March Break Program - 2015

On Monday the 16th of March our March break program began. Orientation began with some ice breakers, such as two truths one lie, in which each of us had to guess which statement was the truth and which was the lie. We then moved on to demonstrations on how to setup the cameras and tripods, work the mics, and how to conduct an interview.

Tuesday the 17th of March we did a little review of the orientation that we went over on Monday regarding how to work the equipment. We worked with the youth to develop interview questions around their project of the Pan Am games, and completed off site filming to get interviews of the different opinions people have about the Pan Am games. The youths of the program setup the equipment and chose filming locations around the Ryerson campus, and were very engaged and enthusiastic about the process. They worked past their fears and each participated equally, taking turns on the camera, doing the interviewing and engaging the public to partake in our interviews. In the end we interviewed 8 people about the Pan Am games and had fun at the same time.

Wednesday the 18th of March we got to watch the footage the youth created from the day before when they went out and did street interviews with people about the Pan Am games. The youth seemed to really enjoy watching themselves in the videos they created. We went over possible ways they could improve their shots and interview skills using their footage as an example. We discussed social justice topics for two different shows that youth need to produce in order to get them thinking about what social justice topics affect them or other topcis that they are interested in. We went into the TV studio to practice on the studio cameras, and also directing and hosting a show. All the youth were very engaged and excited to work in the studio.
