After a devastating earthquake upended Nepal in April, video journalist Arun Karki and his family were left homeless. Against his family’s wishes, Karki headed straight to his office at Nepal Television News where, for the next few months, he scrubbed through thousands of hours of graphic footage, producing reports on the quake’s aftermath. Karki shared his experiences with the Dart Center, and offered tips for journalists covering natural disasters around the globe.
