Citizen Journalism: From Pamphlet to Blog - Documentary

Monday, August 21, 2006
I've just watched "Citizen Journalism: From Pamphlet to Blog" which is a pithy 15-minute introduction to a number of the issues relating to citizen journalism, blogs and vlogging. It was created at Cambridge Community Television for a class project on documentary making, by the following team: Jason Crow, Shaun Clarke, Darcie Deangelo, Amy Mertl, Buz Owen, Jason Ong, Matt Landry, and Mayana Leocadio. They've released their doco using a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike license, so others are free to view it so long as they give credit and don't make money off the screening. Having recently given a lecture on blogging and citizen journalism, I think this is a great resource. Take a look:

I'm also impressed with the general structure, services and layout of BlipTV who are hosting the doco file in various formats. The creators of the doco actually used BlipTV to post online early recordings and a rough-cut of their piece, which is really useful for others to see how the process of editing a doco works. A great teaching tool and a nice little doco.
