Thanks to the efforts of Melanie Eversley, treasurer of the Digital Journalism Task Force and a rewrite editor at USA Today, DJTF will hold its first webinar on Friday, Oct. 29 starting at 11:30 a.m. Eastern time. The webinar is entitled “A picture can be worth a thousand words: How journalists from a print background can successfully incorporate video into their work.”
This webinar will help journalists who are new to or curious about video learn how to approach their stories when visuals are introduced into the mix. No longer are you looking for the source who knows the most and who can explain it best in words; you’re now searching for the visual that will best explain what you’re trying to convey. At first, it can be a challenge, but it also can be very freeing and will enhance your work, according to the panelists for this webinar.
The panelists are:
- Andria Carter, online editor, The Trentonian
- Marisol Bello, general assignment reporter, USA Today
- Leslie Smith, video editor, USA Today
- Isaiah Poole, executive editor, Institute for America’s Future
