Tyler Nash wandered into his bedroom and climbed onto his bottom bunk. “Mommy,” the five year old began, “can I ask you something?” He peered out the window overlooking his backyard. His mom stopped folding the pajamas in her hand and sat beside him on his blue and red striped bedspread.

New Post - MARKETPLACE FOR JOURNALISM New Post - MARKETPLACE FOR JOURNALISM Een jaar lang filmen levert uiteindelijk ongeveer 40 uur materiaal op. Met de HUMAN, de omroep die Oude Bomen graag wil uitzenden, is afgesproken dat we een film gaan maken van 60 minuten. De fase van het creëren is dus begonnen: In vaktermen noemen we dat: spotten. Al het gedraaide materiaal beoordeel ik op inhoud, beeldkwaliteit en bruikbaarheid. Hiermee wordt de basis van het verhaal gelegd. Of te wel; de bodem wordt bouwrijp gemaakt.

©Naveen Jamal I was reading an article in Fast Company about the launch of Emphas.is and came across an aspect about the model that I really hadn’t thought much about – the role and opportunity for publishers. Publishers, too, if they take a shine to a project on the site, can secure first publication rights by funding up to 50% of the project. Publishers also, of course, have to pay a negotiated fee for the photographer’s work. It’ll be interesting to see what stories get picked up by large publications. I’m sure it’ll happen sooner than later, but what I find more interesting is the possibility that publications could evolve the crowdfunding model and use it to fund their own projects.
