Investigative Stories with User-Generated Content
Documentaries French Translation
Friday, September 27
10:45 am - 12:00 pm
Lecture Hall 150, HafenCity Universit├Ąt (HCU)



In this unique panel, film and documentary professionals explain how to locate UGC -- user-generated content such as amateur videos -- to support your investigations and build your stories. The panel will cover how to identify relevant amateur material, trace and vet the source, deal with copyrights, and make a proper video story with it. Working for the BBC, Purity Mukami exposed human rights violations in Sudan. Evan Williams just won an Emmy Award for his "Myanmar Killing Fields" documentary, based on extraordinary UGC. And UC Berkeley's Andrea Lampros 
co-founded the university's Human Rights Investigations Lab to teach students how to find and verify UGC. 

French translation for this session is provided by CFI, the French media development organization.
