[ music intro] MEGHAN: Howdy and Welcome back to WriteRight, Today we are talking with Dale Rice, Director of Journalism Studies now at Texas A& M, about significant differences in hard news and peculiarity story writing. What is feature writing and how is it differentfrom hard news? DALE RICE: Well in general Id say in journalismyou can basically say that true narrations fall into two categories. They fall into the hardnews list, or they fall into the feature category. The hard news are those storiesthat are covering the events that are taking place out there. Feature tales are muchmore either playing off that or are recreation, droll, or life divulging various kinds of floors. Good examplesof feature kinds of writing: music, the arts, movies, menu, leisure of all kinds, manner. These are all things that parties have a great deal of interest in but may notbe the most pressing issues of the day. And so you turn around and look for ways to writestories about those things that are interesting, fun, engaging.MEGHAN: Okay, well when you write a featurestory dont you go about it in a much different mode? DALE RICE: Of direction both narrations are goingto have all of the basic facts. Theres no doubt about that. But the basic news story, youre going to concentrate on getting those essential facts high in the fib and beingvery direct with beings and getting to the point quickly and clearly. In the featurestory, you have an opportunity to have far more varied writing styles. And its notjust that you can play with one particular style however dozens of writing stylesthat you can use in feature writing, and it gives you a chance to, I reckon, have moreof an individual voice as a writer.It gives you the opportunity to play with languagemuch more. And, one other aspect of feature writing is that the vast majority of featuresare not written on a daily deadline. You have more duration , not only to work on the languagebut to work on the storey anatomy as well and to be addressed the room in which youre constructinga story, and where in the tale do you want to reveal the key element? Do you wantto save things for midway through or even important details for the end? You have thatkind of opportunity in story construction to say ah, I might not want to reveal all, I might want to keep this almost like a puzzle and divulge the most important thing rightat the end. MEGHAN: Now, an intro for a feature storycan be much different than a hard news story? DALE RICE: Yeah for the feature narratives, youcan get a lot more into anecdotal writing and explanatory writing and spend a lot moretime setting the background than you would do in a hard news story. So thats a bit of thereason that you have so many different approaches that you can take in a feature story.Youcan really hone in on somebodies figure, somebodys personality, the kinds of thingsthat really wouldnt come to play in a news story, right? I entail really how the personlooks, or how the person or persons behaves, or what theyre personal situation is, seldom contributesto whats happening in the news story, unless of course theyre a serial executioner thatscaught and then youd go after all of that sort of thing, or a casualty. But, for the mostpart when you have people who are involved in government, for example, discussing thebig issues of the day, what theyre wearing to the press conference is just not important.But in a feature story that entire appearing thing might in fact be the first three orfour sections of your storey as you try and establish every little detail about how somebodyis appearing and behaving during, for example, a news conference. So if you were writinga feature story about the same event you would take a particularly very different approach to it. MEGHAN: In hard news you are expected to grabthe book with a captivate contribute and hand the facts as quickly and clearly as possible.In a feature story you get the opportunity to use description and detail to entice yourreader.Your interviews can be more indepth and can focus on how people feel about anissue rather than just what happened. In Dale Rices Media Writing I and II students getthe opportunity to practice writing both feature and hard news fibs. In our next bout, Dale Rice will discuss ways to approach sensitive or difficult interrogations. Thanks for listening to this episode of Write Right, well “ve seen you” next time ..

( to class) So when you go into that Phillipes folder. You go into now. That’s how you get back all your material.( to camera) So I came to USC from NYUwhere did my undergrad. They have a great radio program here and at NYU, you know, it was a great school and everything. But it didn’t have much in terms ofradio and that’s what I’ve been wanting to do for quite some time. This Mastersof Science program used to be a twoyear program Master of Artistries for Journalism. Andthey had a oneweek boot camp. Not the full month, like what they have now. That would’ve beengreat. Last-place year is when I firstly started actually learning students how to useAdobe Audition. It was part of my work for Annenberg Radio News which is anoutlet here. You never genuinely feel like an adult until you’re out of school. And nowit’s like I’m schooling these people who are basically my age. A parcel of parties mostly wait acouple years to go into grad school. I “re coming” right after undergrad. These peopleare are my age. And it feels strange but at the same time its kind ofgratifying. I don’t feel out of place that is something that. I feel like I actually belongand I should be the person to teach these girls Adobe Audition. The boot campseems to be really planned. Last year it was three weeks to give that extra week; which is really, I speculate, helping the students realize, Alright brace yourself! The hard stuff is coming now! And I think they’re just assimilating it better.So thatwhen they do go into the media center when years do start, they have a betteridea what exactly they are getting into. I get I get a level of realization because I like itwhen I see that person, like, it clicks in their thought that they get it. I merely remember me being them. I get the fulfillment where it’s like, I wish I would’ve had grownup Victor to educate me Audition. Learn to utter mistakes and try to teach yourself to fix them byyourself. Too, Google is your best friend ..

