FFA National Convention
This is my second backpack story of my Blue Jay Journal TV career and I knew from the very beginning that I wanted it to be something meaningful and relevant to what is going on in WHS, the community, and even the world.
After discussions with my adviser (MT), I decided that I should do a story on the FFA National convention that I would be attending.
Historically at our school, when a story is produced about FFA it normally goes in the funny direction, but I wanted to take a serious look at what FFA kids do.
As you can see, the theme of the convention was ‘Transform.' FFA, as an organization, must stand up and make the changes that we know needs to be made in our communities and in this world.
This story was very different in the sense that I had to get all of my b-roll before I did any of my interviews. This was definitely challenging when it came to editing later on. I made sure to video horizontally on my phone so the video would fill the screen and took pictures of things I was unable to video.
When we got home I asked three Washington FFA Chapter Members for an interview, they all gave inspirational interviews. The script writing came easy, as their interviews all fell into place seamlessly.
After my script was approved, I started editing right away and discovered that one of my interviews had microphone problems. So with a quick re-interview, I was able to edit and piece this story together to end up with a fantastic final product.
I truly believe that this story showed a different side of FFA and everything that we as a chapter and I as an officer put into this world. I hope that you are able to see a different side of FFA now.
