-Each publication is different and has different needs
-Also think of non-news outlets like institutions, foundations, NGOs, universities, etc.
-Pitch story and format that is right for a particular website
-Between 2 – 3 minutes is standard for video/multimedia (longer or shorter and you lose audience)
-Raw, rough or polished?
-Multimedia journalists are creating their own production companies
-Sometimes it’s OK to give it away to citizen journalism or self-published sites. It builds portfolio and might open doors in the future. That’s the point of NewsWorks.org.
