Natalie and I had a week to put together a package, which is generous because CBC or CTV reporters usually have less than five hours! Nonetheless, I still managed to complain, haha. Here is the end product, no supers included as it will be made into a newscast and production does that. As our prof said, it needs work, ha!

On Friday, my group and I (Rotem, Morgan and Steph) went out on Loyola campus to get footage for a TV report. We decided to focus on transportation to and from the campus. We spent about two and a half hours interviewing, shooting B-Roll (scenery footage), getting the stand up right (I was nervous in front of the camera…hehe), and doing all this extra stuff. We were given a two-hour tutorial on how to use the camera and that was the hardest part of the shoot. There were so many things to focus on all at the same time. A nice young man was patient and a good interview for us! We took about four hours editing in on Final Cut Express Pro. It’s definitely hard and frustrating working four girls who have limited knowledge on the program but we got through it with junk food galore! I was in the editing seat and taking instructions and doing this and that but it was fun in the end. We were proud of our finished product. At the end of the 1.5 minute report, the other three girls did their stand-up to show the prof. This was fun stuff!
