The opening speech was made by the head of the Department of Media Studies and Journalism at ULAB, Jude William Genilo. The program was conducted by the assistant professor of the department, Kabil Khan.
The speakers discussed the techniques needed to create a visual story and how to make a video acceptable to the viewers. The psychological issues of the viewer, why a viewer will watch a video, how a story moves the viewer – all of these were discussed by Len Clark. Mike Castellucci discussed story art. He spoke about how to do journalism from any part of the world with a mobile phone.
