When I watched Steve Johnson at FSPA a few months ago, I thought doing a multimedia package would be easy, but that's not the case. Even though the work load on video editing is tedious at times, I love producing multimedia.
The future of journalism relies on multimedia and that's what I did for most of day 15 at the UM Journalism Workshop.
Day 16 was spent at the Sun-Sentinel office in Downtown Ft. Lauderdale. While the building looked very modern, the newsroom was a classic 1950s type environment with little cubicles and short, stubby computers and keyboards.
My youth editor from Teenlink South Florida spoke to us as well. It is nice having a connection before going to a place.
That will be the case tomorrow as we are visiting The Miami Herald. They are ordering lunch for us, which will be pretty cool to see how journalists eat, which is definitely not at Chartwells(UM's dining hall, pictured to the right), which has been the butt of jokes for the last few days here at UM.
Today will be spent strictly video editing. I will also be taking a small visit to do some B-roll at a store in the mall. It will be nice to pay a rare visit to where I live, which I don't see the likes of until August.
My journalism summer continues and I love it!
