So you want to be a video journalist?


Think you have what it takes to be able to shoot, edit and present all your own material? The development of cameras and production equipment over the past few years has meant that it is not uncommon to see one person taking on the role of an entire production crew. Video journalist Matt Danzico took a break from travelling the globe with BBC Pop Up to tell us why he finds his job so rewarding, and what a not-so-average day looks like for him. Danzico explains that although it is easy for a novice to learn the practical techniques of video journalism, the profession requires a large amount of skill and dedication to perfect.

What is B-roll? | Video Journalism Basics


If you wonder, "What is Broll?" or "How do I film example footage?" This video should answer all of your questions. In film and television production, B-roll, B roll, B-reel or B reel is supplemental or alternative footage intercut with the main shot. The term A-roll referring to the main footage has fallen out of use, but we still call the alternative footage B-roll. In Television News, the job of a photojournalist (or photographer) is to go out in the world and capture video of supplemental footage for the editors to cut into a news story. Many times the reporter will go with you and participate in the act of news gathering, other times you will be asked to venture out alone. Films and videos may cut away from the main story to show related scenery or action. Establishing shots may be used to show the audience the context of the story. These secondary images are often presented without sound, or with very low level sound, as the sound from the primary footage is expected to continue while the other images are shown. The various shots presented without sound are called B-roll. B-roll may be shot by smaller second unit crews, since there is no need for sound. In electronic news-gathering (ENG) and documentary film projects, B-roll footage is often shot after the main interview is shot, to provide supporting scenes for what was said by the interview subject. In a docudrama project, B-roll may refer to dramatic re-enactment scenes staged by the producer and performed by actors, to be used as cutaway shots. There are many different types of B-roll, including: insert shots, FX shots, establishing shots, stock footage, and pickup shots. B-roll footage may be added to or drawn from a stock footage library. Camera coverage, or coverage, is the amount and kind of footage shot used to capture a scene in filmmaking and video production. The film editor uses coverage in post-production to assemble the final cut. Coverage shots are needed because the long take master shot looks static and stagey to modern audiences. The establishing shot is one kind of coverage shot. It helps to place the viewer in a physical context, and avoid a claustrophobic feel to the film. Cutaway shots are considered part of coverage. These are images other than the principal action or dialogue. "A cutaway can be a reaction shot, what a character is seeing, a piece of the environment, or an object."Cutaway shots can be used when coverage is lacking, but they can also be integral elements of coverage designed to implement the visualization of the scene. The cut-in/cut-out shot is another useful coverage shot. After the master shot is taken, a medium shot from the same angle is photographed. The editor can cut back and forth between the two shots. The cut-in or cut-out helps to cover the edit when dialogue is edited out ("compressed"), can be used by the director or editor to choose the best performance by an actor, and can even serve as a form of match cut that serves to place action in context. While coverage is generally thought of in terms of shots and angles, coverage may also include the use of different focal lengths.

Left to Right Rule | Video Journalism Storytelling Techniques


What is the lead room? I call it the left-to-right rule. A photojournalist working in TV News goes over proper interview framing in this round of Video journalist storytelling techniques. In photography, filmography and other visual arts, lead room, or sometimes nose room, is the space in front, and in the direction of, moving or stationary subjects. Well-composed shots leave space in the direction the subject is facing or moving. When the human eye scans a photograph for the first time it will expect to see a bit in front of the subject. For example, moving objects such as cars require lead room. If extra space is allowed in front of a moving car, the viewer can see that it has someplace to go; without this visual padding, the car's progress will seem impeded. Additionally using this left to right method, you can help save yourself in the edit. When you are editing a news story, aka putting together a pkg, it can be tricky from a visual standpoint if you only film all of your interviews from one direction. That's why it's important to vary the directions and lead-rooms you give your subjects. Try to keep a count in your head, how many rights, and how many lefts have you filmed so far? Try and keep them balanced so you can more easily cut from one interview to another.

What are Journalism Ethics?


Journalism ethics comprise standards and codes of conduct journalists and journalistic organizations aspire to follow. Principles of ethical journalism vary from place to place and context to context. The ability of journalists to adhere to ethical norms depends heavily on a constellation of often competing interests and forces they cannot control, including government interference, economic realities and technical limitations. However, standards typically include accuracy, objectivity, transparency, accountability, comprehensiveness, fairness and diversity.

Citizen Journalist Arrested and Prosecuted for His Reporting


Justin Pulliam was standing still when a Fort Bend County deputy walked up and arrested him for interfering with the police in December 2021. While Justin had permission from the property owner to record a mental health call and was far from the active scene, the deputy cuffed him and put him in a squad car. Justin was forced to undergo a strip search and spent several hours in jail, during which the Sheriff personally called Justin in for a meeting and became angry when Justin refused to speak to him without a lawyer present. This was not the first time that Justin had problems with the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office. In July 2021, Justin was excluded from a press conference at Sheriff Eric Fagan’s explicit direction. The First Amendment prohibits government officials from unreasonably restricting an individual’s right to record the police, and it doesn’t let them decide who is or isn’t a journalist. Today, Justin filed a federal lawsuit against the Sheriff and his deputies with the Institute for Justice (IJ), a non-profit public interest law firm that defends free speech nationwide. “Arresting and prosecuting Justin is a violation of his First Amendment rights, and it can’t stand,” said IJ Attorney Tori Clark. “The Sheriff may not like Justin’s style, but the government doesn’t have the power to single out journalists because they don’t like their viewpoint.” Justin believes that local government has the greatest impact on our daily lives and that our freedom depends on its transparency and accountability. He reports on everything from city council meetings to vehicle accidents—events that traditional media outlets typically do not cover. His videos are uploaded onto his YouTube channels, such as Corruption Report, and other social-media sites. “Sheriff Fagan is unfairly discriminating against me because I sometimes criticize the police and other government officials,” said Justin. “It’s outrageous that I was harassed, arrested and prosecuted for exercising our constitutionally protected rights to film and report about activities by public officials from a different perspective. Filming the police makes communities safer and increases accountability.” Journalism and political commentary like Justin’s are at the heart of the First Amendment. Justin gathers information about, broadcasts, and reports on government officials’ public activities. Independent journalists like Justin are increasingly stepping into gaps left by traditional media outlets in recent years. The lawsuit seeks to protect Justin’s First Amendment rights in two ways. First, the public is allowed to record police subject only to reasonable restrictions. Again, Justin was far from interfering with police activities. Second, government officials cannot treat independent journalists differently from members of the established media or other members of the public. The deputy who arrested Justin singled him out from others on the scene just because Justin was recording. And the Sheriff excluded Justin from the press conference, which occurred at a public park, while choosing to answer questions from other news crews on site. “Filming the police and other officials conducting public business is good for everyone,” said IJ Senior Attorney Jeff Rowes. “It protects the public from police abuse, and it protects the police from false accusations of wrongdoing. We want to protect the rights of Justin and every other American to document government officials.” Background music via 🤍
