Week 2

In the morning session with Rebecca, we started looking at VT’s, what they are and what makes a good one. We then started discussing GV’s and after looking at examples, began to the purpose fo having one in a broadcast.

We then split into our VT groups and were instructed to come up with an idea for a VT around student life, and then to go out and film said VT. The idea my group came up with was ‘why did you decide to come to this university?’ – so we walked around campus filming shots and gathering sound for our VT.

In the afternoon class with Michael, we looked at finding sources. We were introduced to PA Mediapoint, IRN and BoB and were informed on how to use the sites to access the information we needed.

We then did some work on understanding Bias in journalism and how we can minimise it.
