Thesis Project

Elena Schneider, Medill School of Journalism ’13

Violence, drama, stereotypes — these are just a few of the topics the Media Teens students will be exploring in their final project of the year. This week, the students brainstormed ideas for their issue-based video in pairs. They planned to spend the following week conducting interviews and collecting b-roll. For example, Tiara and Tatyana wanted to talk to their friends about why they fight? They planned to interview both friends and teachers to get their perspective on why violence is so prevalent. All the students were enthusiastic about laying out their video on “story-boards” so they could more easily plan their video. These videos will be presented at the students’ graduation in May.
