A videographer is part director, part sound man and part editor. You’ll be in charge of the images the public sees on television, on DVDs and on movie screens. You’ll work in the studio, in remote locations, and as a part of the post-production team that edits and prepares movies, television shows and other video productions. working in TV, motion pictures, music video, sports events and documentaries.

Magazines operate very much like newspapers, with departments, editors, space budgets, and advertising, but magazines differ in a few important ways.The potential lifespan of a news release is much longer for a magazine. A monthly publication might not use your news for several months. Depending on the printing and preparation schedule, your release could appear as soon as a week or two after you send the release or as late as six-months later. The nice thing is that whenever your news appears, the information remains in front of the reader for a full month instead of just one day.(

The editorial focus and format of a magazine are usually more specialized than those of newspapers. “Focus” refers to the subjects a magazine covers; for instance, Linux Journal focuses on Linux in general while ComputerWorld might focus on Linux in the enterprise. “Format” refers to the way in which a magazine’s news and information is presented, usually as a particular mix of regular columns, articles, features (main stories), shorter pieces, and editorials. Magazine stories don’t have to be as “newsy” as newspaper stories. To a greater degree, a magazine researches and creates news rather than relying on current events.

General-interest magazines try to appeal to a large segment of the population. Special-interest magazines target a limited, well-defined community of readers who share a particular interest along with associated activities and concerns. Special-interest magazines are good targets for the Linux community, especially those focusing on Linux, operating systems, storage, security, computers, and information technology. The key factors are editorial relevance and appeal to the publication’s target audience.(
