Citizen Video

Training and engaging citizens in video journalism

About the Book

This handbook is part of my final project for the MA in Online Journalism at Birmingham City University. It is based on experience I've gained, lessons I've learnt as well as on assumptions and conclusions I've drawn both by holding video workshops and trying to build up a video community in the Birmingham area. Moreover, it is referring to interviews and further research.

"Citizen Video" was made for everyone aiming to hold video journalism workshops for citizen journalists as well as those who also want to engage them in this area.
