Television News Magazine Production

219 West

Course Details

Students will work in teams to produce stories of approximately 10 minutes and create a monthly magazine-format show. They will develop their storytelling skills by identifying compelling central characters and their stories, connecting them to larger issues or common experiences. They will concentrate on in-depth reporting and interviewing techniques and be introduced to sophisticated writing and audio/visual approaches that sustain longer-form pieces. The finished product may qualify as a capstone project.
