“It’s all about storytelling” is the workshop slogan — and it was!
I just served on the faculty of the the NPPA NewsVideo workshop last week in Norman, OK — WOW! what an experience. Having been to and taught at some great workshops in the past, this one was pretty amazing.
All of you who think that television shooters are not the same storytellers as newspaper still folks are totally wrong. I have to say these folks in TV know their stuff. I can only strive to do good content like they do and I recommend any and all of you attend this workshop next year.
Now — to top it all off — Kudos to Meg Loucks, from The Houston Chronicle — Meg is the Multimedia Journalist there and she picked up the best video shooter award at this typically TV oriented workshop. WOW — what an honor for Meg!
Other websites that sent staffers to this workshop were The Star Ledger, The Denver Post, The Miami Herald, The Chicago Tribune, The Tulsa World, MSNBC, The Washington Post Newsweek Interactive, The Dallas Morning News and Newsday.
I expect and hope that many more will attend it next year. This is the workshop not to miss.
