Awards competition. As of late January, 722 entries in 55 categories had come into the Academy’s San Mateo office, slightly ahead of last year’s 703 total. It’s the highest Emmy entry total in more than 20 years. Nominees will be announced April 14. The Emmy show will be held Saturday, May 14, at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco. “The healthy number of entries shows the Emmy contest remains a viable competition, one that people in the television industry value,” said David Mills, NATAS’ Northern California chapter president. Mills also complimented the Awards Committee, led by Javier Valencia, for adding new categories this year and combining others. The most competitive categories will once again be the features. “Serious News Feature” and “Light News Feature” tied for most entries with 31 each. The “Cultural Affairs Segment” category was third with 29 entries followed by “General News Reporting” with 28. The “On Camera News/Field Reporting” category will be a competitive one with 27 entries, up 11 entries from the year before. “Educational/Instructional Program” also had 27 entries while “Specialized Reporting” brought in 25. “Entertainment Program” had a spike in entries, jumping 13 entries to 23. “Serious News Feature — Series” doubled its number of entries, hitting 22 this year. Fourteen stations entered the “Best Newscast/Large Market” category, compared to 11 last year. Seven stations entered “Best Newscast/Medium Market,” the same as last year. Four stations sent in entries in the “Best Newscast/Small Market,” up from 2 last year. Nine broadcasts entered the “Best Daytime Newscast/Large Market” while no stations filed in the daytime medium or small market categories. continued on page 2


Eight years ago the prosumer DV format was introduced into an unsuspecting world dominated by professional beta camcorders. Producers quickly realized that in many cases DV acquisition would give them 85% of beta quality…at one-tenth the price. Now DV footage has insinuated itself into many local and national beta productions as cut-away shots or even main show content. This assault on the professional beta format has accelerated with the introduction of inexpensive NLEs optimized for DV production. Now the HDV format is poised to make its assault on professional HD systems. Leading the charge is Sony’s HVR-Z1U prosumer camcorder, which sells for $4,900. Unlike Sony’s consumer-level camcorder or JVC’s onechip model, the Z1U can record and play back HDV and DVCAM in all its flavors, including 60i, 50i, 30 frames, 25 or 24 frames. Its three 16x9 native CCDs (shooting at 1080i/60 fields) can produce beautiful HD video at 25mbit/sec. of bandwidth. It has two balanced XLR inputs (with separate audio controls) and produces SMPTE time code. NATAS offers you a unique opportunity to see this amazing new HDV camcorder at the 4th Annual San Francisco HD Seminar. The theme “HD for Everyone” means that this event is loaded with HD demonstrations. Inspect the world’s first HD DVD authoring system from Sonic Solutions.

Deirdre Fitzpatrick

Dan Adams

Nancy Osborne

NATAS governors have appointed a TV professional from Sacramento and promoted another from Fresno to fill two vacancies on the organization’s Northern California Board of Governors. At its January meeting, the governors unanimously approved the nominations of Deirdre Fitzpatrick of KCRA-TV in Sacramento and Nancy Osborne of KFSNTV in Fresno. Fitzpatrick fills the vacancy on the board created when Dan Adams of KXTV was named Sacramento vice president for NATAS’ Northern California chapter. Fitzpatrick is an anchor and reporter for the weekday morning and midday newscasts at KCRA. She has been at the NBC affiliate since arriving from KCCI in Des Moines, Iowa, in December 1999. Fitzpatrick has won regional Emmy awards in feature reporting and writing. She’s also an endurance athlete, having competed in the Boston Marathon as well as several “Ironman” triathlons. Osborne was appointed Fresno vice president, a post left open when former KGPE anchor Erik Rosales moved to the Bay Area. Osborne is an anchor and reporter at KFSN. She has been at the ABC affiliate since 1977, when the station hired her while she was a theater arts major in graduate school. Osborne has won two regional Emmy awards. The board is expected to appoint someone to fill Osborne’s governor’s seat on the board at its February meeting.

