Sky Academy

On March 16th 2016 the young grant makers took a trip to the Sky Academy in Livingston and learned about producing a news story for TV. They learned what it takes to actually do a news show, to produce a show you need to be creative, communicate well, solve problems, manage your time and work as a team. They enjoyed creating the script, using editing software and the camera. Today was a fantastic experience and it gave them a glimpse of what you need to create a news story. Have a look at the video clip below.
