Nov. Training Presentation.

High-quality video can bring business stories to life, and journalists are increasingly being asked to shoot segments on their smartphones. SABEW’s next training session will give you an overview of how best to shoot video and audio, even if your equipment is limited. Mitchell Masilun, an Arkansas-based editorial photographer and multimedia specialist, will lead SABEW members through this one-hour webinar. He’ll cover the basic concepts of what makes a good (and bad) video and offer tips and tricks for shooting the best video with the equipment you have. He’ll also review inexpensive gear that can help improve smartphone video. If time permits, he’ll also provide video editing tips.

Mitchell Masilun is an Arkansas-based editorial photographer, multimedia specialist and educator. He currently is a photojournalist at The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette in Little Rock.

Previously, Mitch was a multimedia journalist at the Mansfield News Journal in Mansfield, Ohio. He also worked as a staff photographer at Beijing-based True Run Media, publisher of three lifestyle magazines with a combined circulation of more than 70,000. He taught photography courses at The Hutong and Atelier, two Beijing-based culture and art education centers.
