PHS School Announcement Project
Project Overview: You are working with two or more other people to produce a news program segment of 90 quality seconds, targeted for Henderson Bay High School. The format is two co-anchors seated and discussing the news at HBHS in front of the green screen. You will want to do a two camera shoot with lights. One camera covers all ot the action while the other gets close up shots from a different angle. You will need to fill the following roles: Talent, Scriptwriter, Camera team, Director, Animator, and Editing team.
Talent: refers to the two hosts. They need to have a script and they should know it well. Reading at this point is not very acceptable. You could use a prompter (turn a monitor and scroll through a word document with large text) but knowing the script is better.
Script writer: Someone needs to write the script or create the outline for the script. It can be co-authored, or group authored, but someone needs to be in charge.
Director: the director is the final authority on the shoot. The director needs a clear vision of what the project is about and make sure all props, scripts, camera people...everything is in place and ready to go. Director is final arbiter on Pre-production phase of program.
Camera Team: two camcorders, one on a tripod and the other on monopod or firm hand with close up shots.
Animator: this is someone who will take the lead in developing the graphics package that goes with the video. The graphics need to include: background selection for the studio, Logo for the production team, and a moving flash animation that is converted to video.
Editing Team: two or three people who are responsible for the final product. There should be music, there should be credits, there should be tags that identify people in the lower third of the screen.

Assignment Format: You will work simultaneously at several roles. You will have a primary Pre-production assignment that includes planning with your primary team. Then there is production phase where all of the filming for your team is done. You may also be a specialist, filling in when and where you are needed. You might be running a camera, prompting, dealing with lights, or providing technical assistance with animation. Your team will also become a post-production team. This is where you edit your footage and get your video together.
