COMM 314 - INVESTIGATIVE TV REPORTING
This hands-on production course emphasizes investigative reporting and the production of compelling and timely short form magazine segments for television and the internet. Students will research, write, and shoot high quality segments on local issues. We will focus on finding the story, developing the storyline, gaining access, conducting "on the street" interviews and confrontational interviews, shooting styles, and editing techniques. There will be in-class workshops on story structure and building dramatic tension in a story. We will screen and discuss a wide range of programs that illustrate different approaches to investigative reporting. Students will work in production teams to gain experience in the collaborative process and work under strict deadlines. Projects will be produced both in the studio and on location.
