Vodpod videos no longer available.
I have to say that Matthew Roberts, the producer of this video about the closing of the newspaper, and the group of videographers that collaborated on this piece are all artists.
I’d like to think that if I was tasked with making a documentary about the demise of my own livelihood, that I’d have the drive to light people as thoughtfully as he did. Or maybe that I’d have the energy to edit a piece longer than twenty minutes. (The project is listed as having three editors, but “editor” means something different in newspaper-speak than it does in television.)
