Online Journalism Workshop 2010

Online Journalism Workshop 2010

So, this is a bit late, but I wanted to share the great work of the students in the Online Journalism Workshop that I co-teach with Professor Mike Shanahan at GW’s School of Media and public Affairs.

Much thanks to all of the students who gave their all to these pieces.

Everything Went Black

This video created by Zach Hanover, Alex Holt, Samantha Honig and Julie Hyman, generated a good deal of class discussion in SMPA-112 Intro to Digital Media this Spring.

I was mixed on all of the “stylistic” things that the students tried here, but they were well thought out, and maintained the emotional impact . . . still, it was interesting to get the diversity of views on what they did. In the end, for me, I think you should only put so many spices in the stew, or it may be over seasoned.

More to the point, see what you think:

Policom @ 25 Student Video

I was quite impressed with this video that Joe Sangiorgio and Mike Stone produced in SMPA-112 Introduction to Digital Media. It’s worth noting that the team had a respectable cut to screen on 2 days after the event – great job guys!
