A U.S. passport is limited to 80 pages and over the last 10 years I have filled mine with travel. Travel paid for by people who hired me teach and consult. These global adventures would not have happened had I not first started to teach and share my expertise online. Sharing my expertise freely led me to paid gigs, invitations to speak at conferences and big-money consulting contracts. My favorite book tells the story of how I was able to quit my office job and go into business myself teaching what I love. What's your favorite book?

Instructor Biography

Robb Montgomery, Video and innovation strategy

Robb Montgomery has taught more than 10,000 people, just like yourself, how to make great-looking video stories with small cameras and smartphones.

His workshops and courses are used by reporters at CNN, The New York Times, Reuters, BBC, RTÉ Ireland TV, and many public broadcasters like VRT in Belgium and Mediacorp in Singapore. 

His Smart Film School video courses are required for every student at the EFJ journalism school in France. FH Journalism School, Notre Dame and the Danish School of Journalism also the education discount to issue his video courses to all students. Styria Media in Europe has an Enterprise-wide license that allows every employee full access to all of Montgomery's video training courses.

Why? Montgomery is a global expert in video storytelling and innovation strategy and is based in Berlin, Germany. He is the author of "A Field Guide for Mobile Journalism,”  and a new book on video storytelling to be published by Taylor & Francis (London and New York).

As a WAN-IFRA consultant, he works with journalists worldwide to develop mobile video projects and as a design-thinking expert, he leads internal teams at media companies to rapidly develop actionable prototypes and new products.

For Media Development projects in Egypt and Georgia, Montgomery developed the world's first mobile journalism school and has trained thousands of journalists in video storytelling, social media, and design thinking processes.

He produces diploma courses on mobile journalism at universities in Europe.

Montgomery was elected as a "Storyteller in Residence" for the Ashoka Foundation in 2015. 

In 2014 he launched the Smart Film School — an e-learning platform with course packs of video tutorials that teach social video, mobile journalism and documentary filmmaking. 

Montgomery previously served as an editorial art director for the Chicago Tribune, Page One editor for the Chicago-Sun-Times, and has redesigned several major newspapers including the Chicago Sun Times and the San Francisco Examiner.

His work with the investigative journalism team at the Sun-Times won him recognition at the Peter Lisagor awards and he has been awarded top honors in Society of News Design competitions since 1992.
