Resources on Video Journalism

There are changing being forced by technology, opportunity and initiative. Video Journalism is one of the changes that is affecting professional television reporters.

I don't think that this necessarily a good or bad thing. The technology has brought about the ability to be flexible. Not every one embraces flexibility. This web site is a gate way to information and practicing professionals who are the one person band.

Here is an example/promotional video that I found at the web site. The reporter is David Dunkley Gyimah:

David has a web site called Viewmagazine.tv that shows examples of his work. He also has a blog where he talks about the craft and the realities of working as a solo journalist.

Hit the blog first - there is extraordinary stuff in his posts.
