I was responsible for orchestrating the after-coverage of the four day rock cruise, Shiprocked. With the collection of material and experiences of the journalist team, I planned and executed a two week media stream.
The first aspect of the coverage was to incorporate a daily article with a “reliving” theme. I assigned each journalist a day and coordinated with them to apply publish their articles with the corresponding cruise day.
The second aspect was the video interviews recorded on the ship. In order to remain current, I produced the videos from our collective material in a very short time frame.
The third aspect of the coverage was fan integration. We collected quotes and photos from the cruise attendees in reflection to each of the 24 bands performing on the ship; as well as, fan written articles.
The final requirement for this coverage was the editing. I edited and managed each writer’s submissions. I also coached throughout the process and maintained the focus of the team.
Here is a taste of one of the daily articles: Shiprocked Cruise Aftershock: Relive Tuesday.
