Small cameras can tell big stories

Jul 12, 2008

Description:


Robb Montgomery reporting from Niagara Falls, Canada. The ability to tell really big stories with really small cameras is something that is fascinating to share with colleagues. I work with editors-in-chief and their staff in many newsrooms and classrooms around the world to develop training and design new workflows and the challenge is to not only raise the quantity, the number of videos a newsroom is able to post online, but the quality of those stories as well. Web video is an incredibly rich medium, one that print-trained journalists can succeed in.
