Fall Sports Coverage
By: CJ McNeil
With the beginning of Fall the leaves turn to a myriad of colors and BHS opens its doors for the 2012-13 School year. This means it is also the beginning of the Fall School Sports season. There are many sports in need of coverage this Fall.
The list includes
Soccer, both Boys & Girls
Swimming, Just Girls
When one of Burlington's athletes makes one of those memorable plays You can help make sure the rest of Burlington gets to see it. More than once if they want. Its Fun, its easy, and it is up to You.
"But I don't have the time or skill to undertake such an endeavor, everything I take video of ends up looking like a blurry Picasso painting rolling down a hill" You say. Have no fear! Basic coverage is only 3 steps away.
1. Come to BCAT (our studios are at the back of BHS) and take our Camcorder class. Its about an hour long, a mere 3600 seconds. You will learn how to use a tripod and what type of shots to get at your sporting event.
2. Go to the Sporting event and video it.
3. Return the equipment and footage to the station.
We will add the beginng and end to you footage and put it on air on the edution channel Comcast 22, RCN 13, Verizon 40
