Eric Seals Visual Journeys

The Paul R. Tregurtha at 1,013 feet long is the largest freighter that sails the Great Lakes.
She travels 1,580 miles between Metro Detroit and Superior, Wisconsin on Lake Huron and Lake Superior delivering 68,000 tons of coal to two power plants.
The crew of twenty three makes this trip 40 times a year.
Along the way they encounter all kinds of weather but they also get to take in the beauty of our Great Lakes.
I spent 6 1/2 days on the Tregurtha with my reporting colleague Jim Schaefer of the Detroit Free Press telling the stories of the ship and crew. This is part of their story.

Video storytelling can be powerful when done with a good story, great characters, striking visuals & a good editing. It takes viewers on a visual ride they'll enjoy & walk away with something from after watching it.

I'm a photo & video journalist for the Detroit Free Press which over the past few years has become a place known for great video storytelling from talented video journalists with over 23 Michigan Emmy Awards, 4 National Emmy Awards & a Webby Award for best online sports video of Courtney Hawkins.

In May of 2008 I started shooting video features for the paper & have since been shooting short/long form video storytelling & projects.

    Nice altitude Eric! A couple freshly charged Anti-Fog Inserts in the housing should eliminate any fogging potential on future flights. Looking forward to the next video!
