Victoria Grdina – Audio Slideshow Pitch

Your Name:  Victoria Grdina

Your story format for this assignment:

____ Text (2 photos and/or graphics)


_X_ Audio slideshow

Your pitch (in one short paragraph):

Michelle O’Donnell is an 18-year-old Lincoln girl with a promising modeling career. She has modeled for several designers and companies in Omaha and Lincoln, and recently closed the show at Omaha Fashion Week for designer Daniel Munoz while fighting a bad case of mono. If she isn’t chosen to be in the next cycle of America’s Next Top Model, she plans to study fashion and journalism at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln next year. This is just a profile focusing on the life of a Nebraska girl with New York style and her life as both a professional model and an 18-year-old kid.

Explain why this story is best told using this format.

Michelle is obviously very photogenic and I thought shots of her at Omaha Fashion Week would be very cool. A few shots of her in a normal setting would also make a nice contrast, and since we so rarely get to hear the voices of the models we see in photos, I thought it would be cool to hear her talk while showcasing her photos.

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.

Michelle O’Donnell – obviously she’ll be my main source. I plan to ask her for names of family members, friends, an agent, or people she’s modeled for to talk to for interviews as well. Possibilities include:

Wyn Wiley – friend and also aspiring photographer who has done a few shoots with her.

Daniel Munoz – designer she modeled for at Omaha Fashion Week.

Kayla Kohl – close friend.
