Doctorate from University College Dublin.  

The 90s saw the introduction of videojournalism, however video journalism was first recorded in the 1950s, except it was a different form. What was  a new style in the 1994 by a UK newspaper group broke previous television rules, but was grossly misunderstood by networks.

When they did adopt videojournalism they dumbed it down.  Yet the legacy of this form is now seeing new light in its previous artistic language which mimiced cinema.

So called media technological innovations such as drone journalism, iPhone (mobile) journalism, Go Pros whilst they purport to be separate disciplines are integral to pioneering videojournalists' armoury  to create alternative and immersive news stories. 

In a 90, 000 page thesis, supported by scores of original and historical films across news, documentary and cinema, backed by interviews with leading figures in the field of broadcasting, documentary, news, my thesis ( turning into a book) which I look forward to sharing shows a creative methodology towards creating journalism stories that are memorable and compelling.

Among the interviewees are: Deborah Turness ( now President of NBC News), the late Robert Drew ( father of Cinema Verite) and Danfung Dennis (award winning filmmaker) To Hell and Back.

In all I interviewed 150 people. But the thesis also looks critically at my background from working in South Africa, from being one of the UK;s 1st videojournalists, to making films in Egypt, Tunisia, Lebanon and near the Syrian border. 

I look forward to sharing.

Some photos from Apple store night sharing the new style of journalism that has seen Vice, Mediastorm, rise to prominence. It tracks the pioneers such as Robert Drew and (in picture) Albert Maysles. The movement is analogous to changes experience in music, art and design
