We have two videographers on staff for the Prospective, and occasionally they need staff members for videos. I was in a fall foods taste test video earlier this year. Trust me, sitting down on camera to eat Oreos was a sacrifice.
Outside of school, I was on the news for legislation debate I attended and covered. It’s not on the news site anymore, but below is a screenshot from the story.
I was also recorded giving a digital tour of campus for a video that is yet to be posted, and I was interviewed again by THV11 on March 1 about an upcoming special election. Behind comfortable around cameras- whether you’re getting the shots or the subject- is a crucial skill to have as a journalist, and my participation both with staff videographers and local news has helped me develop that comfort level.
