Build Digital Journalism and Broadcasting Skills
NYFA’s 8-Week Broadcast Journalism Workshop trains students in the fundamental principles of contemporary broadcast journalism, cross-platform nonfiction video, and digital production, teaching them how to apply narrative storytelling to the news.
During their time at NYFA, students work in the classroom and on-location, learning to produce their own news stories through a range of hands-on projects.
Program DescriptionProgram Name: 8-Week Broadcast Journalism Workshop
In the 8-Week Broadcast Journalism Workshop, students get an introduction to digital journalism, learning to produce their own news projects from start-to-finish. Throughout the program, students gain practical technical and creative skills through hands-on training, shooting their news segments with single-camera set-ups and editing using industry-standard software. To learn how to fill the role of MMJ (multimedia journalist) in a fast-paced, professional environment, students tackle a range of responsibilities, such as identifying and making arrangements for their subjects, choosing and securing locations, preparing equipment, arranging the preparation and setup of the locations, and making final technical checks.
In addition to completing newsworthy projects for their reel, students also learn vital transferable skills in communication, research, narrative storytelling, personal branding, and writing, teaching them how to effectively present their work and build an on-camera persona. The workshop is a great fit for a student with an interest in digital journalism or a professional looking to enhance their skills in multimedia, social media, and content creation.
