Video Journalism: Beyond the One-Man Band - Mass Communication & Journalism 6 (Paperback)Mary Angela Bock (author)
- We can order this
This book presents more than two years of ethnographic research in a wide variety of contexts in the United States and the United Kingdom, including local newspapers, The New York Times, local television stations, the BBC, the Voice of America radio network, and several professional photographic workshops.
In a departure from other news ethnographies, this book takes a somewhat unusual approach in that the author observes video journalists at work in the field, not just in newsrooms, on stories ranging from an urban shooting to a presidential campaign visit. This approach offers a fascinating insider perspective for those in the field as well as those who aspire to it.

"Video Journalism is a rare investigation at this point in time, demonstrating the kind of breadth and flexibility the field itself now demands. If you were setting out to produce a comprehensive understanding of this discipline, your storyboard would necessarily interweave the technical, practical, commercial, historical, ethical, vocational as well as the aesthetic. Mary Angela Bock has got the script down, providing a view of visual journalism as a fixed snapshot. More artfully and accurately, however, she also renders the workings of a discipline in an almost permanent state of flux." (Michael Shaw, Publisher of `BagNewsNotes.com')
