For our news package show we first decided to put together a short video about a Paralympic hopeful from the Manchester College called Emily Rawlins. After a few failed attempts to get in touch with her and get her to ring us back we decided to change our story to someone/something that we would be able to get in touch with and interview. When we first decided to the news package about Emily I had a feeling that we would have trouble getting in touch with her because she wasn’t in the same campus as us, which is also the reason why we didn’t do a news piece about the principle of the college.
Our new idea is to make a news package about the work being done between the music, and media students at the Manchester College. I think it is a good idea because it would help people understand a little bit about how it works when an artist is performing and being filmed. E.g. people may wonder how shows like X-Factor and Britain’s Got Talent work. Although this may not be on a scale as large as those shows it gives the audience a little taste of what its like. Our target audience will me males and females between the age of 16 and 25 because I believe this is the age range of people that would be interested in how it all works.
