http://videojournalismworkshops.com, WASHINGTON, DC, 21 January 2013 -- We now are accepting registration for our next Video Journalism Workshop With Bill Gentile in Washington, DC, on 7-10 March 2013.

Learn to make money by producing powerful visual stories and to earn money while doing so.

Bill Gentile is an independent documentary filmmaker and visual journalist who teaches at American University in Washington, DC. His career spans three decades, five continents and nearly every facet of journalism and mass communication. He is a pioneer of "backpack journalism" and today he is one of the craft's most noted practitioners. He is the founder and director of American University's Backpack Journalism Project. Outside of the university, Gentile conducts intensive, four-day immersions in the methodology that he has come to embody.

Gentile defines backpack journalism as "the craft of one properly trained practitioner using a hand-held digital video camera to tell character-driven stories in a more immediate, more intimate fashion than is achievable using conventional, shoulder-held cameras and a team that includes camera person, sound person, correspondent and producer. Backpack journalists do it all and, most importantly, we make the pictures, which are the driving force of visual communication. Backpack journalism is NOT the 6 o'clock new reported by a single, multi-tasking journalist. It is a character-driven methodology with a specific, time-consuming approach and application that yields unique results and that does not work in all situations."
