2015 will be the year of the mobile field reporter


 
The mobile reporting and smartphone filmmaking revolution is going to get a lot more interesting in the new year.
Here is what is on the 2015 calendar so far.


In January, the good people at ICFJ and IJNET will be offering my new 10-lesson Quick Start Video Course in mobile video journalism. 
They will offer a new, free online lesson every week as we count down to the launch of the Smart Film School. Stay tuned for updates on this project!

In February, the gang at Journalism.co.uk  will be hosting my popular two-day mobile reporting workshop
Here is the outline of what I teach in a two day crash course.

At the beginning of March, the Smart Film School will be online offering 100 video lessons on smartphone filmmaking and mobile video journalism.
This is a comprehensive masterclass that journalism educators and professional journalists will get a lot out of.


The entire newsroom of journalists at Public Radio International (USA) will be the first to take the entire Smart Film School course.
Contact me if you would also like to give this training to your entire organization: I offer volume pricing plans for course licenses purchased in bulk.

At the end of March, the folks at RTE Ireland are putting on the first-ever gathering for mobile video journalism and filmmaking in Dublin, Ireland.
It is called MoJoCon and features an all-star lineup of speakers and exhibitors.

I’ll be sharing my experiences of building a world-class mobile-first journalism center and developing the MOJO training programs for Radio Free Europe.
There are a few early-bird tickets left, so go and grab ‘em! at http://mojocon.rte.ie/
In April I will be at the International Journalism Festival in Italy presenting “Your Smartphone is Your Newsroom”  and producing two workshops on mobile video and multimedia reporting.



In May, I will be producing a week-long immersion program in Berlin with faculty from the Danish Media School of Journalism.

Over four days we will be training reporters on all aspects of smartphone storytelling.


In June I have been invited to present a two day mobile reporting seminar for undergrad students at FHWien University in Vienna, Austria.
All this means that mobile reporting is will be going mainstream in 2015.
