Voter Registration

This is the first package I got to be the only reporter to go out on! I went out with a photographer named Alan and I got to interview several people for his pkg that aired that day.

Meanwhile I used this footage to teach myself the Grassvalley Aurora nonlinear editing system... I spent a lot of time on it & I tried out editing together my first nat sound package because I didn't know how to use the audio tacking booth yet.

To this day, this is one of my favorite pieces I've gotten to report on because the main woman I interviewed is such a character & she drives the whole story! My favorite line is the last one: "I'm out here... Stephanie is out here!" Hope you all registered to vote!

Belly Flop PKG

This is a package I scripted, voiced, and edited together by myself during my summer internship at KMGH Denver ABC.

The photographer who shot this footage edited a different version of this together into a one-minute nat sound PKG that aired on the station that day.

I worked on putting mine together whenever I had spare time at the station over the next few weeks. Although it did not air on KMGH, I'm posting it here and on my own resume blog so it is indeed "published" and I'm proud of the work I did on it.

Hope you like it! I'd appreciate any feedback you have for me.
