Video Storytelling Workshop (NPPA & Poynter)

The Poynter Institute and the National Photographers Press Foundation are again teaming up to present a day-long event that will help you be a better videojournalist: Video Storytelling Workshop: 2010 Edition

Mark your calendar: Saturday, September 25, 2010, starting at 10:00am ET.

They're offering four hour-long presentations with a Q&A session, and you can take it on-site at Poynter's campus in St. Petersburg, Florida, or online in your own home or office.

"The online live event will be available to everyone who enrolls, even if you choose to join us on-site and at the last-minute can't make it. Everyone will have access to the live virtual presentations and posted replays, even if you stay the whole day with us or just join us for a session or two. Each presentation will be sold separately after the live event. Your registration will give you access to the replay plus our bonus resources."

Cost is $65, with discounts for NPPA members.

Learn how to be today's savvy video journalist. Produce creative stories while making immediate deadlines, multitasking as a solo reporter, covering the same-old-story assignments, and managing nonconventional devices to get the story done.

This is your opportunity to learn from veteran journalists who are successful at handling new technology and adapting to new reporting practices, all while staying creative.
A complete roster of presenters and topics will be posted soon on the NPPA and Poynter's News University Websites. So far, Darren Durlach has committed to returning as an instructor this year. Durlach is a photojournalist at WBFF-TV in Baltimore, Md., and winner of the 2009 Ernie Crisp Television News Photographer of the Year.
