ANB 2.0 - WNN November 30, 2018



On WNN, we spent two weeks planning and finalizing this show, due to school holidays shortening the time in class. I took the lead on our news story about the 1000 crane project organized by the Japanese Club. I think we did really well putting the story together and having the necessary visuals to accompany what our interviewees talked about. I did think there might be some better shots for a couple moments, but nothing major or memorable. Overall, it sounded great, looked great, and I'm really happy with how it turned out. We're getting close to end of WNN for the year, and I think I took away more from this class than any other class I've had so far my junior year. I hope that the audience watching gets the info they need in the best way. My biggest takeaway from this class is simply making proper deadlines and knowing when it's time to work, and when it's time to play.

ANB 4.0 - WNN November 16, 2018


In WNN, I took the lead in our school news segment, where we interviewed PhD candidates about their studies in deep sea life and exploration, and how it affects us as a community here on the island. I think my favorite segment to do on this show is the school news segment, due to the balance of technicality and free flow opportunity. I wouldn't say I have a least favorite, but the one I choose less often than the rest would be the special segment, since it doesn't quite have the solid structure the rest of the segments have that I enjoy. Our next show will be a story about making 1000 paper cranes, and a post Thanksgiving turkey hunt.

ANB 1.0 - WNN November 2, 2018



For the start of November, I did the sports and community segment of WNN with Dawson. I unfortunately wasn't there for the second half of the week, due to my performances in KPAC. I'm glad I was able to help as much as I could for the short time I was here. Overall, I believe the best way we can increase viewership is through more advertisement throughout the school, and encouraging more teachers to check us out and show it to their students. Meeting the deadline of our show is critical both for our well being, as well as preserving the sanity of our teacher, who always makes sure the show goes up. If we get things done a little early, it also means a little relaxation and celebration on Fridays, which is always nice.

ANB 1.0 - Evaluate the evolving relationship between broadcast media and society for its impact on the broadcast industry.
ANB 1.1 - Assess broadcasting as a communicative medium used to captivate, inform, motivate, or entertain.

ANB 6.0 - WNN October 26, 2018



On this week of WNN, I filmed and edited the music video for our special segment, where one of our own, Dawson Fo, sang and played "Romance" by CSRB. In every week of WNN, we have an intense grind to get work done from day one, to day four, when it should be done and ready to be put together with the rest of the segments. We have to finish our plan by Monday, be done with filming on Tuesday or Wednesday, Then have everything edited and ready to submit by Thursday. Friday keeps the ball rolling by having us work on our blog posts, review our episode, and plan for next week. It's important that we don't fully separate from each other when we have our segments though, so that our finished product flows together perfectly. It's important we also communicate with others outside of our class in order to ensure a successful production of the show.

ANB 3.0 - WNN October 18, 2018



For this week of WNN, I was placed in the school news segment where we covered and discussed the use and misuse of the technology at our school. I personally believe the policy we have is fair, yet it feels a little odd to offer a WiFi service only to have it locked and unable to access through "legal" means. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act, or DMCA, is the 1998 United States copyright law that implements two 1996 treaties of the World Intellectual Property Organization that criminalizes production and dissemination of technology. This essentially means that the original works someone made is protected by this law, in the event of another person attempting to steal said works. An example of this in the broadcasting industry would be someone trying to pirate movies from large studios. The DMCA prevents that from being a legal action.

ANB 3.0: Comply with legal and ethical practices used in the positive production and distribution of broadcast media.
ANB 3.2: Evaluate legal and ethical behavior related to the creation, use, and distribution of broadcast content that minimizes the risk of legal or moral consequence.

ANB 5.0 - WNN October 5, 2018



For our last episode of the quarter, I was placed in charge of the special segment, where we interviewed members of our homecoming court about their plans, whether it was the dance, the football game, whatever we could get. We organized our questions on our script, and I did my best to respond properly to whatever they said to me. We kept it entertaining by asking questions that would generate a good response. There was a bit of pressure being the one who asks the questions, because it's up to me to create the response that fuels the entertainment, which in turn led to a lot of bloopers. The people behind the camera can help with that by feeding responses to both myself and the interviewee.

ANB 6.0 - WNN September 28, 2018



In our second to last week of WNN, I contributed to both our school news segment, as well as the sports, community and weather segment. One thing I would suggest to improve our broadcast show would be to further involve different parts of the school, like some of our staff that many students don't know. When planning on what to film, I typically look at how we would like to portray our story, and communicate with my team in order to make the most out of our thinking. Pre-production will always be beneficial to our project compared to just going in without a plan, as well as boost the quality of audio and visuals.

