First commercial sale of news video, with a story, too

WATKINS GLEN, New York, USA - The Watkins Glen Review and Express (which has a sister newspaper, The Dundee Observer) picked up a story and video, put together by *subject2change Media.

The package was published Thursday - a 650-word story and a 3.5 minute video with titles.

The video was a quick take of two meetings about a massive propane storage project that has most of the community's collective knickers in a twist.

This is a first for the newspaper, and a good test of editing skills for *subject2change Media. Several area newspapers have been approached with the idea of adding video, but this is the first bite.

Here is a link to the story (which has the video embedded).
