SFNS Fall 2017 Rundown…

SFNS

Here are the deadlines, examples, links and all types of assorted stuff to make your lives easier for this semester:

Production: Mondays 5 – 6 pm ; 7 pm to completion 
News Meetings: 
Mondays 6 pm – 7 pm

General Expectations: 

  • Text reporters are expected to bring to each meeting a fully-fleshed out story idea (between 500-700 words) that can be turned around in one week.
  • Video reporters, working in teams of two, are expected to bring to each meeting a fully-fleshed out story idea (at least 30 seconds, and no longer than two minutes) that can be turned around in one week.
  • Audio reporters are expected to bring to each meeting a fully-fleshed out story idea (between 30 sec – 2 minutes) that can be turned around in one week.
  • Still photographers are expected to bring to each meeting a fully-fleshed out idea for a photo essay (between 10-20 images) that can be turned around in one week.

A fleshed-out idea means a timely, interesting piece that you know you can do. This means doing some initial reporting to make sure you can talk to your sources, set up photo assignments and the like. It is not: “I heard something might be going on in Wynwood Saturday.”

Story-specific requirements: 

  • All pieces must have at least two elements, and one must be text. For video/audio pieces and photo galleries, this is a 150-200 word intro. For text stories, this means all articles need either a photo or a video accompaniment. If the photo/videographers are unavailable, you need to provide the art yourself. 
  • You are responsible for promoting your work on your personal social media sites, linking back to the SFNS ones. If you have not liked our pages, do that now. @SFNS_News • Instagram• Facebook
