The web has become the platform for the news, causing a sea change in the industry. The traditional print newspaper and evening news reign no longer; the public now demands their news online, and in a variety of formats. Increasingly, the online platform is used as a vehicle for a new kind of journalism involving video and multimedia aspects (audio slideshows, charts, maps, graphs, timelines, illustrations, blogs, etc). This textbook gives students a deep understanding of the underlying principles and techniques of journalism as practiced online, and immediately put them to use. Students will learn a whole new approach to storytelling - and discover how videojournalism story structure vastly differs from both text stories and photo stories. In lessons drawn from ancient Aristotle to modern-day Hollywood, "Videojournalism: The Professionals' Approach" presents and illustrates dramatic narrative arcs that students have seen (in fictional frameworks, such as novels and movies), and now need to learn how to adapt for their nonfiction videos. . Written by the highly regarded Photojournalism author, teacher and journalist Ken Kobre . Robust companion web site includes examples of the best web journalism; interviews with the leading practitioners; video tutorials that visually demonstrate not only technical aspects of shooting, audio, and editing, but also illustrate how to construct sequences and scenes . Covers the fundamental and enduring principals of JOURNALISM -- reporting, interviewing, writing, editing, and storytelling -- that will serve students well not only in producing quality videojournalism, but also throughout their careers -- despite the rapidly changing technology scene . Full-color and highly visual approach
