GSA at WHS
by Jack, Kaden, Zach, and Kate
As a team, we all instantly knew we wanted to produce a story about Gay-Straight Alliance. None of us really knew a lot about the club, and it intrigued us. We also believed the community should know more about this WHS club.
Getting the interviews was a bit challenging since the club is very small, but we managed to get a handful of members and one sponsor to interview for the story. Once we obtained all our interviews, we watched our footage and began to slate and log.
After slating and logging, it was time to write our first script of the year together. When scripting our story, we struggled with condensing all of the information we had from the interviews into a two-minute package. So, we re-watched the footage and kept only the necessary information to create the angle for our story.
Editing our story was the fastest part of the whole process. We laid out all our interview shots, put in our voiceovers, and inserted various b-roll shots we had from club meetings and posters promoting the club. Before we knew it, our story was done.
Overall, we are very proud of the product we created as a team and hope it brings more awareness to the Gay-Straight Alliance club and what they do. We hope you enjoy this story as much as we enjoyed creating it!
