Anita Velez: Dancing Through Life - L.A. TV News Anchor Presents An Original Digital Video Documentary Debuting On IFILM.com


" Velez-Mitchell uses cutting edge streaming media technology to take the world along on her inner voyage of self-discovery. "

(INTERNET WIRE) -- Los Angeles television news anchor Jane Velez-Mitchell turns the camera on herself in a bold and unique journey. Velez-Mitchell uses cutting edge streaming media technology to take the world along on her inner voyage of self-discovery. This technique heralds a trend in using the web and new digital media tools to share personal life experiences and histories with global audiences in a way that has been a practical impossibility up until now. "The Internet has created a new generation of digital video artists who are bypassing the traditional pathways and telling their stories directly to the audiences who elect to download them," said Velez-Mitchell.

"Anita Velez: Dancing Through Life" is a 31 minute family exploration that premieres today as the featured documentary on the much talked about Internet film site www.ifilm.com.

Velez-Mitchell went on this journey to explore and understand her mother's mysterious past. Anita Velez, a Puerto Rican former circus and vaudeville performer, now eighty four years old, has managed to continue literally "dancing through life." Velez-Mitchell, trying to piece together a murky past, takes her mother back in time to a place that sheds light on family secrets and helps Velez-Mitchell come to terms with her own life.

Velez-Mitchell spent three years following and interviewing her mother for the documentary "Anita Velez: Dancing Through Life." It is her first foray into the documentary genre, but she has been writing, producing and reporting in the television news business for more than 20 years.

Currently, Velez-Mitchell anchors and reports at KCAL-TV, Channel 9 in Los Angeles, where she has worked for the last ten years. Previously, she worked as a weekend anchor and reporter at WCBS-TV, Channel 2 in New York. She has also worked at news stations in Philadelphia, Minneapolis and Fort Myers, Florida.

Velez-Mitchell was born and raised in New York, graduating from New York University with a degree in Broadcast Journalism. She has won numerous awards for her work, including local Emmys and Golden Mike awards.

Over the years she has covered a wide variety of watershed events including several Papal tours, the L.A. riots, the O.J. Simpson trial and Princess Diana's funeral in London. Velez-Mitchell has reported live during hurricanes in Puerto Rico, reported from India after a major earthquake there and traveled to Armenia after a devastating quake rocked that region of the world.
