Bob Sacha is a director, cinematographer, editor, teacher, photographer and, above all, a collaborator on visual journalism projects. He’s created the video for projects that have won the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service, a National Emmy for New Approaches to News and Documentary Programming, a Webby, and the first gold medal ever given by the Society for News Design. His documentary short, BlindSight, about a group of blind photographers had its world premiere at DocNYC, the country’s largest documentary festival.
Bob is also an Associate Professor of Video Storytelling at the Newmark-J school at the City University of New York, where he teaches the wildly popular Video Storytelling for the Web, Social Video and VR 360 Video classes. In his past lives, Bob was a staff photographer at the Philadelphia Inquirer, a contributing photographer at both Life and National Geographic magazine, and a freelancer for more magazines than remain on newsstands. His new obsession is 360 Video and virtual reality.
