The Immunization Debate
Jon and Haley
Sometimes when we produce stories for BJJTV, we end up learning about the topic we are covering. This story is a great example. We learned a lot about vaccinations by covering it.
Going into it, we had a general idea about the debate over vaccinations. Since finishing the story, we feel like experts on the vaccination debate, even though we are not.
It is always interesting to do a story on a highly debated issue, and this one was no exception.
Jon interviewed Dr. Julianne Matt, while Haley interviewed WHS student Sarah Miles, who has not been vaccinated.
Haley ended up having to redo her interview due to a technical malfunction, but we got through it because both Sarah and Dr. Matt were very prepared. They both had amazing interviews.
Haley also got b-roll from her Health Occupations class, when we realized we did not have enough. We also found articles online to help add visually to the story.
After sitting with our adviser, Ms. Turner, one final time, we finished our story.
We hope you learn as much as we did making it!
