Broadcast journalist, educator, activist
I'm dedicated to reporting, broadcasting and spear-heading into short documentaries. Since January 4, 2016 till present, my duty as a Broadcast Intern includes television production of live and current legislative bill meetings of the 52nd Legislature – 2nd Session, research of archived recordings and profiles of members of the House of Reps and Senate, writing of feature/human interest stories, researching of proposed government bills, research of the bill sponsors, and the recording of Democratic Caucus meetings, editing with Adobe Premier, data entry of bills voted on/struck out and deliberated upon during the Republican/Democratic Senate and House Committee Hearings, and filing them electronically while saving them as .png files. The editing or trimming of legislative broadcasts on Granicus equipment includes the process of uploading docs to the main Granicus server by previewing the recorded meeting, editing, trimming, saving the files/agenda items on each meeting committee from start to finish, and finally making the file public. Camera work includes set up to troubleshoot the cameras, preview and test-recording by using a joystick which zooms into the Senate seatings, use of the Podium Wide-Shot to tilt, zoom, focus, pan to maintain head rooms to Chairpersons/Vice/members of the Senate with a preview of the VDesk.
My position involves television production of several human interest stories on an approved topic with an assigned Cannon 100 C and DJI Osmo attachable to a mobile phone setting up Wide shot, Medium shot, and Close ups. One of my feature stories with a historical angle was the Code Talker Monument located at the Wesley Bolin Plaza in front of the House of Representatives and the Senate at the State Capitol building of Phoenix, Arizona.
I go “Live” on the router enabling audio/video input transition on a Granicus monitor after loading up the meeting, etc etc.
