This video gives an inside look behind the scenes of the annual University of Kentucky MANRRS Fashion Show. It follows the schedule of the models on the day of the show and gives a brief look into what it takes to put together a successful production.
You get a chance to see the work that goes into walking down a runway. It is not as effortless as most models make it seem.
Broadcast Journalism students do not just learn about television news. An entire semester of their education is dedicated to learning about a different realm of broadcasting: radio. During their radio class, titled Journalism 304, students do large scale research and reporting projects throughout the semester. They research, produce, and write a 30-minute radio show that they have to cultivate an audience for, as well as in-studio guests.
The portion of the class I am showing you is part of their weekly responsibilities. Each week, students have a lab where they produce, write, and report the morning news during three different shows on WRFL, station 88.1. Sounds like normal journalism student responsibilities, but there’s a catch. Lab starts at 6am, and there are three different shows: a 7am, an 8am, and an 8:40am newscast. The professor asks that they switch up the content of each show, and rewrite stories so they sound different and improve throughout the morning. This video takes you into the life of a JOU 304 student on a lab day.
This VR story focuses on a small neighborhood in Coldspring, Texas. This neighborhood where my family resides is surrounded by water: one river and one dam. When Harvey made its way through Texas, the water from the hurricane caused the water levels in the dam to rise high enough to cause the wall in the dam of Lake Livingston to be opened. On one side of the neighborhood, the top of the damn was overflowing with water and on the other side, the water levels in the river were rising at a rapid pace.
In this video, we see the the aftermath of the flooding. Many people’s homes had to be rebuilt, and some even left their homes behind due to the damage. The street is half vacant due to the cost it would be to rebuild and remodel the homes that were damaged. Even though over one year has passed, the effects of Harvey are still felt every day.
