For 2017, one of my goals is to challenge my students to produce higher quality journalism videos. About five years ago, I gave myself five years to get video going or fully incorporated into the production cycle. It hasn’t been a steady climb upward, but more of a roller coaster based on student interest and abilities.
To get inspired for 2017 I did make the following Flipboard magazine and will be incorporating lessons on b roll, editing, using lower thirds, adding logos or branding, and doing voice overs. Also, I encouraged students to download the Spark Post and Spark Video apps to create text on images and videos.
