I made the news, but the video is in brightcove streaming format and I can't seem to capture it. I tried keepvid.com and realplay screencast, but not having much luck.

If anyone could successfully download the video for me so I could save a copy, I would be eternally grateful.

The best I could do is ok video and has the sound, but there's a high frequency squeal in it. If anyone could fix the audio, that would work as well. Here's the file I captured

p.s. If you go to http://www.tribtown.com they did a really nice article as well.

In my experience with cameramen, you can usually ask them to send you a copy of the story after it's been shown. They may ask you to sign a release of some sort agreeing not to modify the content or some such. You may get it on DVD or VHS but there are ways to get them into the formats you'd like.

Well, these same folks cover our haunted house every season and it has been like pulling teeth to get a copy in the past, but I plan to try.

p.s. I would like to clarify that in the interview when I mention my display being the first to utilize video and dmx lighting, I am answering a question about Southern Indiana only..

Let me tell you why it is getting harder to get copies. Two years ago I was given a VHS tape!!! Yup! Now the same station only stores their video on a main drive. They have no discs and not sure if they can even make them any longer. Same for another station that did a story on us. They keep it all in HD and the HD stuff is too expensive to reproduce so they just keep it on a main drive in case they ever need it.

Same story two different stations so I assume they are telling the truth.
