filming

As a journalist learning how to use video allows you to work for a wider range of media outlets.

1.With print newspaper production falling by 8% each day and the emergence of new technology, the world of journalism is changing.

2. Media outlets such as online magazines are relying more and more on online video content to keep their readers informed. Outlets such as the BBC are now using video on their Instagram accounts to give their followers short news bursts.

3. Video gives the audience visuals to look at rather than simply text to read, which takes less energy. Therefore readers will often choose to watch a video over reading text.

4. A video informs the reader faster than text. In this age of technology readers want to receive news as fast as possible. In a piece of text every detail needs to be explained, but videos can show rather than tell.

5. Learning how to use video will mean that you can work for a wider range of media outlets.
