|Student Contribution Band:||Band 1|
|Administered by:||School of Arts & Social Sciences|
Students are introduced to radio and television journalism, and to the new roles that these media now fill on the web. Students are introduced to broadcast equipment, such as microphones and cameras; they learn how to record voice, how to perform basic broadcast editing, and how to produce audio packages. Students are introduced to the basics of camerawork, and of how to present stories in a visual way. Tutorial exercises develop broadcast newswriting, sound gathering, camera work, interviewing, voice production, vocal style and audio and video editing skills. Students produce pieces for the JCU digital media platform. The subject develops generic journalistic skills and cultural literacy, hones newswriting skills learnt in earlier subjects, and encourages students to develop distinct ways of presenting journalistic stories.
