Responsibilities and Duties
The four main functions of a video journalist are producer, reporter, video operator and video editor.
- As producers, they develop and plan a live or taped video segments. This can include setting up interviews, determining where a segment is to be shot or selecting the different shots to be used.
- As reporters, they compile data from various sources, investigate, analyze and write their stories, editing as needed. In essence, they combine the duties with that of a news writer, deciding what particular slant a story will take.
- As cameramen, they operate their own camera. This is possible through reporting in a static shot and placing the camera on a tripod to prevent it from moving. Because many times video journalists will be on location, both in front of the camera and operating it, they need to take the footage they’ve acquired and create news segments suitable for broadcasting. This requires them to have knowledge of video editing equipment.
- To originate and develop programme ideas; to assist in forward planning of material for future programmes.
