(801) Curating & Repackaging Citizen Video for the News

A session at Mozilla Festival 2012

Sunday 11th November, 2012

12:30pm to 2:00pm (GMT)

This session is for:
- Video bloggers & journalists
- Translators
- Designers & Techs
- International bloggers & journalists

An explosion in online video production has changed the nature of reporting and advocacy around the world. For civic actors, the problem has shifted from obtaining footage of important events to discovering and amplifying the important footage. Instead of shooting and editing video, newsrooms and bloggers now need to identify, verify, contextualize, translate and spread citizen video on the open web.

In this session, we will discuss and design new workflows and technologies to repackage and share citizen video on the web.
