ACE10 Week of Apr 8 | Get Ready for MulgraveTV

  1. Ruby and Stephen and Eduard will do their ACETalk
  2. Over the next month you will plan a video/film and present a news story for MulgraveTV. Don’t think of this as a report. It is all about multimedia storytelling.

  • Decide on your news story or subject about Mulgrave, Student Life, North Shore or beyond. Your story can take you way beyond Mulgrave, but it must still be grounded as appropriate or relevant for a Mulgrave audience. It could be about athletics, culture, politics, human interest, the environment, education, the school play, and more. You can of course use humour or even parody or satire, like The Onionhttp://www.theonion.com/
  • Decide on your format: narrative, host/commentator, or interview (minimum 2)
  • Decide on your B-Roll: visuals and audio that back up the story
  • Decide on your opening and closing
  • Decide on your crew roles
  • You will have 2-3 minutes to tell your story
  • Your MulgraveTV Outline is due Thurs April 11: MulgraveTV Outline ACE10
  • The video news story is due in class on Tues May 7 ready for viewing
  • Please submit as an uploaded YouTube clip if possible
Please submit the following outline to me by next class: MulgraveTV Outline ACE10
