Meet the Fair Board
by Emma and Jon
When we first got our list of possible story topics, right off the bat we went for the story on the fair board since Emma knew some people who were involved in it.
We interviewed Irma Wehmeyer. She has been involved in the fair for over ten years. We also interviewed Joe Groppe who has been a member of the junior fair board for the past few years.
We slated and logged, then backtimed our story as we wrote the script. Once we were on track, we started to edit the video. After getting some pictures from the official fair website, we added in the b-roll.
The best part of any story is learning something new while creating it. This story was no different. We had no idea the fair board did so much to put on the fair every year. We were amazed by how much time they put into it!
We hope you learn as much about the "behind the scenes" of the fair as we did. Thank you for watching!
