AP Senior Producer Jeff Schaeffer, video journalists Nico Garriga, Alex Turnbull and Helena Alves and reporter Sylvie Corbet employed strategic planning and dogged source building to ensure that AP’s Paris team had unique top shots and close-up access to film and photograph mounting protest violence in France, and capture the scale of a movement increasingly angry at President Emmanuel Macron.   

AP’s coverage has led websites and newscasts around the world. France staff produced hundreds of photos over last week from seven cities across the country — nearly 50 stories or writethrus, from the no-confidence motions in parliament to the mounting protests to the surprise cancellation of King Charles’ first foreign visit as monarch. Our more than 30 video packages have drawn thousands of Teletrax hits from customers.
