Video editing class presents Zebra TV
Claremore Highschool’s video editing class is in its second year of broadcasting Zebra TV. The class has made an impact for students interested in video producing and editing.
“This year we have created a new website channel where students broadcast different Claremore sporting events live online,” said Jeff Faulconer, video editing teacher.
All of the football games this fall will be available through the website. Certain softball and volleyball games will be available as well.
“We schedule as we go,” he said. “Eventually we want to have a crew for each sport for the fall and spring.”
As for reporting, two RSU students handle the live play-by-play commentating for the sporting events.
Whether it is editing, producing, filming, or laying out web design, the students are staying busy.
“Every two weeks we switch positions,” said Claremore senior Morgan Bible.
Bible along with Janay Hensley, senior, will be anchoring the morning news the next couple of weeks.
The news footage is available for viewing on the academic channel of the claremorezebras.tv website.
“This is a fun and creative class,” said Hensley.
She said there is some pressure of knowing you are on camera but that’s what makes it fun.
Chief Editor and producer Thomas Walkingstick, senior, is in charge of controlling the camera for the taping of Z News and sporting events, as well as setting up equipment.
“I enjoy working on Z TV,” said Walkingstick. “It has been a great experience and I have been able to get to know a lot of the students.”
Walkingstick said he can see himself working more in video editing and producing after he graduates.
Zebra TV is a GameView TV production and is the official broadcast center for all Claremore Highschool sporting and special events .
