How to Make Investigative Stories Sing Visually – Simon Surowicz – Room 330 (25 students max)
Learn how to turn investigative stories into compelling visual narratives. Investigative journalism delves beneath the surface to uncover the ugly truth about corruption and fraud, unsafe workplaces, abuse of power, sinister scams, and the abrogation of human rights. In this workshop, you will learn how to turn complicated investigations, borne out of solid reporting, into gripping visual stories that have the power to change the status quo. Simon Surowicz is an award-winning investigative producer with more than 20 years of experience in broadcast news. He has worked at NBC News, 60 Minutes, and ABC’s Investigative Unit where he launched and managed ABC’s Investigative website “The Blotter.” For the last four years, he has served as an adviser for the Columbia Documentary Project and now the Stabile Center for Investigative Journalism.
