This week I need to talk about the new announcements. I have already said some things about it in a past blog, and now I will say some more things. First I will say what we do. Secondly I will tell you what I have had to do. Then I will tell you what I think of the new announcements.
Everyone who is working that week has to come in at 7:15 in the morning and we have to practice the announcements. The announcers also come in and practice with us. We have all the same jobs but a new one was added, Elmo. The person who does the Elmo uses the computer and goes through the Hana Mai Kai recipients power point during the opening and so we also all have to create new openings.
So far, I have worked the morning announcements every week because I was filling in for someone or doing my own part. The first week, my opening was played and I filled in for the person who did the technical director. I also had to figure out how to run the new opening and how to get the music playing in the background during the power point. I also had to teach the titler what to do. The second week it was the same thing, the only thing different was that I did not work the whole week. The third was my turn to work. I taught them how to do it and then I had to work floor manager.
With all the new things, I think that the announcements are the same as last year. For me though, it wont be the same until everyone knows how to do the new opening. The good thing is that I kind of like doing the announcements. I think it is fun to work them, unless I have one of the more boring jobs.
I think that the announcements are just as fun as last year when it was different. Over all it didn't change much at all for us.I enjoy doing the announcements and wouldn't mind doing it more often. I am running out of time and I still have other important things to do so I will see you later! Bye!
I am in 8th grade in my school's Advanced Media class. I love this class and I have been having lots of fun in it. This past year we went to San Diego, where STN was held, and the year before it was in Orlando. This year it was in Atlanta, Georgia.
