Video Now: A report of the Tow Center for Digital Journalism
From October, 2013 until February, 2014, Video Now  visited newsrooms across the United States to interview and observe reporters and editors producing video journalism. It set out to answer three main questions:
⋅ How do news organizations define video?
⋅ How do they produce video?
⋅ What is their return on investment?
Take a look to see what their findings were.

Nice job! You should work a bit more on this... I see the ideas that you have, but others might not get your points. If you want to actually make people share your ideas and think critically about consumerism, etc. then you need a better story structure... a beginning/middle/end or story arc and probably a few other things as well. Contact me at cgallant@hilbert.edu if you are interested in learning more. Keep up the good work!

Great led lighting options for videojournalists!
Guest post Slavik Boyechko: For many doc shooters, light kits are the bane of single shooter, portable filmmaking. Our cameras, lenses, audio, and support systems can fit into a small backpack, but...

Jeez, my wife and I went to Edinburgh in 2009 from Manchester, where her sister was going to school. We had a great time, but you're making me a bit regretful that we didn't go out to the country. Great Vlog entry, and of course you've made this city a place to revisit for us. Like your work and reviews, so keep up the good work.
