Recently, members of Bulldog TV, Intro to TV Production and Video Journalism attended the Lights! Camera! Action! Media Production Conference for high school students at Millis High School. The conference is sponsored by the New England Chapter of the National Academy of TV Arts and Sciences.
The event offered students an opportunity to meet their peers and view work from various high school media programs. Conference speakers included a panel discussion with New England Cable News (NECN) anchor Steve Aveson, business reporter Peter Howe and anchor Mike Nikitas who discussed how social media is being used in daily newscasts. After the presentation, the anchors eagerly fielded questions from the audience.
High School students from across New England were offered a variety of workshops to attend. Workshops included: Shooting in 3-D; Special Effects Make-Up Demo; Discussion of Editing Software; Being an On-Air Talent with NECN reporter/anchor and former Miss Massachusetts Jackie Bruno.
ORRHS Video Journalism student Evan Martinez stated, “It was insightful and I learned a lot about real world media production.”