ANB 4.0 - WNN September 21, 2018




I was involved in a couple segments this week on WNN, mostly with the school news segment on "stickiness", as well as the camera work in our anti-vaping PSA. For our school news, I think the video turned out really well despite the improvisation we had to do. It felt a little more all over the place when we had to simultaneously get shots for our behind the scenes segment. But we got through it, and it came together against some odds. For our sports, community, and weather segment, I thought all the pictures were very well made. However, they could've been taken with a little more originality, as well as have a certain theme to them. But the audio was very well made, and it synced well with the text. As for the special segment, I thought we put it together very well despite only taking one day to film. There were some pieces that could've been improved, and a couple shots here and there that could use a little more love. But overall, it was a solid PSA.

For this week of WNN, I was once again in charge of the sports, community and weather segment, with Dawson to help with additional voice overs. Virtual Reality has recently been making an impact on the broadcasting industry, demonstrated in many forms of media, such as sports and entertainment. This could make a huge difference on how we view many things, and even introduce a new medium of media intake. Content would be very different compared to other forms, as well as distribution in the sense that, depending on how companies wish to monetize this medium, it could only be accessible to certain people.

ANB 1.0 - WNN September 7, 2018




This week, I was placed in charge of our school news, where we filmed several different CTE Core Classes to show incoming sophomores what to expect in these classes. For our broadcast media class and WNN, I think eventually our broadcasts will be seen by just about everyone. With a larger audience, we could start doing advertisements and be able to afford higher quality equipment. Different forms of media intake have been created to satisfy several different consumers. All these forms of media consumption allow people off all ages and come ups to be able to watch and listen. I see the broadcast industry continue to rise and evolve to meet the demands of the modern world.

ANB 3.0 - WNN August 31, 2018




In last week's production, I was back on the sports, weather and community team. I teamed with Maceo to put everything together, and I feel like we've gotten better in efficiency. For the first time this school year, we've had a full week to plan, film, and edit WNN successfully, making the most out of our weeks time. The Federal Trade Commission, or the FTC is a bipartisan federal agency with two missions: To protect consumers and promote competition. This means the the FTC may conduct investigations, sue companies and people that violate the law, develop rules to ensure a vibrant marketplace, and educate consumers and businesses about their rights and responsibilities, all to protect Americas consumers, while also ensuring that our markets are open and free. The Federal Communications Commission, or the FCC, is an independent U.S. government agency overseen by Congress, that regulates interstate and international communications by radio, television, wire, satellite and cable. The commission is the United States' primary authority for communications law, regulation and technological innovation. I believe that these commissions are incredibly important for our country, as long as they stay in their lane, and not overstep any boundaries.

ANB 5.0 - WNN August 23, 2018



In our 3rd week of WNN, I was placed in charge of the school news segment, in which I had to cover the Japanese exchange students that visited our school for a few days. This included shadowing them as they're touring around school, and capturing footage of the presentations they gave in the Japanese language classes. To be a successful director, you need to first understand what it means to be a leader, and not just a boss. A leader makes a more successful director than any boss could, simply by the way they think and operate. Taking charge and bringing everyone up with you is the way of the leader, and is how all directors should be working if they want to find success. Their are many different "types" of director, such as a project manager, executive producer, or a director of photography. A project manager oversees and is accountable for everything that happens in a project, such as planning, filming, editing, and closing. The Executive Producer doesn't necessarily work on the project itself, rather they oversee what the producers do and operates certain legal matters, and makes sure the project is completed on time, and within budget. Finally, someone like the Director of Photography runs everything involving camera crews and light crews. I'm more interested being a director, or a producer closely involved with the project. It's hard to say, but my favorite real-life experience I've had during this week was following the students throughout the school, seeing some places I haven't actually been before, and getting to say hello to a lot of my old teachers.

ANB 4.0 - WNN August 16, 2018


For the second week of WNN, I was riding solo on the sports, weather and community news segment. Because of this, I was required to do all of the pieces of the segment alone. I did have some help from my teacher in the organization process of it all, but overall I feel like I've made and improvement from last week. Lacking a teammate wasn't exactly a bonus, but it helped me organize everything to my own speed and plan. For next week, I will continue to hone my abilities by trying to finish all my work before the deadline. The project we're doing next week is a news segment on the new exchange students from Japan. This includes interviewing and filming the students during the time they're here, and getting information as to what they'll be doing.
