This is an 8-week program from September – October for school credit (non-paid). Fan Media will train, develop and empower interns as mobile video journalists for social news coverage this football season. This is for journalism, broadcast and digital media students from the 128 schools that compete in the College Football Playoff.
Fan Media app is a social news company that is building a network of iPhone video correspondents and media analysts for the top 250 NFL, NCAA, NBA, NHL, MLB and MLS teams across N. America (Patent Pending).
The app organizes pro & college sports fans, former players and trained journalists as professional media through mobile phone videos, viewer voting and competition.
Sports fans compete to earn money, official status and media credentials.
Interns (correspondents) will provide 30-second iPhone videos covering their college football team on a weekly basis, including: news reporting, commentary, criticism, analysis, fan interviews, moments, trending topics, and public opinion. Fan Media Network will provide a correspondent kit with best practices for production quality and editorial direction.
Students will learn mobile video journalism as social news in the field, get on-camera, cover high-profile sports news, build their mobile demo reel and get into the Feeds of Facebook and twitter as organized and professional social news coverage. Videos can be shared from the app by fans onto Facebook and twitter as well as Fan Media’s social brand pages.
Interested students can apply by installing the app http://apple.co/1HhY2QQ, and making one video 30-second or less video about your college football team. It can be a season preview video or any of the ideas listed above. We will contact you in the app from our Newsroom to set you up from there.
