A young, energetic woman stands in front of a computer lab full of brainstorming kids, amused about how many unique names people have in her class, Smile You’re on Camera.
Broadcast News teacher at Waterford Kettering, Jesse Sutherland, calls on students for video story ideas to make into morning announcements on the Upstart. Some story packages will be done by tonight and others by the end of the week.
MIPA goers should expect to see video packages on various topics such as the musical entertainment, the variety show, and even more opinion-y, in depth topics such as “Is print really dead” and “MIPA survival guide”.
Students will be pairing up or going solo on story ideas, creating different angles from them, and pitching even more ideas throughout the week.
More and more ideas fill up the white board at the front of the class as a student writes them down, and more and more unique names are written next to those ideas. The Smile You’re on Camera students will soon be smiling on camera.
