This May, Michael will return to MoJoCon in Galway, Ireland to discuss the future of video journalism in the age of smartphones.
MoJoCon is a conference run by RTE all about mobile journalism. More and more news outlets and journalists are utilizing smartphones in all aspects of their production chain. What used to take a crew and thousands of dollars worth of equipment can now be done with just a smartphone. You can shoot broadcast quality video on them, edit on them, and even publish.
Already, in the short amount of time that smartphones have been able to do this, they have had a large inpact on video, and should only have more impact as time progresses.
The conference is in Galway, Ireland May 4-6.
