Workshop: Masterclass in Mobile Journalism

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Mojo Masterclass – As journalism becomes increasingly competitive, professional and community journalists need a broader digital storytelling skill set particularly built around mobile (mojo) literacies.

Journalists need to know how to mojo and more specifically how to transform user generated content (UGC) into complete user generated stories (UGS) that are developed, shot, edited and published from location using a smart device.

The Smartmojo 101 Guerrilla Workshop is a three-hour fast track introduction to mobile journalism where participants will:

- define mojo praxis- be introduced to SCRAP (a digital storytelling language), - receive an overview on copyright issues- learn about the various hardware (smartphones, lights, cradles, microphones, tripods and a basic mojo kit)- learn about a series of functional apps for shooting, editing, post producing and transferring content- shoot a basic video sequence on a smartphone- learn about basic lighting using natural light- learn how to record clean audio - be introduced to principles of recording a video interview- record and edit narration- edit media into a short UGS using their smartphone- learn how to use and edit music- how to transfer material between devices- how to publish a story from their smart device

NOTE: This is a practical mojo workshop and you’ll need the following:- iPhone (with latest op system) or newish Android (running Snapdragon 808 or higher as this will enable use of a two video track edit app)- iPhone loaded with the iMovie edit app (free with latest phones otherwise $5)- Android loaded with the KInemaster edit app (free but subscription required to use without watermark)- Vont and Gravie apps for the iPhone (free)- iXpand and Airstash for iPhone and Airstash for Android (free).

Go Mojo!

Note: This is a two part workshop and is mandatory to attend the first part to be able to join the second one.
