Rich Schneider’s Pitch

Your Name: Rich Schneider
Your story format for this assignment:

_____ Text (2 photos and/or graphics)

__xx___ Video

_____ Audio slideshow

Your pitch (in one short paragraph): On Tuesday, September 28, the new Whittier Research Center will have an open house for the public to see the new renovations that were made to the old Junior High School.  The former junior high is now home to several University research teams as well as the University Children’s Center.

Explain why this story is best told using this format.

I believe that video is the best way to show not only the renovations that were made to the building, but also the crowd that shows up for the open house and excerpts from speeches by Chancellor Harvey Perlman, Mayor Chris Beutler, Vice Chancellor Prem Paul, and former Whittier Principal Dave Meyers.

How will you tell this story visually? Please be specific.

I will tell this story by using old photos of the center before the renovations and b-roll of the center after the renovations.  I want to include pans of the attendees and show the speakers who speak.

List the names and titles of the sources (both those you have talked with already and those you plan to talk to) and describe what role they will play in the story.

My sources will include interviews with people who attend the open house and the people who will be using the new center.  I plan to talk to anyone involved in the renovation.