Every year our chapter awards scholarships to students enrolled in communications colleges and universities. In 2005 there are three $3,000 grants being offered in videography, production and new this year, reporting. College students with at least one year of school remaining are encouraged to apply. Applications can be downloaded from the Academy website, click on Foundation. The entry deadline is April 1, 2005. The scholar1 ships are named after individuals and organizations who have contributed greatly to the Television Academy: Peter J. Marino, Sheldon “Shelly” Fay, and Abrazos & Books/Rigo Chacon. Last year’s recipients have much to report since cashing their checks: Robert Harris, a UC Berkeley grad student, spent the summer working for Barbara Kopple at Cabin Creek Films in NYC, as a sound man and assistant producer on a documentary about an innovative school 2 in the Bronx. Since September he’s been doing preproduction on his own film, shooting news stories for Cal, and working as a TV lab TA and web designer. He just returned from shooting a thesis doc in Idaho on farm auctioneers and will be heading to LA to shoot on another doc about unschooled kids. The other recipient, Xiaoli Zhou, also at UC Berkeley, is thriving. Her recent letter to the Board of Governors describes a workload that most professionals would gasp at: 4 It’s such an honor for me to receive the scholarship! With the help of the award, I purchased a new iMac G5 so that I could edit my stories on Final Cut Pro at home. Also, part of the money helped cover some traveling expenses for my recent shoot in China. I took a crew to west China this summer filming a story on the last matriarchy society in the country. This is also a project funded by Frontline World as I was chosen as one of their journalism fellows this year. I also produced a profile TV feature on a Chinese American actor and movie director - Joan Chen who lives in SF with 6 her family right now. The nine-minute piece produced for my TV class this spring luckily won the “Good News Award” offered by the Sacramento Chapter of American Woman in Radio and Television. In addition, The Bay Area Chapter of Asian American Journalists Association has recently provided me with the Willie Kee Broadcast Scholarship. I think I’m really, really lucky to have received so much recognition and encouragement. All these awards will surely motivate and inspire me to further pursue the stories that I feel very passionate about. 8 Thank you very much again for bringing me the very first award. I can’t tell you how important it is to me and I’ll keep on working hard to produce better stories. Very best, Xiaoli

That money helped build homes and classrooms and has grown to assist hundreds of students in Mexico and the United States. A graduate of San Jose State University, Mr. Chacon joined KGO-TV in 1974 where he was General Assignment Reporter and South Bay Bureau Chief. He was responsible for opening the first Santa Clara County bureau of a 3 San Francisco-based TV station. Among his many honors, Mr. Chacon is a member of the Academy’s prestigious Silver Circle.

(Excerpts from Adam Housley’s daily journal, emailed from south Asia) January 5 The best way to describe Phuket is to compare it to the Hawaiian island of Kauai — plush, tropical, hot, humid and at one point a key vacation destination for millions of Europeans. Now the bazaars are empty, the tourist traps and hotels vacant. Everything from the beaches to two blocks inland has been gutted. Recovery efforts here are all but done, but the cleanup is just beginning for shopkeepers, restaurant owners and hotel managers. Cars that once teetered into the second story of a building have been removed. The smell is going away. More bodies can still be found in a few locations around Patong Beach because there are still scores buried. Some shops and first-floor hotels are still somewhat covered in sand and muck. But in a year, the only signs remaining from this horror will likely be seen during memorial services and in manmade reminders. We watch as truck after truck, military and private, delivers every type of non-perishable supply you can imagine. People from all walks of life — Christian, Jew, Muslim and Hindu — are here to help, in some cases forming human supply lines that toss bags full of rice into the truck beds. January 8 We had a chance to see some of the relief efforts here in Khao Lak on the mainland yesterday while taking a trip up and down the coast. Just down the road, about three miles south of our live location at the half destroyed Merlin Resort area, lies a bright red and shiny gold laced Buddhist temple. Blue taps stretched from the walls to tall stakes a few feet away cover piles of donated clothes and also a small food preparation area. About a dozen people work at various speeds and several dogs sleep in the foreground. The disturbing picture of this place sits right in front of the temple: there, stacks of thin white and natural wood coffins. By the hundreds, the monks and their helpers have made row after row. Now they sit empty, but soon to be filled as victims are

