Here's my first take at making the vocabulary shot list. Two issues I had were getting the pictures to appear clear and the video wouldn't post to Youtube.

Video Resume Shotlist

I want to have my video resume held in one of the press boxes that way it resembles the work setting I'm going for. If I can't do it there I'll ask my boss Mikey or Ernest if I can do it in their office. I would give a short bio about myself; where I'm from, my history in sports, why I chose Limestone. Then I would have a friend ask me questions.

  • What are my plans after graduation?
  • Talk about school. Why did I choose Communications? Do I want to do grad school?
  • What kind of work experience do I have?
  • Am I comfortable moving for work?
  • Why did I choose broadcasting?
  • How are my social skills?
  • What are some of my hobbies and goals?
  • Outside work that I've done such as CELP, missions trips, volunteering in the community.
  • Talk about where I want to be in 10 years.

The State of VR 2019

Personally I had used VR when it was first coming out on the Playstation 4 back in October of 2016. While it was very exciting then, what it has become now is a new ballgame. VR isn't just for video games as I believed it was first intended, but rather has stepped into a lot of different aspects. Now there are VR Worlds which doesn't restrict you to one setting, but offers an everyday life experiences. For VR it has a headset that allows you to look 360 at all the details around you. When I personally tried it I chose a balloon ride to space which was breathtaking. Of course there wasn't much to see, but I had never seen the Earth from that angle.

Augmented Reality has also made its way into the gaming world. AR replaces your physical reality with a form of digital media. Ashley said it best when he commented about Pokemon Go being a recent big hit in the AR field. You can interact with AR and it'll only continue to get better.

Interview and Camera Tips

Interview Tips

  • Have knowledge of your speaker. Know topics they can and can't talk about.
  • Let them create a story with their personal opinions or experiences.
  • Make them feel comfortable. Have good questions that keep them engaged.
  • Have them talking to you, not the camera.
Camera Tips

  • Defuse your lighting.
  • Have nose room, head room, no space above head. Eyes should be 2/3 from the bottom of screen. Make sure hands don't have too much movement.
  • Have a creative and proper background.

  • Key Light: brightest light that adds drama
  • Fill Light: adds to the key light's shadow
  • Back Light: lights up the back of your speaker. Separates them from the background.
