Tips and tricks for compiling mobile journalism videos

Dear jamlab reader

Following the closing date for applications for our third jamlab accelerator programme, we are happy to say we received quite a number of quality applications. We are now in the process of shortlisting and inviting candidates to a pitching session later this month. Do keep on the lookout for the announcement for the third cohort of jamlab fellows in early 2020.

We have spent some time digesting all the information from yet another successful African Investigative Journalism Conference (#AIJC19), as well as a journalism education workshop in Malawi. We will be sharing some of the take-aways from these gatherings in this edition of the newsletter as well as the next. One of those sessions was with Social Weaver digital media trainer, Michael Salzwedel, who shared a couple of his tricks and ideas on producing mobile journalism videos.

Don’t forget to follow the jamlab on Twitter (@jamlabAfrica) and like the Facebook page to stay in touch with the latest news and updates.

Best regards,
jamlab Africa Team
