I often give these lectures, and thought that I might share one of them here with you.
The program is broken down into two parts, and each section runs about 30 minutes. The total is shorter than I usually speak, but there were time constraints on this presentation. My lectures usually tend to run 90 minutes and can go as long as 2 hours.
The content of these presentations are the accumulated lessons of cutting documentaries for the last two decades for FRONTLINE and NOVA.
I hope you find the information useful. If your organization/school would like, I am available to give an extended lecture in person.
Please leave comments on what you liked and did not like so I can make it better in the future. Also If people would like to see part two let me know and I will put it up as well.

Photographer John Moore is no stranger to combat. As a member of an Associated Press team in 2005, he shared a Pulitzer Prize for breaking news photography for coverage of the war in Iraq and he's done extended stints in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia, South Africa, Mexico and Nicaragua and elsewhere in the last 20 years.
Yet despite his relative comfort with being on the frontlines, Moore told the NewsHour from his hotel room in Cairo that his latest assignment -a six-week trip that took him to the uprisings in Egypt, Bahrain and Libya - might have been his most dangerous. Moore recorded the interview for us after sneaking out of Benghazi, Libya en route back to his home in Denver.
