For this assignment, I went out to get audio coverage of the Crazy K marathon. I had no trouble getting the interviews or nat sound… that was even my favorite part. Afterwards, while writing the script, I had trouble making it conversational! I think that it was a bit stiff (as I am a news ed major) and thought that something to work on in the future is making my broadcast stories more interesting and lively. I also struggled with putting it in a certain amount of time… I had too much footage and I think I was talking too slow in the introduction parts. I also wasn’t sure how to upload to sound cloud, so I improvised and put a few pictures in to make it multimedia and youtube worthy. Overall, it was definitely a learning experience and I look forward to figuring out more in the future.
