It's Video Week at Poynter NewsU: Getting Ready for Video Storytelling Online Workshop


7:27 PM Oct. 05, 2011 — by Howard Finberg

On Saturday, Oct. 15, NPPA/NPPF teams us with Poynter NewsU for our third all-day video workshop, Video Storytelling with the Pros. It’s a Webinar. It’s a Webinar with a studio audience. It’s great teaching from four great teachers:

Al Tompkins will host each session and we’ll be bringing in questions from an online audience that’s getting larger every day. You register on Poynter NewsU and there's a discount for NPPA members and student members.

We love having an audience for this event, so if you live in the Tampa Bay area tell your friends. It runs from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 15, so folks should come in around 9:30 a.m. You can bring a lunch or buy one in advance.

As we ramp up to the workshop, all of the highlighted courses on the Poynter NewsU homepage have a video or broadcast theme. It’s a great collection of training, led by Al Tompkins' new course, Reporting, Writing for TV and the Web and capped by Robin Sloan’s upcoming Webinar, Twitter for Broadcast Producers and Reporters

Hope to see you online or in the audience. It is going to be a fun and educational day.
