Diving into video

Welcome back! Apart from the video links on the Week 1 syllabus page, I wanted to give you a link to the post from Angela Grant’s blog, News Videographer:

This is the post that suggests three attributes that make a story well suited for video:

  • Lots of movement and action
  • Something people just want to see
  • Emotion
