I worked with primary school children supported by Eileen Doyle from Birmingham City Council’s Housing Education Initiative (HEI) to research, script and rehearse their own news programmes in Lozells, Birmingham.
The programmes included pupils attending media training workshops to learn all about the process involved to produce a news programme.
The workshop sessions provide an introduction to the concept of a news team and enable the participants to learn basic script writing, camera, presenting and production skills as well as planning and recording the episodes.
I worked with pupils to produce all the motion graphics, music and video content used in the video’s to keep the branding and user experience as rich as possible.
The BBC Learning Zone also filmed Lozells News to feature on the BBC Learning Zone.
