Master class: The solo journalist in a digital/broadcast newsroom **pre-registered attendees only

  • Event: 2019 IRE Conference
  • Speaker: Brendan Keefe of WXIA-Atlanta
  • Date/Time: Friday, Jun. 14 at 2:30pm
  • Location: Kingwood
  • Audio file: No audio file available.

How can one person do it all and do it well? Brendan Keefe has won an IRE Award, Peabody, duPont/Columbia and multiple National Murrow awards all since choosing to work as his own photographer, video editor, researcher and reporter. Brendan will show you how he sets up multiple cameras for investigative interviews and how working alone can actually be an advantage for surveillance and accountability investigations. 

This three-hour seminar will feature real-world examples of the solo investigator’s craft and in-person demonstrations for beginners and advanced visual storytellers. As a bonus, Brendan will share the gadgets, tools and apps that allow him to capture the shot and make documents sing for digital and television.

Experienced and aspiring MMJs will benefit most from this seminar, but reporters with an interest in adding to their skill sets — and photographer/editors who want to step up their game — will also learn valuable techniques that can be implemented immediately.

Pre-registration is required and seating is limited.
