Broadcast Students Feature the Maker Studio in Class Project

Three students from the Bachelor of Communication—Broadcast Media Studies program showcased the Maker Studio space for a class project that had them plan, shoot, and edit a short video. The one minute feature illustrates how to book an appointment in the studio and the equipment students, faculty and general community members are able to access.

Joshua Barnett along with classmates Alyssa Plausteiner and Makayla Berze-Rai are the creators of this project, which was assigned to them through their COMM 1405 – Writing for Digital Video course.

Barnett says groups were assigned in February and the subject of the video came down to a small piece of paper they selected from a hat. The biggest challenge was learning to operate the professional cameras they were given access to, Barnett adds, but their effort definitely feels worthwhile now that they can watch the finished piece.

We are also very pleased with the end result and applaud the hard work that went into this project. Take a look and see if you spot equipment you may want to come and try out. You can drop in the Maker Studio Monday-Friday 10am-2pm or schedule an appointment.
