Stop practicing this thing you call journalism and start making cinema journalism.

“Citing examples such as Black Hawk Down as the sort of film we should seek inspiration from, Dunkley Gyimah threw concepts such as mis-en-scene into the mix. At some points, when he blew us away with the art-tastic productions that fellow VJs on the global scene had produced, it seemed difficult how we could get our work to fit into that model. This was inspiring stuff, but we students looked at each other slightly bemused. Imagine our editors’ faces when we turn up with packages that look more like a Hungarian art-house movie than a traditional news report”.
