Electronic Photo and Video Communications

Student documetaries are expected to be 3-minutes or longer in length and include:
  1. Narration by the student reporter (call "voice over" or "VO"),
  2. A stand-up by the student reporter,  
  3. Video-taped quotes (called "sound bites") from at least 3 different interviews, and Appropriate graphics including identfiers and billboards.

Student reporters producing a documentary video must submit for approval an idea for their project.  If that idea if approved, studnets must begin asembling the information and video for their project and submt a 1st draft for approval before continuing.  Finally, student reporters producing a documentary video must submit for approval a complete script with all the necessary director and edit cues before prodeecing edit their video and do post production work on it.
