Learn documentary shooting techniques, on-camera reporting, off-camera interview skills, journalistic writing, and documentary editing. Develop a documentary concept, or bring one, and shoot footage to be analyzed and edited over two workshop sessions. Participants may use VIVO's video cameras, or bring their own.

During Session 1, learn how to get a great interview by setting up lights, operating camera and microphones, and developing appropriate questions. 

For homework, shoot some footage to use for session two. Don’t have a camera to finish homework? Participants with a Producer Membership (Basic or Extended) receive a 50% discount toward rental of one of VIVO’s cameras. 

For Session 2, bring in your footage and learn how to develop a solid structure by editing a short news story with a voiceover and on-camera introduction.

As an artist, I explode the aesthetics of political conflict; as an educator, I try to make media flow organically from the social. My ambition is to lead, support and challenge non-profits, schools, community groups and other progressive actors to improve their understanding and use of media, all while having fun.”

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable. has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
