So you've decided that you want to be a Broadcast Journalist?
Many different thoughts go through you're while trying to first off figure out what story you want to pursue. After that, it's just a matter of getting everything that is needed for it and then putting it together.
For all clarity and purposes, I have already turned in my first news story, however as I was completing it, some (if not all) of these thoughts (or a variation of them) came across my mind at some point during the process.
2. What b-roll should I get?
B-roll is supplemental or alternative footage intercut with the main shot.
5. What questions should I ask in my interview?
And more importantly, What type of questions will get me the answers I want?
8. Agh, my video is over the 1 minute and 30 seconds allowed time.
Do I reduce it or do I leave it as is? I guess it depends on how much its over.
9. How should I say my tageline at the end of the video?
The tagline is when the reporter says their name and their station affiliation at the end of their story.
11. Should I include a graphic?
Is there something that can be said in a list form that the viewers need to see? Is it symptoms of a disease? Event details?
13. What does my script need to look like?
Should I add a NAT pop here? What SOT (Sound on Tape) do I want to use?
