At #KEMPASJW17 this week, advisers Don Goble and Jonathan Roger are teaching a Digital/Social Media Journalism class in which their Kampers are required to produce and edit video content.
In order to get more involved in Kamp classes on Monday, Rodger and Goble had me produce and edit a welcome video for Kampers from the interns.
Never having taken a videography (or even photojournalism) class before, the task seemed small yet confusing for me. However, using the suggested Adobe Spark app, the assignment was made simple.
Using the app, I could cut and edit the video, add music and input text. It gave insight into what Kampers in the Roger/Goble class are up to this week.
Although I was only part of the class for about five minutes, some Kampers spend their entire days here editing videos like I did, including Kamper Mya Pfeifer.
“We’ve been learning how to make videos that are better quality, and editing them so that you can hear people talking over the sound of the music,” Pfeifer said. “I’ve never taken a journalism class, so this is the first thing I’m getting into ever.”
Pfeifer has not only enjoyed her class and learning the new skills she’s adapting to, but also the nightly planned activities as well: specifically, the Kempa Kup games.
“I really liked trivia,” Pfeifer said. “I liked dancing every time there was the 30 seconds [of music].”
