The Rule of Thirds is an excellent guide to follow when framing a shot. With this rule, you divide the frame of a shot into thirds, using imaginary lines - two horizontal and two vertical - breaking the frame up into nine boxes. The lines then intersect at four points. It looks like a tic-tac-toe board. To create a visually pleasing composition, you should place your shot's primary focus at one of the intersecting points. 💡⁣

The amount of "room" needed for each shot will change depending on how you frame your subject. But following standard practices, like the Rule of Third, and ensuring there is "room" will create a visually pleasing shot. 🎞⁣

Broadcast news reporting carries an ethical responsibility to deliver impartial news that balances multiple perspectives and accurate information. To achieve a balance within a news package, a reporter must understand the difference between FACT or OPINION based content. 🎙⁣

🎧 The reporter's track is audio-only, intended to play under the b-roll footage. Typically, the b-roll footage shown on-screen closely matches what the reporter is saying at that time, enhancing the overall story for the viewer. The reporter's goal with this audio track is to help advance the story by setting up the sound bites, as well as clarifying and summarizing relevant information.

From the very start of your news package, you want to hook your viewers! Two essential elements for beginning a story are the open and the lead.

🔹 The OPEN is the first visual shot of the news package that hooks the viewer. Reporters often use an establishing shot for the open, giving the viewers information on where the story occurs.

🔹 The LEAD is the first line of audio in the news story. A reporter’s track, sound bite, or nat sound are all possible types of audio tracks to use as a lead.

In a news package, you will often see a shot of the reporter on-camera, speaking directly to the viewer. A reporter-led shot is called a Standup, and they help fill in information gaps within the story. The reporter sticks to the story's facts during a standup and avoids giving personal opinions.

EditMentor and Editing Entrepreneurship by Scott Simmons - ProVideo Coalition

Thank you for the review / podcast Scott Simmons and ProVideo Coalition. " Online video editor training is a dime-a-dozen these days. Everybody and their mom seem to be offering a course and there are a thousand YouTube videos that threaten to teach you to be a professional editor in 15 minutes... That’s what makes the editor training from EditMentor different and where it stands to shine above a crowded field in today’s video-centric world."https://loom.ly/EaGgNSY

The reporter watches the recorded interview back during the editing stage. They then select smaller portions of the subject's answers that best fit the story. The edited portion of the interview, used within the news package, is called a Sound Bite.

While on location, production will often record natural sound, called NAT Sound for short. 🎙

Your camera’s microphone will record a lot of the natural sound of a location when shooting footage. However, it is beneficial to take the time to focus solely on the sound and record several minutes of NAT Sound at each new location, preferably with a separate audio recording device and high-end microphone. This will give you extra sound to work with during the edit.

Showing only the reporter or people talking to the camera would be boring! To enhance a news package, B-ROLL is used to engage the viewers. B-roll is additional footage that plays over the top of the reporter’s audio track or interview sound bites. This footage should visually and truthfully clarify and expand on the story. ⁣

An Out Cue happens at the very end of a news package and includes the news stations' call letters and the reporter's name.

The Out Cue helps alert the control room crew and news anchor that the news package is ending. This gives everyone a heads up that they are moving on to the next part of the news broadcast.
