Day In The Life Of A VJ

An insight into the work of video journalists (VJs) in the regional press is provided by a new case study.

The multimedia piece from Journalism.co.uk features the video team from the Wolverhampton Express & Star and follows the head of video and the two VJs on a typical day.

Via video and audio interviews, slideshows and text, the case study presents a chronological view of events and shows how each package is put together.

Journalists talk about some of the techniques they use while out filming and explain what they like about their jobs.

The article shows that interviewing passersby, amateur model makers and Championship footballers is all in a day’s work for regional VJs.

And it features a useful breakdown for each assignment, showing how long was spent on the various components to complete the finished product.
