Goodbye Columbia, Goodbye New York

They didn’t call it a “multimedia bootcamp” for nothing.

My time at Columbia Journalism School was one of my best experiences so far. Having learnt so much in just a week, I can understand why people travel from around the world to study there (and pay the big bucks to do so).

In five days our small class used professional production tools to plan, shoot, and edit a local story.

Duy Linh Tu is an absolute master.

Throughout my time in New York, despite being a nobody from nowhere (someone – not a journalist – actually asked if New Zealand was a Scandinavian country), I’ve found people at the highest level willing to pause to answer my questions, and teach me what they know.

Then, they’ll introduce me to someone else who’s helpful.

From the people to the pizza, this city is the best.
