The lesson was organized for convicts from the SIZO-2 housekeeping unit, who are employed in the cable television studio of the institution.

Kristina Melikhova, the correspondent of TV-KOM of the city of Biysk, told the convicts in detail about the basic rules for creating a video clip. Outlined topics and events that can become news stories and form the basis of the plot.

– On average, the plot lasts 2-3 minutes. The topics for the stories can be different: how are everyday life in the detention center, sports and festive events, the journalist explained.

During the master class, the inmates learned what life, stand-up, synchronization and intershum are. We got acquainted with the principles of work of a videographer and the basics of editing.

The knowledge gained at the master class was simply necessary for the convicts. After all, the cable television studio in the institution appeared relatively recently – in December last year. And the convicts are just beginning to take their first steps in journalism, trying to shoot their own videos. During the master class, they asked journalists many questions and promised that they would apply the knowledge gained in practice.

It is worth noting that cable television studios are currently operating in all institutions of the Altai Territory Penitentiary System. Through cable TV studios, convicts are broadcast various films, social video materials, and lectures. The convicts also create their own news programs about the events that took place in the correctional institution.
