Here’s some cool stuff to check out regarding video training.

Mindy McAdams attended a cool-sounding video training session at ONA. She’s sharing some tips that she learned.

  • Set up a pace that suits the story. Return to an idea again and again, instead of just putting “bookends” of narration on the front and back of a piece.
  • Use straight cuts, no transitions. Exceptions: fade in your lower-thirds, and your end credits.
  • Use a voiceover narration when it’s needed.
  • Keep it simple. “I believe that less is more,” he said.

US: Newspapers “dropping ombudsmen left and right”

A recent special report by Editor & Publisher discussed the declining numbers of ombudsmen working for newspapers. In an effort to cut costs, many newspapers in the United States have been laying off ombudsmen.

Newspaper ombudsmen are public editors and reader representatives; they deal with readers’ concerns and feedback.

Os provedores dos leitores estão a ser despedidos. Não há leitores que os defendam?

The ombudsmen are being sacked. Won’t readers be concerned about them ?

Above all, a blogger must have a thick skin. It’s tough out there, but also fun. Among the hooligans there are clever, decent people who simply want to tell you things you didn’t know.

So what’s next? Spot Us will be a nonprofit to test a new business model – community funded journalism.

What I’m going to build will be a marketplace for journalism. News organizations (old or new media) can use the space to support their most enterprise projects. Community and civic organizations can come together, take a stand and let the media know what is being under-reported. Independent journalists can get paid to do what they do best – report on local stories, all while building up their portfolio.
