Overall, this one semester class taught me several new things about journalism, broadcasting, and interviewing in a fun and enjoyable way. My favorite project was the six word story, because I really enjoyed the simplicity of the video and the camera angles Sean and I used. I also was amazed at how great Final Cut Pro is, and all the new things you can do with it, such as color correction and the sound fading techniques. I think my least favorite project was the iAm Movie, because I did not like editing on iMovie, however it was a good start to the semester. In conclusion, I'm glad I took this class to increase my skills on Broadcasting and Journalism. I hope one day I go into Journalism for college.
As the school year comes to a close, we had one last project to do, a news package on an interesting story in the community. I decided to interview one of my favorite classes and teachers, Michael Faris, the main percussion director and teacher of Ladue. As Sean and I started, we got B-roll from Ms. Davidson who filmed the entire percussion concert, which was big help for us. We also interviewed a few of my good friends and students of Mr. Faris on what his class is like and how he teaches his kids. At first, Sean and I were nervous to interview Mr. Faris because we were afraid he would answer with many short answers. However, he actually answered very well and we received almost 10 minutes of an interview. The editing, however, was very tedious and a bit annoying. Sean and I got tired easily editing clips down to the millisecond. yet, the outcome was almost perfect. I am glad we got to end on a good note. I cannot wait to see what the next year brings me.
