Training Shopping Frenzy? Not at NewsU. We're Here to Help

We are almost finished with our special holiday training gifts. With video being so important -- and perhaps you'll receive a video camera -- there's no better way to learn the best video storytelling techniques than to listen to the professionals who do it every day.

That’s why as our holiday gift to you, we’re offering our Video Storytelling Workshop: 2010 Package for half off. In between shopping and wrapping, you’ll have the chance to learn how to produce creative stories, handle difficult assignments as a solo reporter and develop your narrative voice.

The Video Storytelling Workshop: 2010 Package, which includes four broadcast replays priced individually at $19.95, is available this week for just $32.50. Simply enter PTUES4WK50 at checkout. This package includes the following sessions:

Making Dull Stories Sizzle Make a mundane assignment into a memorable video story with Joe Fryer, photojournalists from KARE TV in Minneapolis, Minn.

Sound and Voice: Breathe Life into your Stories Improve your audio quality and increase your narrative voice with Jason Witmer, solo video journalist for Chron.com in Houston, Texas.

Covering Difficult Stories Solo Tell stories and stay safe as a one-man-band journalist covering stories about people in difficult situations with Lynn French, assistant chief photographer at KPNX-TV in Phoenix, Ariz.

Quick Quality News Stories Go-to video storytelling strategies on deadline with Darren Durlach, photojournalist at WBFF FOX45 Baltimore, Md.

The holidays come and go quickly, and so will this offer. It’s only good between now and December 28, 2010.
