Mobile Journalism Workshop with Jack Soper

The smartphone is a powerful tool for journalists and content producers.  From capturing and sharing photos, audio and video to editing content and live streaming, smartphones can complement and augment traditional ways of recording and sharing stories.

This workshop offers an introduction to mobile journalism, covering video, audio, editing, sharing and more. It provides practical tips for getting the best out of your smartphone and discusses a range of apps and accessories to consider.

Content includes:

  • practical tips for good video and audio coverage
  • filming basic sequences, framing and editing
  • recording interviews
  • outputting and sharing content

Workshops combine directed learning with practical exercises and group discussion and are targeted at professionals wishing to use their smartphone to cover events, unleash their creativity or simply get the most from the device in their pocket.

Participants leave with an overview of the skills needed to start creating high quality content using a smartphone.
