Crisis on Campus - This is a realistic re-creation of what a major news story, revolving around a college campus crisis, would be like. Compelling in its realism, this DVD covers everything from the "shooter" and his hostages, to SWAT teams, student and faculty reactions. Using 40 minutes of rushes, the tape shows how a real campus disaster would be covered.
All facets of such a drama are employed - the included footage shows complete coverage by the two news teams, aerial footage from the helicopter and "shaky-cam" coverage from the home video camera. Interviews include the University Chancellor, the Director of Campus Police, the SWAT Team coordinator and Public Information Officer, friends and relatives of the perpetrator and the hostages and students caught in the crossfire.
Former ABC foreign correspondent and anchor Richard Anderson reviews the film and shows how the elements are brought together to provide a successful news story.
