A group of students at Cambridge Community Television took on a class project in a video production class: a short documentary on Citizen Journalism. The documentary they produced puts many “professional” efforts to shame – it’s an impressive, creative and well-produced introduction to the field of citizen’s media, with a focus on projects in the Boston area. It’s viewable online and features a number of smart citizen’s media people, including Steve Garfield, Lisa Williams and Bill Densmore, as well as yours truly. Check it out.
(Personally, I prefer the term “citizen’s media”, as much of what’s most interesting to me isn’t journalism, but people expressing opinion, talking about their lives, etc. But hey, it’s an excellent piece and probably all for the best that no one wasted time arguing terminology…)
