Project pitch: What is required?

The project pitch document is a printed document you will hand in during class, after everyone presents his or her pitch briefly. The document must clearly state what you intend to produce for your project.

The information should be specific in terms of:

  1. The subject or topic of the story (including location, background, names of people to be interviewed)
  2. The number of items you will produce (example: “Four audio interviews accompanied by portrait photos of those four people, a map showing each of the locations mentioned in the interviews, a short text introduction to the story, and a graph showing the increase of pollutants from 2001 to 2012”)

Pitch (document) for Audio 2

Your “Audio 2″ will be an interview with an international student at UF.

The interview must NOT be conducted until AFTER you have made your pitch, orally, in class, on Sept. 10.

COME TO CLASS (Sept. 10) PREPARED TO MAKE YOUR PITCH.

You cannot conduct the interview until after your pitch has been approved.

The pitch assignment includes both a printed document and a presentation by you in class. “Presentation” is a little exaggerated. What it really is, is a pitch — to the instructor and your fellow students. (Covered in Kern, Chapter 12. READ IT.) If your pitch fails, you will have to re-do it within 24 hours. If your pitch fails miserably, you will have to find a different interview subject AND write a new pitch.

IMPORTANT: Before you identify your intended interview subject, COMPLETE the Blog Post 3 assignment. It will help you think about STORIES. Read more of this post
