Backpack Journalism Camp: July 7-11

gentile_forgottenwar1_highrese-Communication would like to offer you an exciting opportunity this summer at Olathe Northwest High School. Bill Gentile, the “Backpack Journalist,” will put on a workshop for students July 7-11 at ONW.

Mr. Court Allam, Convergence Journalism instructor, had the opportunity to attend Bill’s workshop in Washington, DC this winter and it was an incredible experience. We hope your student will take advantage of this opportunity to learn from one of the best video journalists working today.

Emmy award winning backpack video journalist Bill Gentile teaches people to produce powerful TV and web productions. Backpack journalism is the concept that anyone can be a “one-man-band” to shoot, edit, produce and distribute stories.

Students will learn how to plan and film video journalism stories. Bill will guide them through the editing process to tell stories using dramatic arcs and incorporate the three-act structure into their own work.

The camp is July 7-11 from 8 AM – 5 PM. The cost is $250 for the entire week.

Contact ONW eComm instructor Court Allam at or (913) 908-0976 with any questions.
