Online news workflow

production / Online media / events

CHALLENGES

The need to increase integration of video programming into online news workflows – particularly for non video based organizations.

I have worked with this challenge since early consulting work for Fairfax Media in 2000, through to delivering multiple courses in Online Video Journalism for Macleay College in 2010.

SOLUTION

Taking the evolving use of Solid State media, laptop editing systems and portable vision switchers, I have delivered dozens of solutions for rapid news, event and and sports coverage. Using a single operator or a small crew, different solutions can tailor media from live news to Multicamera coverage of events.

My production business, pixelmill films was very involved in this area of production. The mobile news workflow we developed for breaking news website Livenews.com.au enabled a live to network time of around 30 minutes for a fully edited package. Our coverage of Fashion Week for Marie Claire Magazine had over 500,000 visits in the first day, and we delivered 35 edited parade films in 4 days with and average go-live turn around of 25 minutes.
