This is my first post as a recent graduate of the Converged Communications Bachelor’s Degree program at Florida State College at Jacksonville! My last semester was spent immersed in the broadcasting concentration and I loved every minute of it. I am energized and excited to apply my relevant knowledge and experience to the next chapter of my life.
When thinking back over the past two years, I am frankly astonished at the amount of ground this program covered. We addressed numerous emerging technologies that sharpened my skills in the digital media realm.
In addition to the digital communications arm of the program, my broadcasting concentration gave me the opportunity to script, shoot and edit digital video. The FSCJ Deerwood Campus provided the opportunity to work in a professional, live TV studio environment.
My studio production responsibilities ranged from one week to the next and included; writer, director, producer, camera operator, sound tech, teleprompter operator, technical director and on-air talent. My theater background proved to be very useful both in the live studio environment and remotely, when I shot footage for TV news packages.
This is a package I shot for my TV news class. The Color Me Rad race was a blast. They shot colored powder all over the runners…and our camera!?
