A Journalist's First iPhone Video - Critiqued

Navtej Johal (@navtejhohal) is a TV reporter with the BBC’s East Midlands Today, their regional news show.


This is the first news piece he ever shot with an iPhone.


As you can see, the quality of the video is astonishingly good.  And for a first piece, it’s also pretty good.   I read about him on twitter and immediately asked if he would mind if I critiqued the piece on TheVJ.com.  He said, ‘no problem’.  I told him that critiques (my critiques at any rate) were both praise and criticism (that’s why we call them critique).  As we say at our video bootcamps, ‘if you want praise, show it to your mother.’

Overall, it’s pretty good, but take a look yourself and you can decide.

This video runs pretty long.  We’ll look at the piece as a whole, then I will go back and take it apart – the good, the bad and the ugly (or rather, those thing he could have done better, at least in my opinion).
