Dear Ms. Nunez:

I write to request a license and broadcast-quality footage for use in a documentary film. The specific footage is:

September 11, 2001
9:02-9:03 a.m. EDT
WNYW Fox 5 source, carried across FOX network
"Chopper 5"

Footage begins with a wide shot over New Jersey, looking east toward the lower Manhattan skyline. Anchor Jim Ryan says ". . .as you look at the view from our chopper now arriving at the scene . . .". Camera zooms in, zooms more, then zooms a third time, framing the twin towers. The airplane enters the screen from the right side, crosses the screen right to left, and hits the tower. The tower begins to explode. There is a brief blackout, picture returns, the explosion grows.

"Handles" on each end would be great, say from 9:01 am to 9:04 am. If by chance the scene was recorded "raw", without the logo graphics, that would be ideal. Otherwise a copy with the FOX 5 logo graphics is acceptable.

I'm looking for a broadcast-quality beta copy, or similar quality digital file. An acceptable digital file would be at least 720 x 480 in size, interlaced, and uncompressed.

The documentary is an independent production, with no distribution deal. It is to be sold as a DVD, directly from a website.

Thank you for considering my request. If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask.

Sincerely,

Alex Baker

Hi Alex,
We need to know exactly what you are using the footage for and what the documentary is about before we can grant permission. There is also a cost involved.

Hi Isaura,

The documentary is about 9/11 conspiracy theories. As you may or may not know, there are some who claim that no plane struck the south tower. Others find that assertion patently ludicrous. Viewing the highest quality video (instead of lousy internet YouTube versions) would seem the most honest, best way to fairly study it.

Yes, I understand there is a charge. Let me know what it is.

Sincerely,

Alex Baker

Hi Isaura,

Why would that be? It wouldn't be because there's NO PLANE in the wide shot, would it? It wouldn't be because the nose of the airplane pops out of the back side of the building, would it? It wouldn't be because there's a fade to black, would it?

If nothing to hide, it would seem WNYW would wish to clear up its good name.

I seek answers to some reasonable questions . . .

Please feel free to forward this to your legal department, perhaps they have some answers.

Sincerely,
