Videos from the FCC’s April Journalism Conference

Date: 23 Apr 2016 12:00 AM | Venue:

On April 23, the FCC proudly hosted a journalism conference, “Covering News in the Era of Digital Disruption.” Our club welcomed 180 participants, including more than 30 speakers.

A team of 11 undergraduate students from HKU’s Journalism and Media Studies Centre (JMSC) covered the conference. Split into teams of reporters/camerapeople, the students carried out simultaneous interviews in the short breaks between panel discussions and workshops.

For the students, who had just completed a three-month intensive TV news production course, this was a great opportunity to work on a real story, identify sharp story angles and work on short edits suitable for YouTube and the web. This was also a great opportunity for them to meet some of the finest journalists in the profession!

Here is the full playlist of the conference videos on HKU’s YouTube channel:
