Free media workshop offered at Mesa State
By SENTINEL STAFF
Want to navigate the Web and find information like a pro? Want to learn the basics of web video and editing from masters in the media?
Mesa State College, in conjunction with the University of Colorado at Boulder’s School of Journalism & Mass Communication, is offering a chance to attend a free workshop about Web-based technologies, led by professionals from leading media outlets.
The George Orbanek Journalism Workshop: An Outreach Program for Negotiating the Invisible Web and Interactively Engaging Residents of Colorado Communities will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. July 17 in Room 308 (computer lab) in the Fine Arts Building on the Mesa State campus.
The workshop is open to anyone, free of charge, as the program is funded through a James M. Cox Foundation grant. The Daily Sentinel is owned by parent company Cox Enterprises.
Lunch is also included. No previous Web or video experience is required.
Participants will produce actual, factual video to be posted on the Web in four steps by learning: pro techniques for finding local information on the Web; pro techniques for shooting digital video that illustrates that information; how to edit digital video; and how to upload it to the Web.
Instructors include Denver Post reporter Burt Hubbard; Paul Daugherty, a CU broadcast production journalism instructor and former producer at Rocky Mountain PBS; and Paul Voakes, dean of the CU School of Journalism & Mass Communication.
