Channel 9 Internship
I recorded this package practicing a Piece to Camera and voice-over as well as attending a breaking story of an early morning house fire.
RSPCA Adopt Out
We interviewed the RSPCA and people who owned retired racing greyhounds that would be up for adoption.
I went out with a Journalist to cover a story on airbag recalls. I was able to practice a Piece to Camera, and had the journalist check and edit my version of the story.
I attended a court story on a man who was caught scamming money from people through ATM's. I wrote my version of the story with grabs from police.
I went out with a journalist on a story on the future of automotive cars. Seeing how the cars of the future will be and being a passenger in a car that almost drives itself.
I went out with a producer for a story on the vandalisation of train stations and trains. Staff from the Queensland Rail control room were interviewed.
I joined a producer on a story airing for Sydney Channel 9 News on pet food poisoning.
I shadowed a Journalist on a story of getting ready for the school holidays and what fun things parents could do with their children.
Throughout this internship I shadowed journalists who told me a lot about the industry and how to go about getting into the industry. I had a story recorded and edited into a package. I sat in the control room and the studio for the 4pm news on getting perspectives from different areas of the news room. Journalists showed me through their news program which is different to other news stations and where their footage is. I wrote scripts for every story I went out with a journalist on and practiced some piece to cameras.
