Craft your on-camera personality with essential skills for the age of the 24-hour news cycle: gain confidence and comfort on camera whether reporting live or preparing recorded segments.
Today’s media landscape offers opportunities for students to experiment in a wide variety of formats including news correspondence, sports sideline reporting, entertainment media, documentary, live streaming and more.
Students will develop on-screen skills by training in a variety of styles and genres by writing and performing scripts, recording and producing live segments and conducting on-screen interviews. Daily practices will include improv exercises, recorded screen tests, and instructor feedback and critique. By the end of the course, participants will have worked collaboratively with instructors to produce a short, professional reel that captures their range and personality. This course is as much for those who aspire to become media personalities as well as for those who wish to gain confidence and panache in their public speaking skills and style.
