Video Journalism Beyond The One Man Band Mass Communication And Journalism

Video Journalism Beyond The One Man Band Mass Communication And Journalism

Video journalism, the process by which an individual shoots, writes and edits video for broadcast or the Internet, is a form of news gathering that permeates news channels of all kinds by professionals and would-be citizen journalists around the world. Some proponents have hailed it as an improved narrative form, one that enhanced the more intimate, emotional documentary techniques used as a conventional television. His critics simply view it as a way of making the news.

This book presents more than two years of ethnographic research in a variety of contexts in the United States and the United Kingdom, including local newspapers, The New York Times, local television, the BBC, the Voice of America radio network, and several professional photography workshops.

Review

Video journalism is a rare investigation at this time, demonstrating the breadth and flexibility that the field itself demands. If you wanted to gain a thorough understanding of this discipline, your storyboard would necessarily combine the technical, practical, commercial, historical, ethical, professional, and aesthetic aspects. Mary Angela Bock has run down the script and takes a look at visual journalism as a snapshot. But more elaborate and precise is the functioning of a discipline in a permanent state of flux

Are an investigation at this time to the width and the field itself requires? If you wanted to gain a thorough understanding of this discipline, your storyboard would necessarily combine the technical, practical, commercial, historical, ethical, professional, and aesthetic aspects. Mary Angela Bock has run down the script and takes a look at visual journalism as a snapshot. However, it makes the functioning of a discipline more artistic and precise.
