In an attempt to become a serious citizen journalist, I went out and covered a local event here in Penhold. Thanks to all the folks from the town – Julia, Tara and Dean – who took part. Hoping to do more in the future.
BTW: Citizen journalism isn’t hard. If I can do it – you can too! Just pay attention, tell a story and hold your camera steady (a tri-pod helps). This video was shot with the Kodak Zi8 – a hi-def vid cam that is simple to use and costs less than $200CDN.
Let me know about your interest in citizen journalism. There are a few of us around and maybe can get a Tweetup or MeetUP going here in Central Alberta.
