The new term has barely begun, and already we have experienced one of the highlights of the semester. Recently a group of media executives and journalists from Shanghai visited the New York Film Academy. It is always interesting to share information with international colleagues, and it was especially rewarding to talk about the fundamental changes taking place in the field of Broadcast Journalism.
“As someone who has worked extensively in China, it was fun for me to hear about some of the latest developments taking place in Shanghai,” said Broadcast Journalism Chair, Bill Einreinhofer.
The group found the discussion about DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) cameras the most interesting part of the presentation. DSLR cameras are symbolic of the dramatic impact digital technology is having on news gathering and reporting. We passed around several DSLR rigs, so that everyone had a chance to use the equipment.
