Carnival of Journalism: Online Video

8 Sep

This month’s host: Andrew Pergam. The note below comes from him.

***

I’m excited to host this month’s Carnival of Journalism around one key area of interest: the future of online video news.

Traditional newsrooms have had, in many ways, a complicated relationship with video:

*  Television networks and local stations. The broadcast side of the business brings in significantly more money than online video–a disparity which often influences staffing and workflow decisions.

Newspapers.  The written word has trumped other online content for decades.  Many have expanded by adding video journalists.  Their struggle is, how to incorporate video coverage into legacy workflows.

* Online-only publications. Video has not yet broken through as a sustainable endeavor, despite repeated attempts.That said, many news organizations are making great strides in incorporating video online in unique ways.So that leads to this month’s Carnival of Journalism question:  “What is the role of online video in the newsroom of the future?
Everyone’s welcome to participate.  Just write your response in the form of a blogpost on your own site and send your to the Carnival of Journalism list or email me personally by September 30 at 5 PM EDT.
You can also post your link as a comment to this post.If we all put our heads together, we’ll come up with something cool.  Looking forward to reading your responses.

Full disclosure: I’m working at one of those “newspapers” in Washington, D.C.  This #jcarn is related to that work only in that I’m interested in the topic of online news video as a whole.

    Why is learning (and teaching) video so hard for journalists?

      Andrew. Thanks so much for the credit and the ‘ink’. It is true that over the past 20+ years I have learned how to greatly simplify the production of high quality video – so much so that we can produce it about the same cost/effort point as print. We have greatly expanded upon the 5-shot method with respect to vastly simplified editing and storytelling. I would invite any #jcarn members to take a look at http://www.nyvs.com and http://www.guardianmediaacademy.com. If you’re interested in joining or attending I am happy to offer a 20% discount to any Carnival of Journalism participant. Just email me.
