Journalists Expected to Write Copy & Shoot Video

Andy Dickinson reports on a survey of practices of video reporting within newspapers:

  • Video is commonly shot and edited by the same person
  • Reporters are expected to shoot video and file copy on the same story
  • Photographers are expected to shoot stills and video on the same story
  • You should allow 4 hours to produce 1 minute of video
  • There are no clearly defined roles in newsrooms for video
