My internship at The Miami Herald — now in its fifth week — continues to offer more great journalism experiences. Recently, I jumped at an opportunity to shoot and edit a video with one of my stories, which ran Saturday.

I currently have to travel to downtown Miami to edit, which I don’t mind, but Miami traffic is a huge pain. I’ll (hopefully) be able to edit on my own computer in the coming weeks. I’ve been saving for a MacBook Pro and plan to buy soon since I’m driving myself bonkers waiting for a new model.
Check out some other recent articles I’ve written:
Tuesday marked the beginning of my summer internship at The Miami Herald. I began by driving to the main office in downtown Miami for the usual first-day procedures before heading back to Broward, where I’d be working as a local general assignment reporter based out of the Herald’s Pines office.
It didn’t take long before I had a story on my plate. I first wrote a brief for the Web and, a few hours later, I had the full story online:
The first part of the event will be a Q & A session with the panelists, each of which does recruiting work for his/her respective organization. After that, they will meet individually with students to provide personalized feedback, critique resumes, etc.
Inspiration for the livecast medium After watching the livecast of a video strategy session (The Northern Short Course in Photojournalism) on ustream.tv, which Howard Owens teased on his blog, I thought it would be good to do the same with our session using that service.
I had originally thought to do our livestream through the School of Comm‘s Web channel, but they don’t have a player that I could use to embed the video.
Background You may recall that this event was originally scheduled to take place during this year’s Communication Week on Feb. 19. Unfortunately, we had to cancel because Fidel Castro decided to announcement that he was stepping down as president of Cuba that day.
Ask a question: Feel free to comment on this post or use the video player’s built-in chat feature to submit a question, which requires registering with ustream.
Full disclosure: I interned at the Sentinel last summer and will be at The Herald this summer.
