The Inner Workings of a Newsroom

Prior to considering journalism as my major focus of study, I had very little idea as to how a real news room was operated, or even what one looked like.  Due to this, I get the feeling that most of the general public has very little conception of this picture as well, except for perhaps what they have seen in movies and television shows.  Therefore, I think it would interesting to capture the raw, unscripted action within a newsroom.

Five shots I could get:

  • Informational shot of the entrance or lobby desk
  • Wide shot of the main newsroom
  • Extreme close up of someones hands typing
  • Medium shot of someone working with equipment (cameras, copiers, computers, etc)
  • High-angle shot of employees meeting

Five sounds I could capture:

  • Buzz of newsroom
  • Typing
  • Snapping of photos
  • Discussion of news topics in employees meeting
  • Reporters calling potential sources (introduction)
