I don't know how many of you read Lost Remote (www.lostremote.com), but if you don't, the debate is raging over there about video journalists, the future of photogs, and one-man-bands.
It all has to do with an interview with Lost Remote did with TV consultant Michael Rosenblum who says that two-person crews to report a story will soon pass us by. As the story says, "Why should you listen? Rosenblum coined the "VJ" name and brought one-man-bands to NY1 back in 1992. Since then he's trained VJs at the BBC, Oxygen Media and New York Times Television, just to name a few. And the VJ movement is just getting started. Earlier this month, KRON-TV surprised local TV newsrooms everywhere with the announcement that it will soon transition to VJs."
It's a very interesting read, and the detailed comments (more than 50) from people in and out of the business discussing the ramifications of this approach is riviting. Read it here...
