Where might we go with a 21st century visual journalism model?

The Construct

All work involves construction. Some events present themselves as a whole — a scene where an action is unfurling and exhibits a putative message, whereby minimal creative in filming is required.

Cinema Journalism

What underpins the craft of cinema journalism is memorability . Watch as one of the key BBC figures who shaped their output using single cameras for journalists, touches on this point.

Scenario

Just as fictional cinema involves a script, cinema journalism embraces an equivalence.

Alien scenario

Some stories you’ll be faced with provide an emotional tapestry that will have no resonance with you the filmmaker. For instance, would you know how to film a flower show? Or what approach would you adopt to filming a biker gang?
