Mojo Masterclass – As journalism becomes increasingly competitive, professional and community journalists need broader digital storytelling skills built around mobile journalism (mojo) literacies, apps and hardware. 

This Guerrilla Workshop is a fast track introduction to mobile journalism where participants get an overview of SCRAP, a digital storytelling language; edit rules and workflows; hardware (smartphones, lights, microphones and tripods); functional apps for shooting, editing, and post-production. More specifically, participants will get a basic overview of how to shoot, edit and publish a video story using just your smartphone. 

There are two workshops: this session for iOS and the next for Android. You should enroll in the one that suits your hardware. You will need the following: 

iPhone or Android smartphone with the following apps: 

iMovie (iOS), Kinemaster (iOS and Android) -- download both if you have an iPhone; 

We Transfer (iOS and Android); 

Ferrite (iOS); 

Vont (iOS and Android);
