DJTF Offers Free Webinar On Video For Print Journalists

By Benét J. Wilson, DJTF co-chair, Online Managing Editor-Business Aviation, Aviation Week Group

The NABJ Digital Journalism Task Force  and the NABJ Media Institute are pleased to hold its first-ever webinar, “Video Storytelling for Journalists,” on Friday, Oct. 29 starting at 11:30 a.m. Eastern time.

This is the first in what we plan to be a series of free webinars designed to help NABJ members and others in the journalism community get the skills needed to write and report the news across multiple platforms.  These webinars were made possible through the efforts of DJTF Treasurer Melanie Eversley, a rewrite editor at USA Today.  Through her efforts, DJTF was able to win a grant from the Gannett Foundation that helped pay for a year of webinar services.

And ironically enough, Eversley is the creator and leader of this first webinar.  This webinar is designed to help journalists who are new to or curious about video learn how to approach their stories when visuals are introduced into the mix. This 90-minute session will focus on everything from how to sequence your shots to how to approach your reporting when introducing a video layer into your work.

Webinar panelists include:

  • 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
