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 If you’d like to participate in the project, email IRE’s Sarah Hutchins at
