WHS Students Choose Peaceful Assembly
for National Walk Out Day
by Megan, Emma, and Cason
We knew that the Walk Out was coming up, and we wanted to cover it because we all knew the time and effort the student coordinators took to make the Walk Out possible.
The interview process and slating and logging took a long time because we interviewed nine people. To make sure that we met the deadline for the script, we made sure to slate and log all the interviews we did before the Walk Out first, so that we had enough time to slate and log the interviews from the actual Walk Out event, too.
For b-roll, we knew that the gun protest was happening at N-Sports near the time of the Walk Out. We made sure to get b-roll of that to include in our story. During the Walk Out we got different shots of the crowd and the speakers. We also got some pictures from McKenzie Dohm that we used throughout the story.
The editing process went very smoothly because the interviews flowed together very well. After putting all of the interviews down, the hardest part was finding spots to put the b-roll in that would make sense.
We really enjoyed doing this story because it was interesting to hear everyone’s opinions on the Walk Out and to see how it brought us together as a school. We had some challenges producing this story, but we are glad we got through it because we’re really happy with the final product.
