This video commemorated the first pep rally at McCallum since the pandemic started in 2020 and marked my first live event coverage in almost two years. It reminded me of how challenging it can be to rely solely on b-roll from one event, instead of being able to revisit locations to get additional footage in the event of poor video quality or when there weren’t enough shots. As I continued to uncover aspects of broadcast that were lost during my time in online school, I gained an appreciation for on-location journalism.

Recognitions: Second place – video news package, Quill and Scroll Writing, Photo and Multimedia Contest (2022); Excellent – broadcast news story, TAJE (2022); Part of my First place – Broadcast Journalist of the Year portfolio, NSPA Individual Awards (2022)
