Learn to Make Video News Stories at the Broadcast and Video Bootcamp

Advisers and staff  now have the perfect opportunity to learn how to create video news stories for their online publication or broadcast journalism program: The Broadcast and Video Bootcamp.

This hands-on workshop is a pre-convention session being offered at the NSPA/JEA National Convention in San Antonio on November 15th, 2012.

In this day-long workshop, beginning and intermediate students will learn the fundamentals of creating an effective news package from the ground up. This includes videography, sound recording, editing and story structure.

Working in small teams, participants will spend the morning developing their videography skills and planning a story, and the afternoon shooting and editing that story.

Instructors will be Don Goble from Ladue Horton Watkins High School, St. Louis, Mo. and Michael Hernandez from Mira Costa High School, Manhattan Beach, Calif.  Don recently conducted the successful video seminars at the JEA Adviser Institute in July.  Both Don and Michael advise nationally award-winning broadcast journalism programs and are Apple Distinguished Educators.

Participants must provide their own video cameras, tripods, microphones and laptops with editing software. Please test and become familiar with your own equipment before attending the session as the presenters may not be familiar with your specific hardware and software.

The cost is $30 and the seminar is limited to 30 participants.

To register for the session, mail in the hard copy NSPA/JEA convention registration form or complete the online registration form.
