It’s the BEST Web Video Workshop Ever

ORLANDO–  If you want to know how to do video and don’t have a television production background, you should have been at the SPJ Southeastern Regional Conference this weekend here at University of Central Florida.

I just emerged from Matt Sokoloff’s “Videography for Reporters” workshop and it’s quite clear that Tribune has the right man leading its online products division.

I’ve been to numerous sessions at conferences on video and have been in the sometimes uncomfortable position of teaching such a workshop.   As a TV person, it’s hard to know what to tell someone who has LITTLE experience with a video camera.

Sokoloff hit the nail on the head with his great suggestions.  I’m ready to implement many of his suggestions with my next Web video.
