Dr Samer Angelone
Video-journalism is one of the most rapidly expanding and exciting developments in the field of research communication: it is a form of journalism, where the reporter accomplishes many tasks, including pitching, developing and researching stories, producing, shooting, editing and presenting his/her news in a film format.In this workshop, we seek to challenge, inspire and train a new generation of researchers to find innovative, creative and journalistic ways of reporting research through film.
During the 2days workshop:
(PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS PART IS NOT COMPULSORY)
At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to prepare their own video-reports. In particular they will learn how to:
• Transform their research into appealing journalistic stories • Prepare scripts and storyboards
The workshop is for all doctoral candidates (both Social Science and Humanities, and Exact and Nature Sciences).
In the case you have already participated in the "Film-making for Scientists" workshops with Dr Angelone: please note that "Video-Journalism for Scientists" is 50% similar to the "Filmmaking for Scientists". The repeated part from the "Filmmaking for Scientists" workshop will be regarding to the technical part (cameras, lightings and editing software). The other 50% will be different from "Filmmaking for Scientists". It will be about journalism, script and storyboarding for video-journalism and practical part (video-reports).
