In between I have used video journalism working with Lennox Lewis the heavyweight boxer, Making ads screened on CNN International with John Staton Productions ( ex Saatchi head of TV), a deep wreck expedition in the Dardanelles, conflict reportage in Ghana and for Nato.
And recently Camp video journalism in Chicago and soon in Virtual Platform worlds.
There are aspects of news making that directly feed into Video journalism's swift turn around and editing on the fly, which I learned working at World Wide Television News agency, now APTV.
They had the formula for packaging down to the second. I have recently located some of those foreign stories and will post.
Meanwhile on Viewmgazine.tv it's the 1st of January 1996 and I have drawn the short straw. Channel One was so about multi skilling that many Vjs also presented the news.
There's no one behind the camera by the way and you controlled the auto cue with your foot.
On this package Jon Gilbert, now a much respected reporter on ITV gives gives a good illustration of a videojournalist on top of his game reporting from Trafalgar Square.
