Malcom Corp of Nine News Melbourne has won the 2022 TV Camera Work (Shot of the Year) Quill for “Wild Rampage”.
Malcom’s extraordinary aerial footage of a police pursuit of an armed, erratic driver, are like scenes from a Hollywood movie. With little information to go on, he tracked the driver from the air and steadily captured the chase from a high altitude, for long periods of time. He ensured he was in the right position at every opportunity, constantly tracking the car during the chase. The footage gave viewers dramatic insight into the breaking news event, showing the car driving on the wrong side of the road, going off road and eventually crashing into a fence. Malcom also captured the dramatic moment the driver was tackled and arrested by members of the special operations group. Malcom remained calm under pressure and the pooled footage led all news bulletins that night.
