Showcasing Student Work!
Thanks to Google Video, I'm able to showcase student work at WCN. This first showcase features the work of Mike Wolenski as well as Luke Garrett.
You may recall my blog entry in Feburary where I related details about how these two young men currently work weekends as newscast directors at competing Youngstown television stations (while they participate in a full-time class schedule at Westminster).
It turns out both are also enrolled in my BC 312 course (Broadcast Journalism II/Television Reporting). Sure they're cordial to each other and some might even suggest friends, but deep inside burns an intense rivalry (LOL).
The first story comes from Mike Wolenski. After holding the Northwest Regional Science Olympiad for nearly 20 years Westminster College says goodbye to the event. The final Westminster-based Science Olympiad welcomed 900 high school and middle school students. The County Line's Mike Wolenski shows us how some of these students tested their skills, knowledge and problem-solving skills.
The next story is from Luke Garrett (a BC Capstone Weblogger). The County Line's Luke Garrett takes a different approach to storytelling by staying behind the camera shooting and producing a video essay profiling a Lawrence County man known as Cowboy Rick on the chainsaw carving circuit. This story introduces us to this colorful neighbor who wants to become a full-time chainsaw wielding wood carver.
So what do you think about their stories? What do you think about showcasing their work on Google Video and my blog? I welcome all feedback!
