New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - January 19, 2003, New Braunfels, Texas
Aaron Perez mans the camera as Laura MacDougald interviews Jennifer Flores. The three are students in Laura Fleming's journalism class at Canyon High School. In addition to producing video projects that are shown around campus, they also
help run a low-power radio station. KOOG, at the school.
“The signal can be picked up in the parking lot.”
Perez said KOOG-97 plans more programming.
“We’re in the works of getting together a morning show; it’s more of a debate about different concerns because I know’ I have concerns about the war and the draft. I’m determined to be a news anchor on television, but if that doesn’t work out, news radio is fine. I get a lot of good comments on my voice.”
On the video side, students shoot anything from simple video profiles to news feature packages.
“Right now, I’m starting them on their own documentaries,” Fleming said.
‘They also do stuff in the community, like sports-ban-quet videos, and they filmed the debutante ball. For some of them, they pick it up later in college as a career path."
In the background, students talked away, but it was like being in a TV studio. Work was being discussed.
“We’re brainstorming," said Lisa Ellis, 17. “We’re thinking of doing a documentary on local bands — Christian bands.”
“What goes into a band behind the scenes,” her video partner, Jake Rutherford, 16, said.
“We’re doing a documentary about making a clay-mation video — buying the clay, shaping it, and shooting it,” said Jesse Ladshaw, 16. “We’re gonna have friends participate. We want to show all the frustrations you go through."
Schonoff and his partner, Rob Ladshaw, 17, have already made a claymation video titled “Santa vs. the Gingerbread Man,” a combination Rudolph-The-Red-Nosed Reindeer dr.Bill-stvle video. It took seven hours to make.
“You have to make sure your fingers stay out of the camera; you have to atop the
figure and film him each time when he moves. It takes patience,” said Schonoff. “For Christmas, we’re developing concepts and subplots. We’ve had a lot of fun, but we may to bleep some things out."
“No serious bleeps. No serious Jerry Springer bleeps,” Fleming said.
“But we want to be realistic,” Ladshaw, said, laughing.
“A lot of the best stuff we do here, they just discuss it and it comes up,” said Fleming. “It’s a great group, really a good group."
And with another group across town at New Braunfels High School, advanced broadcasting teacher Della Stevens has her 40 students recording video newscasts. Those newscasts update stu
dents on school, New Braunfels and national news.
Once recorded in the newly-renovated classroom, the broadcasts are aired weekly over the “Unicorn Broadcasting Network" in the cafeteria during lunches. That way, students can see and hear the announcements.
The next series of stories will be about registration, Stevens said.
Stevens said she likes her job.
“I just really enjoy the creative aspect of it, especially editing videos. Its really a lot of fun. Theres a huge learning curve in it and I really enjoy it.”
“They're great. The kids we attract are creative, and they’re independent.”
