Newspaper video experts: What they’re doing
We hosted a panel discussion about video on newspaper Web sites on July 3 (part of UF’s Institute on Journalism and Media). Thanks to our college’s Web administrator, Craig Lee, the two-hour video of the panel is now online, broken into four roughly equal chunks:
- Introduction and presentation by Chuck Fadely (photojournalist and videographer at The Miami Herald, and blogger at Newspaper Video)
- Presentation by Regina McCombs (videographer and multimedia producer at the Star Tribune in Minneapolis)
- Presentation by Chet Rhodes (videographer and trainer at washingtonpost.com)
- Questions and discussion (all panelists)
I went through all the tape and logged it, so you can nip in and find the bits that interest you most. The logs are on each page, just below the video player.
The video is Flash video (thanks, Craig!), so you shouldn’t have any trouble if you’re trying to watch it behind a corporate firewall.
Our audience for this panel was 18 journalists and journalism educators from 18 different countries, so the panelists explained what is being done with video in each of their newsrooms, showed some examples, and talked about training and workflow.
