On air \\ While talking to the camera in front of them, junior Jayden Thompson and sophomore Knox Wilson read off of a teleprompter. “These episodes are produced for the students to watch to let them know what’s going on around them,” Thompson said. There are usually different anchors each time an episode is filmed.

Blue-i News is the news production program for the audio/video production class and is produced by the students in A/V 1, A/V 2 and practicum students. It is sent out for the school to watch once a month after going through the planning, filming and editing process. 

“It involves pre-production, planning, filming, editing and communication with people,” junior Jayden Thompson said. 

They’re informative for the student body, as well as a teaching aspect for the students in av class to learn how to edit, produce, and learn technical aspects.”

These news productions are led by the students in the class involving different student leadership positions. 

“The fact that there’s so many different technical aspects that it’s hard to cover all. Anchors, script, camera, lighting, and pulling different aspects together from paper to video,” Mr. Rodgers said.

The productions are sent out via link for the whole school to watch and enjoy. 

“They’re informative for the student body, as well as a teaching aspect for the students in av class to learn how to edit, produce, and learn technical aspects.” Mr. Rodgers said. 

These episodes are sent out to the school once a month, but have had a small delay due to COVID-19 the coronavirus. 

“Last year by this time we had four or five out,” Thompson said.
