Begin Lives News Reporting Assignments

This week we will go over the technology being used to broadcast our news report.  

Each group will have time to practice using the technology along with sitting behind the desk.

During the week continue research and writing (along with filming outside footage) for the broadcast.

The goal is to produce a live broadcast the first week of November.

October 5-16

You will have two weeks to complete the next assignment:

Choice Halloween/Fall festival:

You are to create a video that relates to either Halloween or the fall.  What you do is completely up to you.  The video should be in the 2 minute-5 minute range.  Possible options include:

  • Movie remake/parody
  • “How to Video”
  • Original movie/skit
  • Any other idea you can think of

Your first assignment for this project will be a storyboard.  The storyboard is worth 25 points and needs to be completely thought out.  Use the storyboard to help create your video.  When your video is complete you will write a reflection paper discussing how your video changed from your storyboard to the final project.

September 14-October 2nd