identified. There are still 3,500 bodies without identification and more are still unaccounted for. January 9 On our way back, through piles of rubble and fields of debris, I saw the picture that most tugged at my heart. There have been many pictures that I will never forget, the dead bodies on the dock in Phi Phi, the pictures of victims posted all throughout this region, the flattened villages and resorts, but it was a young girl who got me most. As our van left the leveled village of Nam Kem, I happened to look out to the window to my right...there with the help of her mother a young girl went to the bathroom...right along the road, right in front of a home that wearily withstood the tsunami. If only for a glance, you could see the heartbreak in their eyes. It hit me. I have a niece that age, a godson that age. These people have such a long struggle ahead. We leave Nam Kem behind. The young girl and her mother quickly disappear out the back window of our van, I can only hope their immediate future brings hope and a roof over their head. I dream of one day returning to this village to see it rebuilt and to see people back on their boats, working their businesses and living in their homes. January 10 There are volunteers from all over the world and in many cases their work can be considered grueling and gruesome. One family met me in Phuket more than a week ago. They happen to watch Fox and decided to say hello when they saw me walking in Patong Beach. After a few minutes I realized they had come to this region of the world for vacation and now that the tsunami had hit, they wanted to help. I suggested they stop at the island municipal building where volunteers were being sought and humanitarian efforts were being gathered. Now more than 9 days later I have come across the family again. This time here in Khao Lak, where they have spent their time finding bodies, moving rubble and now delivering food and water to those in need. Their trip turned out to be rewarding in a way none of them could have imagined, but also horrific. The pictures of devastation will never leave their minds. continued on page 5

Off Camera, February 2005, page 4


continued from page 4 January 12 As the rebuilding and relief begins, the despair continues for thousands of families around the globe. There are so many names. There’s the former roommate of a co-worker presumed dead, her boyfriend back here in Thailand searching for her remains. Then there’s the uncle and the cousin of Dianna Trumm. I met them at an Internet cafe as they continue to search for the 26 year-old, taken by the tsunami from here in Khao Lak. They are from Monterrey Mexico and their family, which stretches from North America to Germany, is counting on them to find closure, their task a gruesome and sad calling that no one could ever wish upon their worst enemy. For those who survived, jobs are hard to come by. Many fields along the coastline have been destroyed, ships reduced to piles of lumber spread over miles of low lying land. Tourist shops and shanty restaurants that sat on higher ground and were fortunate to survive the waters, now sit empty. Visitors that once came by the thousands from around the globe nowhere to be found, so workers now resort to scrapping. You can see the small Toyota and Mazda pickups piled like a scene from “The Grapes of Wrath.” At the Thai Naval Base here in Khao Lak, a frigate now calls the beach home, its bow the only part that touches the teal blue Andaman Sea waters. All around the village that once neighbored the base is largely left in ruins. People scrap in the foreground as a majestic sun sets over an island just off shore. In the foreground devastation, but in the distance remarkable beauty.

January 14 One of my friends who is also a co-worker had a birthday. We got cakes made and all enjoyed a time together, if only for a few minutes. We invited some staff from this half-demolished hotel, they have been incredible during our time here in Khao Lak, but they were too afraid to come back after dark. It seems they believe ghosts now walk the beaches and haunt this one-time paradise. There remains so much to recover here, much of it will never be seen. The pictures may fade from our memories and from your television sets, but they will never disappear for those who saw the destruction. At times it seemed everywhere we looked there were bodies, or people searching for them. Victims of all ages, of all colors, from all nations...children swept from the arms of their desperate parents. In some places the smell of death was unbearable, the look of despair...heartbreaking. The destruction...of biblical proportions. But everywhere we traveled throughout this devastated region we found stories of hope and faith, we discovered a human spirit that couldn’t be overrun by Mother Nature.

