Example of mobile journalism video vox pop

This vox pop was filmed using Filmic Pro app on an iPhone 4S, together with a Fostex AR 4i, Rode Video Pro and Rode NTG 2 microphone.

Each portrait photo was taken with the iPhone and a collage was produced using the Diptic app. The collage was saved to the camera roll.

The individual video vox pop clips were trimmed in the native camera app, then directly uploaded to YouTube.

Each video clip was then embedded into the collage using the Thinglink iOS app.

The resulting collage video vox pop was then embedded into Medium.

Tips for online writing

نصائح للكتابة على المواقع الالكترونية

اكتب عنوان قوي ومباشر، يمكن أن يفهم قائما بحد ذاته

تعديل العناوين للمواقع الالكترونية ومواقع التواصل الاجتماعي: المواقع الالكترونية / تويتر / فيسبوك

تعتبر الفقرة الأولى مثل ملخص القصة – يجب أن تسرد وتبيعالقصة في جملة واحدة. ويجب أن تفهم قائمة بحد ذاتها، أو يمكن التوسع في العنوان

فكر بنموذج الهرم المقلوب في القصص الاخبارية. بالنسبة للقصص الاخبارية القصيرة على المواقع الالكترونية، حول أن تسرد القصة بأهم النقاط في أول أربع أو خمس فقرات

اكتب جمل قصيرة. استهدف فكرة أو نقطة واحدة لكل جملة.

تذكر أنك تكتب لشاشات الكمبيوتر والأجهزة الذكية

في القصص الأطول، قسم النص بحيث تصبح قراءته أسهل. استعمل العناوين الفرعية

يجب أن تساعد العناوين الفرعية في جذب القارئ ليقرأ أكثر، إلا أنها يجب أن تشير إلى شيء موجود في النص

يجب أن يكون الشرح تحت الصور دقيقا، تحقق بأن الأسماء والتواريخ صحيحة.

Any small kugel / ball tripod head is good to swivel the camera if you connect to a tripod or monopod – you could probably get something even cheaper.
