Poynter's Video Storytelling Workshop (9/25)

Reminder to all videojournalists to tune in at 10 a.m. (ET) this Saturday for the 2010 edition of Poynter's Video Storytelling Workshop, brought to you by Poynter's NewsU and the National Press Photographers Foundation.

In this full day of training, veteran photojournalists will show you how to find and develop memorable characters; how to make mundane stories -- like meetings and weather stories -- more interesting; and how to anticipate moments in the field, even on tight deadlines.

Darren Durlach, NPPA's 2009 Ernie Crisp Television News Photographer of the Year, and senior photojournalist at WBFF-TV in Baltimore;

Lynn French, assistant chief photographer and veteran multimedia journalist at KPNX-TV in Phoenix ;

Jason Witmer, winner of numerous NPPA and Texas AP awards for his work as a solo videojournalist for Chron.com in Houston;

Joe Fryer, winner of four national Edward R. Murrow awards and a regional Emmy for best reporter in 2009, of KARE-TV in Minneapolis

The host is Poynter's Al Tompkins.

On your computer, you can see and hear the presentations and join the interactive discussion -- asking and answering questions posed by the speakers. Your advance registration will give you online access to the replays of each presentation when they become available.

Tuition is $65, with discounts for NPPA members and students.
