Event description

Description

Point Park University’s second annual Environmental Journalism Multimedia Workshop is a free event that focuses on teaching storytelling through hands-on multimedia training. The two-day workshop will occur at Point Park University’s Center for Media Innovation. Participants will work in teams, paired with professional mentors, to produce a 3-5 minute multimedia project on a provided story-opportunity.

The completed media projects will be shared at a public presentation, Saturday evening, October 28th, at the Center for Media Innovation.

Learn basic interview skills, composition and how to produce a video-package in Adobe Premier.

Last year students had to chance to interview representatives at Garfield Community Farm, Blackberry Meadows, Allegheny Land Trust, and Penn Future. This year we are revisiting some of those same groups, as well as adding some new and exciting story opportunities to the list!

To see last year's projects please follow this link. The projects were published on our website, the Environmental-Report.org, as well as shared via our Facebook page.
