Turning ‘Roar’ Reporters into Mobile Journalists
The International Research & Exchanges Board or IREX is an international non-profit organisation that 'strives for a more just, prosperous, and inclusive world—where individuals reach their full potential, governments serve their people, and communities thrive.'
In 2020 Moore’s Lore was hired to consult on its Media Empowerment for a Democratic Sri Lanka programme, better know as MEND. We were paired with two media outlets in Sri Lanka to develop strategies for new media production and monetisation and provide the training to upskill the teams.
Unfortunately we were cut off by the unexpected arrival of Covid-19 but Neal did have the chance to run a Mobile Journalism workshop for the reporters at Sri Lanka’s fastest growing new media startup Roar Media.
The workshop educates participants in how to turn their smartphones into complete production facilities for shooting & editing news stories. It deeps dives into apps and accessories that augment the existing capabilities of the smartphone as well as demonstrating techniques for getting great interviews, vox-pops and b-roll. Scroll down to see what they produced.
In light of the current circumstances Moore’s Lore Media is now developing an e-learning platform for IREX to continue its excellent work with a range of consultants and publications across Sri Lanka. More on that as it breaks!
