Reflections from the week November 6th – November 12th

1. This week I learned…

1. Tenacity & Flexiblity is one of the most important skills you can have as a journalist. Those you are trying to get an interview with have very busy schedules and you have to be ready to work with their time no matter how inconvient it may be.

2. A story that stuck in my media consciousness can be found HERE.  A Make-A-Wish dream comes from true for a 7-year-old boy who was diagnosed with nephroblastoma, a rare form of kidney cancer. He had the incredible opportunity of being a star of his own movie about World War II.

3. This week we advanced in our group story by planning out our story. We are doing it on Jordan Loveridge. We were able to book the interview and get it recorded on the same day. We have started transcribing the interview and planning what B roll and what other voiceovers will appear in our news story.
