The Avalon Public School Media Team was formed in 2018. Students in Year 5 had to submit a video they had made to be eligible to join.
The Media Team produce our APS TV News. There are two editions broadcast each term. There are three main stories in our new bulletins: 1. Coverage of important events at the school 2. Issues the students feel strongly about 3. What the students are learning in class and how they are learning it.
Each group in the team has a script writer, a presenter, a camera operator and a video editor.
The school recently purchased a lapel (or lavalier) mic and a LED TV light that was dimmable and included diffusers and colour-correction gels. With professional equipment such as this we are able produce broadcasts with exceptionally-high production values.
Many of our news presentions are filmed and edited with iMovie on the iPad, although the final edit for broadcast is done in Adobe Premiere.
The media team is trained and co-ordinated by Mr Rutherford.
