Livestreamed video can take us inside Occupy protests, across the globe to Egypt and Syria, into the eye of Hurricane Sandy and to town meetings no one else is covering. Livestreaming allows journalists to blend into the story: You can get live shots without attracting attention, and you can get inside settings that are cramped or crowded. And livestreaming protects your footage by posting it online automatically, so even if your gear is confiscated or searched, your footage is already out in the world.

This workshop will show you how to stream, build an audience and get your story to the right outlets. Learn how to master the tools you need to cover the stories that are important to you.
