To learn about how to create a news story we have been studying the "Hey! You.. see.. so" story set up for journalism. In class we watched lots of videos that represent this form. I watched a video called the animal odd couple and it was great! My job was to analyze it for the HYSS form. I also watched one of Steve Hartman's "Everybody has a story"!

Our assignment was to find a person we could get a story out of and to compose a proper interview. This by far was the most challenging project because in your head you think "Camera, Person, QUESTIONS!!!" but really you have to think of lighting, sound, location, what type of questions, are they comfortable, are you doing every thing right, OH GOLLY WHERE AM I!!!??? Overall though its great, i loved watching my interview back and just listening to the story that Claire told me and it was amazing to see how far my interview came from the first one I conducted.
