We are now at an extraordinary juncture in the history of mankind, technology and communication. Ordinary citizens wield the power to communicate instantly, globally and in a language, the visual language, that supersedes both the written and the spoken word. This visual language knows no frontiers. It needs no translation. It is contingent on no corporate support. It is the most powerful cultural tool of our time.
Backpack journalism is the embodiment of this visual language. It is the embodiment of this power. The Backpack Journalism Workshops with Bill Gentile and American University enable you to harness that power to document and to change the world you live in.
In a four-day, intensive workshop Bill Gentile draws upon three decades of field experience to teach you the full range of skills for effective visual storytelling, from story conception to shooting to scriptwriting, narrating and editing a crafted story.
