Today is Day 1 in our intensive hands-on 4-day video bootcamp in London, at the offices of The Guardian newspaper.  We've got 20 working journalists, representivies from organizations such at the UN, NICE, and others just getting started on the road to video literacy and a professional video career.

Today, they're getting our Michael Rosenblum 5-Shot Method lecture. In a few minutes they'll hit the streets of London do shoot their very first piece. 

Later today, we'll screen all their footage in front of the group in our 'public praise / public humiliation' screening session. You only learn by making mistakes and everyone learns by seeing everyone else's mistakes.  We have found over the past 30 years that it's the best way to learn.  But we ONLY allow people in the screenings who have taken risks and shot their own video as well.  NO OBSERVERS ALLOWED!

Bad News, Good News

The old news mantra — if it bleeds, it leads has been replaced by if it’s gross, adios. The prospect of a news-free electorate is terrifying.


The news business is in trouble. In the past decade, more than 2400 local newspapers have closed. NBC Nightly News gets 5 million viewers per night, in a nation of 340 million people, so most people are not watching. What are they watching? Netflix.


For most of human history, people lived in a world without news. The concept simply did not exist. The idea of news is really a 19th-century phenomenon, driven first by newspapers, and then by electronic media which brought us radio, then TV and now the web. Now, it seems, we are headed back to a world without news. Not because the technology is not there, but rather because, increasingly, people are no longer interested in news, at least in the way it is packaged now.
