Humber Connected: The Daily Byte
(Originally broadcast March 7, 2011)
Today's House Blogger was Philip Rosario
Monday’s Studio class began with the Sheldon Rodrigues production that was directed by Brent Huckfield. As Professor Karen Young posted up the Studio Production sheets on the windows, students quickly hawked to see their individual roles. As second nature, everyone moves to his or her position except for the first time blogger.
Seen fashionably late, was Sean Morrison. Apparently Sean was saving a child from a burning building, and also had to save two kittens from a broken tree hanging from a cliff! To reward himself for being such a hero, he stopped at a store to grab a sandwich. “ I would have been here on time if it wasn’t for the sandwich”, replied Sean.
The Humber Connected show was called The Daily Byte. The meeting with Sheldon and Brent uplifted everyone’s spirits, and prepared everyone for the show. Both Sheldon and Brent’s confidence emanated off and gave the crew a sense of ease.
With Sheldon’s introduction created from program After Effects and the various camera shots, it appears it has raised the bar for future producers and directs in our class.
The Run-through starts off with Devin Goddard making a beat with his hands then vocally singing a song. Covering the song ‘Howling for You’, by the Black Keys. Beside him was co-host Kayla Smith. Early friendship from previous classrooms has created great chemistry between the two hosts.
As usual Robert Salvador begins to practice his lines in front of the green screen, mimicking Celebrity/Politician Arnold Schwarzenegger’s voice to break the tension in the room.
Professors Karen and Judy are always around helping students be familiarized and comfortable with their roles.
Other than a few instances with the wireless microphone’s battery dying and VTR operations in final recording, the show recovered and eventually went smoothly.
