In this fast-moving, practical and hands-on course, students will gain basic skills for reporting and producing a video news story across all media platforms. The course includes ethical reporting, interviewing, script writing, shooting with smart phones and cameras, professional video editing techniques and talent performance. These are skills required for most entry level journalism jobs in TV and digital (internet & mobile) as well as print and professional blogs. Communications jobs, public relations and many small businesses now also require media production skills. Beyond job skills, news organizations now depend on 'citizen journalists' - everyday viewers and readers - to upload useable eyewitness video and photos from their smart phones to news websites and social media.
