It's a multi-platform media world out there: Are you ready?

As you all know, we established a new program of mini-courses in the Park School this year, taught by our wonderful faculty in their areas of expertise.

The goal of that program is to be sure that ALL Park students have the opportunity to develop skills and understandings across all media types and platforms -- even those that are not a part of their own Park degree programs.

Here's an example of that kind of opportunity: No matter what your career goals, the ability to shoot and edit video -- on deadline -- is the kind of skill that could make YOU a better candidate for that job or internship than everybody else in that candidate pool.

I can't think of a better way to spend a few Friday afternoons than developing a competitive edge.

Can you?

Broadcast News Reporting - 43535 - GCOM 29227 - 01
Class meetings 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Fridays: 3/20, 3/27, 4/3
Park 219.
Instructor Jerry Gambell.

This course will focus on the basics of researching, writing, shooting and editing the TV news package. Working in small teams, you will be expected to forge local, topical news story ideas then follow through to create presentable news packages under tight time constraints. Packages may air on ICTV. Students will critique and analyze examples from local and national news broadcasts. Class will also cover the basics of camera usage, field aesthetics and non-linear editing. Basic knowledge of the broadcast style of interviewing & writing and the use of Final Cut Pro is helpful but not required. P/F only, 1 credit.
