Journalists Making a Film About Journalism

The trailer above is from a rough cut of the film Fit to Print–produced by a team of journalists that includes former New York Times staffer Adam Chadwick, former Baltimore Sun reporter Al Foreman, former Detroit Free-Press photo journalist Daymon Hartley and Murray Waas of Reuters.

“We’re hoping to give voice to the thousands of newsroom employees laid-off over the past several years,” Chadwick tells us, “while also examining the light at the end of the tunnel for the industry.”

Chadwick says he’s got plenty of behind-the-scenes footage of the LA Times. His team is currently searching for completion funds to finish the film.

Fit to Print: Covering The Decline Of The Newspaper Industry

Our colleagues at sister publication FishbowlLA pointed us to this trailer from a work-in-progress documentary about the newspaper industry, Fit to Print.

The 10-minute trailer features interviews with Columbia University’s Andie Turcher, The New York TimesTim Arango and Jason Fry, formerly of The Wall Street Journal and includes scary factoids like, “Newspaper jobs will decline by 25 percent by 2018,” and “In 2009 alone, over 15,000 people lost their job in the newspaper industry.”

The documentary is being produced by a group of journalists and a videographer, including Adam Chadwick, a former copy editor at The New York Times who saw his job “evaporate” at the end of last year.

The trailer opens up with CJR’s Andie Tucher saying,”The distinction we don’t need newspapers because we’re getting everything online is kind of like saying we don’t need farmers because I buy all my food at the supermarket. It has to come from somewhere.”

The project fit to print includes Adam Chadwick of the NYTimes, freelancer Vincent Valk, Bill Loerch and Sam Weisberg.
