Fresh eyes (and ears) on journalism

March 1, 2010

Today, British multimedia journalist and blogger Adam Westbrook launches a new series called Fresh Eyes on Journalism. His idea was to ask several people active in disparate fields to talk about the future of journalism. My contribution, about music and journalism, was posted today. Enjoy!

10 Projects you MUST see, NOW!

Here’s a great post from multimediashooter.com that needs no further introduction than this: stop, look and listen….

I Got a Blog

September 10, 2009

Here’s a pretty funny take on blogging from my former colleague Adam Jadhav, a talented multimedia journalist who has left St. Louis on an international freelancing adventure. He was ably assisted in this little parody by Joel Currier, a Post-Dispatch reporter. (NOTE: Some language in this is decidedly NOT family friendly.)

Free multimedia apps for journalists

July 3, 2009

I commend multimedia journalist Adam Westbrook, who wrote this post for Innovative Interactivity highlighting several free applications for multimedia journalists.

In the post Adam mentions a couple places he likes to go to find license-free music for his projects. If you can’t create the music yourself or find someone who can, these are good options:

Jamendo
I still stick by Jamendo as the place to go to get licence free, quality music for your productions. The quality of the music is high, but it will take a long time to find that perfect piece (my advice: only search for the French musicians!)

There is, however, a challenger in town…

Humtoo
Works in much the same way as Jamendo, utilizing a community of amateur music producers to create a whole array of sounds for multimedia types. The difference is that Humtoo seems to aim itself more at the professional media market, with clients including ITV and Current TV. It also has a forum where producers can request the types of music they want.

Music for broadcast is royalty free…but for everything else, it seems you might have to negotiate.

Thanks Adam!
