Fortnite Takes WHS and the Nation by Storm
by Molly, Jon, and Brennan
Unless you've been living under a rock, you probably have heard about a nationally-played video game called Fortnite. It's become popular so quickly that we had to learn more about why it's played by so many. We branched off the path of "typical journalism" in order to cover this topic.
It wasn't a struggle to find people who were willing to talk about the game. Actually, there were so many people who wanted to talk about it we couldn't interview them all.
After interviewing all of the guys who played it, we wanted to get a different perspective about the game. We decided to interview girls who were in relationships with guys who play Fortnite often.
After getting all of the interviews, b-roll was gathered of people playing the game on multiple platforms, including mobile. Next, we put it all together using our amazing video editing skills. After watching it with our adviser, we were finished!
We had such a fun time putting together this story and we hope it represents the hype of Fortnite well. Enjoy watching!
