UNC Multimedia Bootcamp
May 17-22, 2009
The 8th annual UNC Multimedia Bootcamp will be May 17-22, offering a one-stop opportunity to re-tool and gain skills needed to be competitive. This intensive, weeklong workshop is designed for professional journalists who want to explore various forms of multimedia storytelling and how they work together to create a cohesive package.
The program includes training sessions on project planning, audio and video collection and editing, Flash animation and production, and ActionScript basics for journalists. Participants will go hands-on to collect and edit content, which they will use to produce a full-featured multimedia presentation. While the workshop draws news photographers and visual journalists, reporters, web developers and others new to multimedia are welcome.
The workshop is sponsored by the School of Journalism and Mass Communication and all sessions are taught in state-of-the-art labs in the School’s Carroll Hall on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Tuition is $1,200, which includes instruction with industry leaders, use of a dedicated Mac workstation, access to the latest A/V equipment and software, lunch daily and the opening dinner.
The workshop is limited to the first 20 paid registrants. For more information, please visit http://bootcamp.jomc.unc.edu/ or call toll-free 1.877.668.0674.
