As some of my more technically-minded followers — and hopefully those with an interest in video or broadcast — will know, I’ve been running a side project for almost a year now.
Called audiovideojournalism.com the idea behind the site was to gather together some of the tricks and techniques I’ve picked up over the years, producing editorial content for a number of websites, as well as from broadcast and live events. It’s good to be able to share know-how, but it’s also proved to be a useful forum for keeping up with developments in the audio and video industries, and for looking at new kit as it comes out.
The current version of the site is its second incarnation, or perhaps more accurately, the second beta. The plan now is to look at how the site can be improved and expanded, with a view to making it interesting to anyone involved in professional audio and video production, not just for journalists. In time, I hope to add more video reviews — these are fun to do but take a lot of time — technique articles, and also reports or case studies on projects or new developments in the industry.
In the meantime, though, I am very keen to hear from readers, or would be readers, about what they would like me to cover in the future. I am also looking for a couple of professional video or audio producers or journalists to join a reader’s panel – if you are interested, do email me via the links on this site.
And, of course, if you have clients who want to submit their gear for review, or are interested in advertising, sponsorship or webinars, do email me or contact me by phone or on Twitter.
