As more newspapers and broadcast news outlets transition online, reporters and photojournalists are being asked to provide more and more video for their stories. This book teaches students and professional journalists how to shoot better video and tell better stories on the web. Creating multimedia video journalism requires more than simply adapting traditional broadcast journalism techniques, so Kurt Lancaster provides students with a strong understanding of cinematic storytelling and documentary production in order to make their videos stand out. This book introduces students to all of the basic skills and techniques of good video journalism and documentary storytelling, from shots and camera movements to sound and editing. Shooting exercises throughout the book ask students to put these techniques into practice. Case studies and interviews with multimedia video journalists also offer real-world perspectives on a career in news video.
