Todos nós sabemos como funciona:  é preciso obter e divulgar a informação o mais rápido possível. O tempo no jornalismo é um luxo a que muitas vezes não temos direito. Mas com a polivalência exigida hoje em dia* aos jornalistas como é que se faz tudo bem e depressa?

David Dunkley Gyimah é um dos meus mestres de video favoritos, porque a sua enorme experiência leva-o a abordar o lado prático das coisas. Vejam como ele ensina a fazer uma entrevista em 3 minutos, sem grandes complicações. Ele prometeu publicar esse video, que se juntará aqui mais tarde. Os resultados podem ser vistos no segundo vídeo.

Já agora, leiam as suas ideias sobre como se pode construir uma rede eficaz de video jornalismo entre as grandes publicações nacionais e as locais.

* Hoje em dia– Sim, hoje. Aceitem isso.

We all know how it goes: we have to get the information, edit and publish it as fast as we can.  Time in journalism is a luxury that most of the times can’t simply afford. But with all the multitasking demanded to journalists nowadays* how can we do everything fast and well?

David Dunkley Gyimah is one of my favorite video masters, because his huge experience makes him to have a more pragmatic approach to things. Watch how he teaches to make an interview in just 3 minutes, without much fuss. He promised to publish that video, that will be posted here later.The second video shows the results.

By the way, take a look at his ideas on how an effective video journalism network can be built, between the big news outlets, and local ones.

*Nowadays – Yeah, today. Embrace that.

Investment matters
But there is instruction the newspapers could take to heart, history unfurling a solution worth looking at.
In May 1846 a group of American newspapers pooled their resources to maximise their range, news gathering from Europe.

Back then the Internet was the catalyst, a Victorian Internet – The Telegraph.

So what if now, online news makers pooled their video.

I understand how video made in Cumbria will be specific to that region, but here’s where the VJs rethink more laterally.

The 1st quadrant body of the video could be loose enough to refer to any community. This might give rise to an evolving format, and a new video agency could emerge.

It would foster competition amongst newspaper groups. They’ll become their own arbiters of the content and the politics of aesthetic.

To quote an old MIT maxim: demo or die.

Is the Guardian going hyper local?

“Amazing video to study and emulate”

“I think it’s definitely something to feel extremely proud about. This is amazing photography and amazing storytelling. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about it. This is the type of video that journalism professors should show in class, and all of us professionals should try to emulate.”

in News Videographer

“On June 23, News & Observer photojournalists Travis Long, Takaaki Iwabu, Ethan Hyman, and Juli Leonard visited the Eno Quarry in Durham to shoot video and still images for an in-house project on the quarry. The group had envisioned a light piece on swimming hole culture.

A few weeks later, they were contacted by the family of 19-year-old Ian Creath, who had drowned in the quarry on July 9. The family sought the last-known video and photographs of him.

In the process of gathering images of Ian and his brother, Lance, the group got to know their mother, Shawn Bailey. Her strong spirit and thoughtful remembrance of her son inspired this project.”

“Making of a Multimedia Journalist”

David Dunkley Gyimah é um videojornalista que nos mostra aqui o que é que está a mudar no jornalismo multimédia e em especial no video jornalismo. A ler com atenção. Em baixo fica o integral do seu “Manifesto do VideoJornalista”.

O que é o Multimédia e porque é que nos devemos importar? e Perceber que existe uma mudança no paradigma são dois pontos essenciais nesta pequena dissertação. Um dos documentos mais interessantes que já encontrei sobre este assunto.

David Dunkley Gyimah is a videojournalist that shows us here what is changing in multimedia journalism and specially in videojournalism. Below is his “Video Journalists Manifesto”.

“So what is multimedia and frankly why should we care?” and Understanding there is a paradigm shift are two essential items in this work. One of the most interesting documents I ever came across with.




The video journalists Manifesto


1. I am a video journalist: I crave creativity, loathe that which is predictable. It is my job to look for truth.

2. I can move alone in any terrain. Experience is my blanket. Swarming (groups of Vjs coming together) increases my range.

3. I will be told by those who believe they know best that it can’t be done. I must accept that they don’t understand my job, my limitations. Nothing is impossible.

4. When they look at a blank piece of paper they see nothing, when I look at a blank canvas, I see the orgins of motion graphics, film and information coming together.

5. I start a dialogue. My packages can be open ended, begging further questions and dialogue. My work is never done. Each thread leads into a new tapestry of ideas and dialogue, which I relish. Herein lies the possibilities of deep video linking

6. My greastest allies are the hundreds of contacts I am yet to meet. I am surrounded by ideas, people, who have a story to share. And I often shoot-on-the-fly, unrehearsed; news in unpredictable.

7. Failure is an option. I must be allowed to fail. I do not court it, but is is a precondition of creativity. I am a researcher with a camera, experimenting with the template which has driven news production. I write my story as it unfolds and sometimes I know, just like a newspaper journalist, I may have to spike my story. Visually it just didn’t work.

8. I am lean. I carry no excess weight or baggage. I am a specialist. I kill only that which I can eat, lessening the load and burden which others artificially absorb. There are some shots such as court and “big game” reportage where I may be unsuitable. There are risks as a solo journalist, but discretion is on my side.

9. My job is never done. My camera is my third eye. My camera goes where I go.

10. Like an actor I crave new parts, Like a footballer I make endless runs into the goal mouth searching for scoring opportinities. My work rate is phenomenal. But I’m trained to undershoot so my work load is made lighter.

11. I am a child of a bygone era. There were others before me. The first film makers were VJs [ Victorian VJs] I respect and build on their skills. My fall back is history, convention; my milestone is the future.

12. I am a designer, an editior, a producer, a director, a reporter, photographer an designer. I am a jack of all trades and a master of them.

13. I represent a new discourse in story telling and journalism blurring the boundaries between technologist and artisan, the net and TV, a writer and visual blogger.

14. I hear pictures, see sound, absorb words and can visualise music -all of which makes me a more attuned VJ.

15. Mi6 Video journalism allows me to strip a story bare: the podcast, blog, article, video, and multimedia

16. The tools of my trade: a powerful laptop, editing software, rugged rucksack, collapsable tripod, High Definition DV Cam, water, pen, firewire cable, external 200 g hard drive.

17. My software includes: Final Cut Studio, Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Photoshop, In design, After Effects and Flash

18. It’s all in the story. My job is to craft it visually.

19. The Net – the most powerful broadcast media-in-waiting is my natural home.

20. The benefits of video journalism are many; but the ink definning video journalism is not dry. It is many things to all people. To me its is an aggressive, sometimes stealth way of shooting where the results of my labour will outdo those of bigger crew.

21. The work of Claudio Von Planta, Scott Rensberger, Rosenblum, Naka Nathaniel, Ruud – just some of the doyens of videojournalism illustrates the aforementioned point.

22. This manifesto is not complete

23. Belatedly added. Videojournalism is but another thread sowing the tapestry of our many stories, but what’s next? What will come to define in our contracted timeline the new discourse and new tools. Qu how might videojournalism evolve?