The NATAS Northern California Chapter has $2,000 burning a hole in our collective pocket. We’re looking for four members who want to better themselves with formal mid-career training. The only catch is, you must apply by March 1st. Each year, the chapter awards four $500 grants, one in each geographic area: San Francisco Bay Area, San Jose/Salinas-Monterey, Sacramento/Fresno-Modesto, and Chico-Redding/Eureka/Reno/Hawaii. To qualify, you must be an active, regional, or life member of the Northern California NATAS chapter, have worked full time for at least five years in some aspect of the television industry, and been employed in the industry within the previous year. Your grant request must be for formal instruction at a recognized or certified educational institution. The grant is paid directly to that institution on your behalf. If there’s more than one qualified applicant within a given region, that grant will be awarded by lottery. One of last year’s winners, Keith Sanders, related the following story: “After being laid off by KICU-TV at the end of 2003, I decided to learn new video production skills. I applied for and received a $500 mid-career grant from NATAS which paid for most of my AfterEffects I & II classes at BAVC. This new knowledge was put to good use several months later when I designed an AfterEffects open for the Computer History Museum’s Fellow Awards show.” If you have the time and desire to learn a new skill, NATAS has some money to help you. Applications are available on the NATAS website: www.emmysf.tv under the “Membership section.”

San Francisco - Feb. 14th

Dan Rosenheim

Steve Poitras

KPIX CBS 5 has promoted two of its managers to high-level positions. In late January, KPIX General Manager Ron Longinotti named news director Dan Rosenheim as the station’s Vice President of News. Rosenheim will continue his role as news director while he takes on the other responsibilities in his new post. Longinotti also promoted Director of Creative Services Steve Poitras to station manager of UPN Bay Area. Poitras will oversee all non-sales operations at the UPN affiliate.

The weekday and weekend evening newscasts now look a bit different at KPIX-TV. The CBS affiliate in San Francisco has moved Juliette Goodrich from its Saturday and Sunday evening newscasts to its Monday-Friday 5 p.m. news. Goodrich takes the slot once anchored by Kate Kelly, who is now doing special reports at KPIX. To replace Goodrich, KPIX executives have moved Ann Notarangelo from her weekend morning anchoring duties to the Saturday and Sunday evening newscasts, where she joins co-anchor Doug Murphy. Sue Kwon is filling in for Notarangelo on KPIX’s weekend morning newscasts with co-anchor Bill Schechner.

Drama and Kids/Family 1 hr. 54 min. This is the true story of Tony Fingleton, a young man from a troubled family who found the inner strength to become a champion. Set in 1950s Brisbane, Australia, the family drama centers on Tony, a young man who beats the odds to become a champion swimmer in spite of his overbearing, alcoholic father and long-suffering, but quietly heroic mother. Overshadowed in his father’s eyes by his brothers, it’s only when Tony displays an extraordinary swimming talent that he feels he has a shot at wining his father’s heart — and maybe even Olympic gold.

This year’s Small Business Tax Seminar was held at the Bay Area Video Coalition (BAVC) in San Francisco on Thursday, January 27, 2005. As usual, there was a medium-sized, but very involved group of business owners and freelancers who were moved to their foundations by what Jim Spalding, man of the evening, was telling them. In fact, he had some groupies who fol2 lowed him out after the seminar was long over! Jim covered a lot in this seminar. He went over the definitions of business entities and what made them 4 distinct from one another: Sole Proprietorships, Limited Liability Partnerships, Corporations, etc. He also covered the definition of an Independent Contractor versus an Employee. Other areas of great interest were: Sales Tax, Starting Your Own Business, Deductibles, Tax Forms and Audits.

Thank you to Jim Spalding for generously donating his time to teach this important seminar each year! It is a great public service to the media community! Thanks also to BAVC for providing a perfect venue for this annual event. For more tax information, contact Jim Spalding at: cpaspaldg@aol.com or (415) 337-6799.
