Old stuff

April 25

Here’s a first take on the plan:

  1. Note how Canva embeds on WordPress.org but not WordPress.com
  2. Hand back Olson post and Canva/Excel graphics
  3. A reminder that due today are posts on mobile journalism (Group 4) and Lane DeGregory’s webinar on finding your voice

    Pulitzer Prize winner for feature writing

    Pulitzer Prize winner for feature writing – Tampa Bay Times

  4. Check in on final story package and reporting plan
  5. Back to video; update on gear for iPhone, noting this demo (and adapter explained), handout on video grading (rubric); some video links:
  • Video 101 from the Vimeo School
  • Shot selection from Vimeo
  • BBC’s 5-shot sequence from MulinBlog and Mattias Suessen
  • Media Storm’s 10 ways to improve your multimedia (open some of the examples)
  • My study of video formats published in the Journal of Visual Literacy, notably Table 1; study was based on student work from this class; note clips from “YouTube” and “MTV” versions
  • Possible look at/critique of some previous student videos
  • Possibly time to edit (we will do that next week; be sure to bring some video footage); I have quick demo from Adobe Premiere CC posted on Tech Stuff on the other blog

Break

In connection with the video, we will go over my condensed interviewing tips, Lane DeGregory’s 20 questions about character [both as handouts] and this KDMC presentation on difficult interview types. I also have some feature writing tips that we can hold till next week. Other topics we would have done include customized Google maps (here’s the explanation) and other projects from the Knight Lab at Northwestern, notably Timeline.js (extra credit for diving in and getting that in your final package!).
