“T.V. is such a big part of kids’ lives nowadays that I wanted to show them what goes on behind the camera, instead of in front of the camera,” says Mr. Beaulieu, 8th grade social studies and Media Tech teacher.
At Pioneer Middle School, morning announcements are recorded by the Media Tech class. Soon we will get more school news from “News 4 U”.
What is “News 4 U”?
News 4 U is a video broadcast that is taught by Mr. Beaulieu and Mrs. Clayton, 8th grade teachers.
Topics include school news, upcoming activities, trends and current events.
“It’s really fun and exciting,” says Sydney Davenport, who is currently on the News 4 U crew. Karly Tinsley, another crewmember adds, “It’s a fun show that informs and entertains at the same time.”
Since moving to the new Pioneer Middle School, the production equipment has been upgraded from one camera and one computer to a green screen, microphones and seven H.D. video cameras.
News 4 U is a change from the usual school announcements because as Karly says, “The News Crew can be a little more silly than serious.”
News 4 U was created in 2002 by Mr. Beaulieu. It hasn’t won any Oscars, but if we were in charge we would give it one.
