The Multimedia Journalism Summer Academy for High School Students wrapped up at Sacramento State with students producing video projects on their smartphones.

News10’s George Warren and former News10 anchor Sharon Ito led the weeklong workshop, where students toured the News10 studios and received hands-on training in shooting, writing and editing a video story.  (Click to see the News10 photo album.)
