Cameras and flashes were going off from every angle. Cell phones and DSLRs were held in the air documenting stretchy pizza strands and raised glasses. The multimedia journalism class took a field trip to cover the English Department Pizza Party, Oct. 30, at DiMaggio’s Pizza. They spread the news via Social Media, audio interviews, photo slideshows, and Audio Soundslides. Check out their work here. Thanks to the English Department for hosting a fun event, and a learning opportunity for the Multimedia Journalism class.
Deadline night – when editorial decisions are debated, stories edited, photos cropped, pages designed, coffee consumed, conversations bantered back and forth, and the Eagle’s Eye staff produces its bi-weekly newspaper.
Last Monday, the Eagle’s Eye editors opened their doors and invited other journalism students to view the process of putting a paper together. Reporters from the Journalism Workshop class attended, as well as students in the Introduction to Journalism class and students who are just interested in a journalism major.
After supplying their visitors with pizza and soda purchased by the Eagle’s Eye Club, which was hosting the event, the editors started working on the paper and explaining what they do.
