MOTV featured on Classroom Close-up
"Please turn on Channel 14 for this morning's announcements, produced by Marauder Madness." Perhaps you have heard Mr. Stansberry reiterate this message every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Perhaps you have watched the Marauder Madness morning show produced by Mount Olive TV students. If so, you have witnessed a show that seamlessly moves from opening scripted banter to segments and weather reports. The Marauder Madness show is broadcast on the high school's closed circuit system on Channel 14. To the community Marauder Madness is broadcast on Cablevision Channel 21 and FiOS Channel 32.
In addition to watching the final few episodes of Marauder Madness for the 2014-2015 school year, for a limited time you can also see a special behind-the-scenes look at MOTV featured on Classroom Close-up, NJ. Sponsored by NJEA and NJTV, the Classroom Close-up show features innovative programs from schools throughout New Jersey.
The program interviews students as well as MOTV advisor and teacher, Mr. Chris Praml, who discusses the MOTV program and the dedication of his students. Speaking of the MOTV program and students, Mr. Praml said on the show, "It's really a program that teaches kids how to use all the equipment, how to work in the tv and film industry, but also the bigger concepts of how to be responsible, how to manage their time, how to manage their stress, how to work as a crew."
In addition to showing how the MOTV equipment works and how the studio is arranged, the program also highlights the new drone that MOTV recently acquired. The program used some of the student-recorded footage captured via drone, displaying spectacular overhead views of the high school and grounds.
To close out the MOTV segment, Mrs. Vivianne Bolen's "Communication in TV and Social Media" class was featured. The students in the segment are working on a marketing and social media project, in which they learn how to be positive contributors in global cyberspace. Mrs. Bolen's students show how the right type of social media marketing tools can be used to maximize productivity and promote one's brand.
Mount Olive High School's TV program was already featured on Classroom Close-up on May 10th and May 16th and will be featured again on June 7th and June 13th. The show will air at 7:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m., and 7:30 p.m. in the Mount Olive area.
