My SXSWi: video journalism
I certainly enjoyed my trip to Austen’s South By Southwest Interactive festival where thousands of social media and Web 2.0 enthusiasts gathered for five days to share ideas and information. Oh and have fun. And, we mere mortals get to brush shoulders with some of the industry’s biggest names.
It was a lecture on video journalism given by David Dunkley Gyimah, a pioneer vj, former BBC and C4 journalist and a lecturer at Westminister University and editor of viewmagazine.tv.
He took us through a history of video journalism and explained the art of storytelling. When asked about the credibility of reporting by citizen journalists, David admitted there are issues. But, he said, that journalism is in a state of flux. “It will sort itself out over time,” he said.
