Dear (existing and aspiring) Kernelites

Don’t be frightened.

With all of this talk of multimedia, technology you’ve never used and weekend-long workshops, it may seem overwhelmingly and obvious that you are going to get in over your head. You’re not.

Thursday kicks off our first multimedia workshop for the Kernel. We will be creating campus related multimedia and learning the process. Many of you have said you don’t know where to even start, but we’re all together in not knowing much of anything, this guy included.

Reporters, you’re not that far behind. Despite being up on camera technology, the photographers have just as much to learn. This is a great opportunity to be able to screw up. If by Sunday, you haven’t created a cohesive piece, it’s OK. It wasn’t an assigned story for the paper, and at the least you’ve learned the basics.

All of our productions will go onto our new multimedia site, kernelmixedmedia.com. As the semester goes on I’ll be working and tweaking this site to perform as smoothly as possible, and we’ll all be working to produce excellence journalism to upload to it.
