Pitch story for Video Project #2

Assignment due next Monday:

Video Project #2:  Produce a video package you can play on your blog, or get published in the Journal.  The story should run between 1:00 and 1:30, and must include multiple sources, natural sound and your voice.  Tag it with… “For the Webster Journal, I’m __________” or sign out with your blog’s name.  Shoot this using your phone or a video camera and edit using Premiere.  Post this on the class website with a web-optimized headline. In the spot where we normally include an abstract, write an anchor lead using the guidelines discussed in class.

This is due for review in class and will be graded after 5 p.m. on Thursday.  Include the package script in the Comments section below your post. (50 pts)

Bring in story “ideas” based on our discussion today.
