The challenges of mobile visual journalism | Robert Scheer, Indianopolis Star

There are challenges to producing digital journalism with a phone, but here are some tips to making it more manageable.

  • Let the subject determine whether to go live. For instance, the Indy Star has a live show before Friday night football games.

  • All good video starts with good audio. Get a mic close to the person being interviewed.

  • Value what visual journalists bring to the table. Get them involved early in the editorial decision-making process on a project.
