Team Talk, produced entirely by CfJ undergrads, makes its KMTV debut

Oct
04

When we launched KMTV last year as a joint venture between the CfJ and the KM Group, we hoped that it would prove a fertile training ground for our students as they prepare for journalism careers.

And last night's airing of the first edition of sports magazine show Team Talk on KMTV is an indication of just how well this premise is working.

Timetables

Sep
30

As per my emails to all students on 23 September and 26 September, your SDS timetable is not currently showing the non-academic/NCTJ modules (which include Conference and Shorthand).  I attached a paper copy of the timetable showing all the modules to both my emails.  I am still receiving emails from students who say they have missed classes because they were not aware of them as they were not showing on SDS.  If you need a paper copy of the timetable please come and get one from my office and PLEASE READ YOUR EMAILS.

Good blog on shooting video on your phone

Sep
27

Everyone doing the NCTJ portfolio at the CFJ -- that is, all students doing the NCTJ Diploma -- needs to shoot a simple story on their phone.

So I was pleased to find this blog by a BBC journalist about how he is making shooting some quite ambitous stuff on his phone: http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/academy/entries/edb5f4ed-19fb-46aa-b23c-9f828...

It's very good. Take a look. He's updating as he learns more about how to manage the workflow.
