    • Schedule Review Present next assignment Lecture Ch 8-9 Narration discussion/Exercise
    • Quiz List three production positions and explain what they do. How does covering a news story differ from production a commercial? A video script has a left/right format. What information goes on each column? What cable is needed to connect a tape deck to a computer? What is the name for the beginning and end of an edit point.
    • Chapter 8 Live programming – Airs as it is happening. Sporting events, news, some entertainment shows (American Idol finale). Live on tape – Event is taped as the live action occurs. Talk shows, most award shows, cooking shows. Illusion of real time – Sequence of shots that are edited into one seamless action. Ellipsis of time – Time sequence is broken
    • Time (con’t) Defying time – Story breaks the real time relationship (documentaries, slow or fast motion effects, movies like Pulp Fiction, Momento)
    • Chapter 9 – Linear Structure Linear structure – Arranging the edits so that the final story unfolds in a straight line through time. Sequence units of media (audio, photos, video) Key Questions Are you building meaning in a logical way? Do the movements and action and color flow seamlessly? Which unit is revealed first, second, last? How are the units paced? Is there a rhythm?
    • Structure Structure begins in preproduction Style approaches: Continuity – Linear, logicalcchronological Montage – A group of shots that give general meaning Verbally driven – Narrator or soundbites
    • Narrating Your voice is a powerful tool Your tone, voice quality, and pacing will give meaning to your story. Volume How load/soft Pace: How slow/fast Pronunciation: Saying the words correctly Inflection: Emphasizing the right words
