Life Behind the Camera
For the past thirty years, Chuck Quinzio has been filming life on the streets of Chicago as a television news cameraman. 'Life Behind the Camera' is his vividly colorful memoir; a chronicle of the news stories of the last three decades, told from a cameraman's perspective. Stand alongside a young gangbanger lying on the streets of Chicago, struggling to stay alive. Chase down celebrities (Michael Jackson, Princess Diana, Michael Jordan, Harry Caray), politicians (Harold Washington, Rod Blagojevich), and criminals (including mob bosses). Cheat death as you hang out of a helicopter, or slink out of a housing project amid a flurry of flying bullets, or maneuver your way around the gruesome underbelly of Chicago. Hang out in Chicago's television newsrooms-and learn the behind the scenes machinations of assignment editors, reporters, news directors, anchors, and crew. Spend time with a network television news crew, flying into such hotspots as Iowa, Nebraska, and Ohio. And of course, experience the joy and splendor of the city of Chicago. Quinzio's storytelling paints a picture of Chicago and the television news business you'll never forget; tragic, gritty, frightening, and laugh-out-loud hilarious.