My specify is Aly McGuire. I’ve created amagazine for this project and it’s a fad store exploring the culturaldiversity in fashion at the moment. I was kind of sick of the stigma that’s outthere at the moment and it’s always a negative perspective towards the sharingof different racial modes, so I thought that it would be really cool to stageand create like a photo series. I did the styling and photography myself. It was a lotharder than I meditated because I had to not only take the photographs, do thestyling, do the writing, have the courage got to go and do the interviews but alsotype it up, do the design myself.Go and get onto finished myself, but it was an experienceand I’ve learned so much from it. I think what’s next is doing freelance work. I’d quitelike to work with a team like Accent for example. Maybe send them some submissions, take a dive in the deep end and do something different ..

Pull Focus | Karim El Hakim – Backpack vs. Professional Journalism (1 of 12)

Thank you so much for meeting us today! We are very excited to have you here for thisinterview, the captain class later and the cinema screening tonight. The first questionI have for you revolves around the concept of knapsack journalism. Mostly it allowsany citizen to pick up a camera and become a journalist because everybody has their ownstory to tell. How has that affected the Arab Revolution and what prompted you and Omarto induce your cinema. We aren’t backpack reporters, we are professionalfilmmakers, and there is a difference. Backpack journalism is really the democratization ofimage making and story instruct. I think it had a very big impact on all of the Arab Springmoments because a great deal of day the mainstream media, instead of covering a narrative in an objectiveway, is usually trying to spin a story in a certain way and I think there was a bitof uncertainty as how to invent it.A lot of the time, especially in the early days ofthe Coups Tunisia, Libya and Egypt most of the report was coming out to peoplethrough YouTube or Twitter when the Internet was working. Of route after the Internet, after the Revolution more and more material is still coming out; there was also variousangles on different contests that happened that was or wasn’t covered by the media mainlynot covered by the media particularly well. So beings on the floor, parties with cellphones, parties with cameras “its what” the real eye on the street is. Whether you wantto call it journalism or merely being an eyewitness to something certainly had a profound effecton people because its truly where you go to find the truth is that immediacy. Findinga clip that was posted on the Internet five minutes ago is better than turning on theTV in many cases.Certainly there were many events that happened that the media completelyignored that had profound impact on the Revolution and the members of the movement of the Revolution becauseit really was happening minute by time. When I was filming I noticed it was probablythe most photographed Revolution in history because you would have 100,000 parties in anygiven area and 30 4 0,000 cameras. Everybody is can walk with their cell phone; ofcourse you have to wonder where does all that material get? I would say probably 80% of itis trash you can’t shape either heads or tails of. Apparently we’ve seen a lot ofclips of protestors being fire or killed filmed from afar or surreptitiously from balconiesand material like that. So that eyewitness, immediacy occasions, that probably aren’t appropriatefor mainstream media have a place through the Internet and through YouTube. It’s veryimportant that people have cameras because they are really our merely weapon against policebrutality, against tear gas, against totalitarian police states and corrupt police states.Obviouslythe media inside Egypt, the government media, is spinning a completely different story thanthe foreign media is and the people on the street are somehow caught in the middle. It’svery important parties continue to film because it’s the only way we can catch them doingbad things to beings. It’s been quite successful. People have been able to rally around particularmedia, particular footage that did come out of these Rebellions as proof of the dictatorshipsand savagery that they were protesting against and that really is particularly well representedin the mainstream bulletin ..
