Hey everyone! Happy New Year! The first blog topic of the year is New Quarter, New Goals. We are now in the 3rd Quarter which means new goals. So, here are my new goals for this quarter.
The first goal of this new quarter that I have is to be better at coming up with five points and scripts. Since I am in spot feature for STN me and my partner for the competition, Mia has to be able to come up with a news story in a few hours and edit it in a few hours too. So there isn’t really much time to come up with a full script so we have to think off the top of our heads. This is also helpful when I have to some up with five points and a script for news story.
The second goal for the third quarter is to sound more natural when I am doing voice overs or radios. I feel that sometimes when I am recording my voice it sounds like I am reading off a script and it doesn’t sound very natural. In our Inside Scoops which are heard on FM 97, we have to sound like we are having a conversation. Sometimes when you have a lot of information for an event you can sometimes go really monotone. So, for anything voiceover related I want to make sure that I don’t sound too monotone.
My last goal for the third quarter is to be better at shooting b roll. In news stories b roll covers up interviews and it can show what the person is talking about. In some occasions b roll isn’t the easiest to film sometimes because of the things that the person that you are interviewing is saying. Since things move so fast in this world, it is hard to get a perfect shot that is well framed and it is in focus. This can also help me when I compete in spot feature and in the crazy 8’s new magazine.
So those are my goals for this third quarter! I am so excited for what this third quarter brings, Like PSAs and STN! Thank you for reading!
