J343 | ALL | Letsinger-Miller
P: J200, J201, J210. Course is an intensive writing course designed to
get students familiar with broadcast style. Much of the writing is done in
the classroom using wire copy, fact sheets and other materials. Students
will learn to incorporate soundbites, write leads, and write from
interviews. In the second half of the semester students will be
incorporating video in their scripts and get some hands on experience in
the lab where they not only write a script but are expected to edit the
video to match. Video is provided, there is no photography involved in
J343. While much of the writing is done in class, video editing is done
during a designated lab period assigned outside of class. Students are
expected to visit the lab once a week to complete editing assignments.
Labs begin midway through the course.
