When starting this blog, I was thinking of different things I could consider my “passion.” In my mind I thought the only thing that has really become a large passion for me is making and editing stories in Blue Jay Journal TV.
This is my first and only year on staff, so I really only have one shot to get all that I have in mind for this class out into the open. I’ve appreciated every moment of it; from the lows that include stresses of barely turning stories in on time, all the way to the highs of getting recognized for a story that I spent so much time on!
I remember seeing seniors and juniors host The Friday Show when I was a freshman, and wanting to do the same. I thought it would be so cool to have a say in what goes on in that class. I’ve always been very fascinated by film and video editing, and I knew this class would propel my interest and turn it into something larger. Unfortunately, I never could take the class in the past, but now I get to and I’m glad I can.
I would recommend this class to anyone and everyone. Even if you’re not necessarily into journalism, it still can teach you helpful tips. You learn how to edit and produce videos, along with camera skills and public speaking. All of those things could be helpful to you in the future.
On top of that, this class gets along so well. It’s not hard to work with different people in the class. We all look like we’re having fun because we are having fun.
