GIJC15 and SKUP are offering an exclusive masterclass in mobile-journalism video making on Saturday, October 10, between 11.00 and 14.00 at the Global Conference. This is a three-hour workshop that requires registration – on a first come first served basis. It is for a maximum of 40 participants. This is a practical mojo workshop and you’ll need an iPhone loaded with the iMovie app.
About the Mojo Masterclass
As journalism becomes increasingly competitive, mainstream or community journalists need a broader digital storytelling skill set. They especially need to know how to mojo – to use smart devices to create user-generated stories (UGS). The Smartmojo 101 Guerrilla Workshop is a three-hour fast track introduction to mobile journalism. Participants will learn how to shoot a basic sequence, use natural light, receive tips on recording clean audio, and learn how to edit this into a short UGS—all on their iPhone. You’ll need a phone, loaded with the iMovie App. Go Mojo!
