Makoto Nakamaru

Chief Producer of News Production Center, News Department, Japan Broadcasting Corporation (NHK), Tokyo, Japan

Sep 15-Nov 14, 2015. Working with Jay Hamilton, Communication Dept.

I’m a producer of a TV news program, constantly facing deadlines, lots of material, and viewers who are both demanding and fickle. With people spending more and more time on the internet, they are losing interest in television. To survive, the television industry has to adapt. I have the experience to make compelling reports for the existing television format. Now I have to learn how to create reports that appeal to a web-savvy, tech-driven society. While at Stanford, I want to investigate technologies and techniques that will help me do that.
