The Balkans: mobile video production
Balkans Investigative Reporting Network (BIRN) journalists attended a three-day training course on mobile video production from August 19 to 21 in Skopje, conducted by the Voice of America (VOA).
A group of ten journalists and editors from Bosnia and Herzegovina and Macedonia were introduced to new mobile apps for filming and editing video content on mobile platforms. They also learned new approaches and developed skills in video reporting using new technologies that will be in use in everyday reporting and delivering content, especially for social media.
The training focused on improving production of the video content relevant to web and social media audiences and enhancement of journalists’ ability to tell stories that engage users through text, pictures, videos and live streaming.
BIRN and USAGM signed a Memorandum for No-Cost Partnership in 2017.
