Students hope to gain confidence from Smile, You’re on Camera class

When you’re shooting in front of a camera, anything can happen, and that can be very nerve-wracking.  The class, Smile, You’re on Camera, aims to help students drop those nerves. Instructor, Randy Scott, adviser of DTV at Davison High school, has big plans for his class. You may have saw the daily announcements on Monday morning, that’s just one of their many exercises used to help better their on air presence.

“We’re going to continue to do the daily announcements for the rest of the week.” said Scott.”Hopefully by the end of the week I can have them put together their own news stories and packages.”

Monday afternoon, students visited the set of WILX Channel 10 News. While there they had the opportunity to ask nighttime anchor woman, Lauren Evans, questions about having good presence on camera.

It seems that many students do tend to be very nervous on camera, and want to use this experience to help boost their confidence.  Rebekah Dobski, an Ovid-Elsie High School video student, wishes to accomplish just this.

“I picked this class so I could learn a little more about video.” Rebekah stated. “I’m hoping that by the end of the week that I will have more confidence when I’m in front of the camera.”

Stay posted for more great work from this great set of students.
