Take 5 Steps to the Right Story

The NewsU for this week gave steps to multimedia storytelling. The steps were very clear. And NewsU describes the proper use of multimedia while collecting information for a story and how to use what you have collected in the story. I did not know that  there was a specific makeup to using multimedia depending on what you are reporting on. I received a full representation on what you should and shouldn’t do for multimedia writing.

It was suprising to hear how backpack journalists should pack. When I first thought about packing I thought about appropriate clothing and a voice recorders. I didn’t think about media equipment.

I had very little clue as to how much equipment is necessary for an just an interview. I had no clue about the proper manner to get information from a recording device. I don’t think that I would have been able to get to the important points form the interview.

I would like to know more about storyboards. I have never built a storyboard before and I am still slightly confused about the process. Though NewsU did give a good explanation of storyboards and how to build them.

I want to know more about how to know what the best type of media to use for specific stories. If I could master this concept I am sure I could make the best story using multimedia equipment.

I also want to know more about the media equipment and how each piece of equipment works. I am not familiar with that equipment but I would love to see how to use each piece. I feel like that equipment could be useful in a PR environment. The equipment could help attain information about clients or for clients.

This NewsU course was very interesting. I gained lots of knowledge on how to build a story using multimedia. I feel as though I can utilize media in a productive manner now that I have been shown the different uses of media for story writing.
