5 Good Tips for Producing TV Pieces

Last Monday, I started a reporter internship at SWR Landesschau Rheinland-Pfalz, a local (statewide) newsy TV show with a human touch at public broadcaster Südwestrundfunk (I’ve been working with them for two years now).

It’S been incredibly hard for me as – what other people would call a “digital native” to actually do online stuff within that week, but that’s another story.

For now, here are some of the best tips I gathered during the last week among authors, editors and camera people that I wanted to record: Continue reading

Hörfunk-Schule Frankfurt (Radio Broadcasting School in Frankfurt)

After months of silence (and ignoring my application, but that’s a different story), I started getting news emails from the Junge Journalisten Rheinland-Pfalz e.V (Young Journalist of Rhineland-Palatinate).

Los Twitteros – The Thrill of Crime and Journalism

Users Determine the Future of TV – The Future is Now

Resurfaced (skip this if all you care about is the article)

it’s been a while. I’ve been busy a good deal since I’m back from Seattle.
I’m interning at the overregional newspaper Rhein-Zeitung, spent two weeks in the Social Media department of their headquarters in Koblenz. Now that university has started, I’m back in Mainz, at the local office of Rhein-Zeitung, hoping to get their Social Media going here as well. I’ve been attending many interesting lectures and events about media and the future of news lately as well.

Recently, I got a chance to combine my efforts in New Media and Social media – and wrote an article about it. Sorry for those who don’t speak German!
