New video series highlights reporting tips, techniques

This week we launched Story Shorts, a new series of web videos designed to help journalists share tips and techniques they’ve used on a variety of investigative stories. We’ve paired the minute-long videos with related resources (tipsheets, stories, webinars and audio) curated by IRE staff. We’ve even made a few of our tipsheets free for a limited time.

Our first set of clips features KSHB reporter Ryan Kath, who filmed a “Behind the Story” video for us earlier this year. Kath’s series, “Trail of Dirty Deeds,” exposed a widespread real estate fraud scheme and was a finalist for the 2013 IRE Awards.

A group of journalism students at the University of Missouri worked with IRE to repackage Kath’s footage into short, informative video segments. Topics include: Making paper look good on TV, chasing down tips, and capturing first reactions on camera.

You can view the clips and related resources at ire.org/storyshorts. If you’d like to participate in the project, email IRE’s Sarah Hutchins at sarah@ire.org.
