ANB 5.0 - WNN October 5, 2018

This week I was on the special segments team, I was the main camera man and editor. We decided to cover homecoming because our homecoming dance was Friday and our game was Saturday. For the segment we did a man on the street asking members of our homecoming court about what their plans were for homecoming. As for our script, all we had to write an on camera host into and closing, which where very basic. Then we had to come up with some question to ask. We came up with questions such as who are you bringing to homecoming?, will you be at the Homecoming game on Saturday?, will you be at the SAT on Saturday?, and what’s your favorite song to dance to? We also prepared some follow up questions for what we had, then we went out and filmed. To make our segment entertaining, we made sure that our story moved quick and had comedy in it. For our segment it was important that our on-camera host new his questions and was able to ask follow up questions to keep the conversation going. My job as cameraman was to be able to remind him of a question he might of missed and make sure that what we were getting would be usable, and if not, to be able to film it again.

ANB 1.0 - WNN September 7, 2018

This week I was on the School News Segment Team with Preston. This week we did a story on the different core classes and CTE pathways we offer at this school. For my part of the job, I was in charge of filming all the interviews and editing the final project. For our broadcast media class and WNN, I feel that eventually, our broadcasts will be seen by all students at our school. With a bigger crowed we could start doing advertisements and be able to afford higher quality equipment.

ANB 3.0 - WNN August 31, 2018

This week I was on the Sports, Com, Weather & Surf segment of the show. Our two main jobs where getting a script and recording it and taking pictures to go along with text layovers over the VO. I was on this segment with Preston and we split the work up. We both helped on the script, both recorded the VO, both took pictures, and both edited. Because of the vast amounts of content that is created and broadcasted on the radio, TV, and other content based broadcasts. Having this in mind the US government created an independent agency responsible for these regulations, and thus the Federal Communications Commission or FCC was born. The FCC presides over six different areas that include Broadband Media, Competition between companies, Spectrum services, the Media as a whole, Public Safety and Homeland Security, and the Modernization on the service its self.

What does it take to be a successful film Director? Explain the broadcast industry roles of a Project Manager, Executive Producer and Director of Photography. What specific career paths interest you and why? Lastly, what was your favorite moment, segment or real-life experience from this week in Broadcast media? (6 sentence minimum)

This week was a hard week for filming, first it was a three day week due to school being closed on Thursday, also on Tuesday all seniors had to take the SBAC test which made us miss class. This week I was on news story again. On Monday Our news story team prepped for a news story on Word of the Week, it wasn't until the end of the period when we found out that they weren't ready to be filmed, so with only about 15 min left in class we had to go back and come up with another story. luckily we where able to find a good news story on Japanese foreign students visiting our campus from Ishigaki, Japan. unfortunately on Tuesday I wasn't able to help on Tuesday, however my team mate Preston was able to put in the work and get most of it done. On Wednesday we went out again to get a couple more b-roll shots and then I finished up the editing.

To be a successful film director, you need to have a specific "image" of what you want your final product to look like. The film director is responsible for a films artistic and unique aspects

A film director is a person who directs the making of a film. A film director controls a film's artistic and dramatic aspects and visualizes the screenplay (or script) while guiding the technical crew and actors in the fulfillment of that vision. The director has a key role in choosing the cast members, production design, and the creative aspects of filmmaking.[1] Under European Union law, the director is viewed as the author of the film

ANB 4.0 - WNN August 16, 2018

This week I was part of two segments, I was an on camera host and was apart of the school news team. For my school news job, I helped out with filming but my main job was editor. For our school news segment, I think our production value increased. We had a good and coherent story, we had nice b-roll shots, and had an overall great video. Our main challenge was filming, we had a good plan and we new what to do but we couldn't execute. The first challenged we encountered was trying to find students to interview. Because the rubrics we were doing our story on where so new, not to many students new enough about it to answer our questions. We then decided that we should interview teachers instead which lead us to go back and create some new teacher focused questions. That was our main problem but we were able to overcome it and move on. This week one thing we got to do is make sure that our interviewees can answer the questions we ask. Next week I will be working on the School News Story segment again, as of now I'm not sure what our story is going to be on but when we are filming we need to make sure we get good interview composition and get enough b-roll.

ANB 6.0 - WNN August 10, 2018

WNN is an acronym that stands for Warrior News Now. It is our student made school news show that our Broadcast Media class creates and airs every week. There are four different parts of every show, there is the School News segment, the Sports, Community, Weather & Surf segment, Special Segment, and an On Camera Host segment. This week I worked primarily on our Special segment part of the show. I helped come up with the idea of a "man on the street" type interview and was the main camera man for the segment. I also helped the Sports, Community, Weather & Surf segment by taking a majority of their pictures for them. Next week I will be working with Gavin on the On Camera Host segment and the School News segment. I hope that ill do a good job as a host and find a good news story. This week we didn't have any real problems, the only thing was trying to get a good shot outside because the sun was creating a lot of shadows but we were able to get some shots.

Interview Composition

In a host shot the person on camera addresses the audience by looking directly into the camera as if he is talking to the cameraman. In the interview shot, the interviewee does not look into the camera but rather looks at the person asking the questions, the interviewer. The background of a good interview shot should relate to what the story is about, to create depth to your shot. When setting up an interview shot you need to avoid flat angles. A flat angle is a term used for shots with bad and boring backgrounds, such as a blank wall, a hedge, or a fence. These shots are boring and don't inform the viewer about the story, it doesn't create depth. When setting up for an interview shot you have to make sure that your interviewee has look room. To create look room you should positioning your interviewee to make it look like they are looking across the space. The shot should also be in the rule of thirds, with the eyes of your interviewee in either the top left or top right intersections. When setting up for a shot you have to create "the line". The line is a term used for the way your shot should be arranged, with the camera pointed at the interviewee with the interviewer just out of the frame with the interviewee looking at the interviewer, this angles your interviewee and allows to create look room.

The interview shot is the foundation of any good profile story. There are a lot of things that go into creating your shot but I believe the most important part comes after you hit record. I believe the most important thing is to get the story you need from your interviewee. This can be done by preparing good questions that will lead to the story you want. Another thing the interviewer has to do is ask follow up questions to make sure you get the most information out of the questions you have prepared. To make the interview process easier the first thing you should do is send the list of prepared questions to the person being interviewed in advanced to let them prepare. Another thing you should do is make the interviewee more comfortable.
