Is sitting in front of a camera and reporting the news as easy as it looks? Students in grades 7-12 recently found out at The University of Findlay, where they learned about broadcast news production. The program, titled Lights, Camera, Action!, was co-sponsored by The Arts Partnership of Greater Hancock County.
Andrew John du Fresne, UFTV manager, and some UF communication students, taught the daylong course.
Participants worked in teams to learn the technical and creative aspects of producing a news segment, and to write news stories and scripts. UFTV’s studio and equipment were used for recording and editing. Here’s their final product:
