So you wanna be famous? (C School)

Jackson has it rough on Radio Row doesn't he?

Let's be honest, who hasn't wondered what it'd be like to see their face plastered on a big screen for the world to appreciate?  Or maybe you think your voice should be carried over the airwaves to caress the drums of a thousand ears?

Students from every branch get their chance in BCC, or Basic Combat Correspondent course.  It may not be Hollywood, but in my humble opinion, it's the most interesting course here.  I've got some Navy buddies in there and they're getting voice lessons, as well as learning radio, tv, and video.  Many will end up at AFN stations around the world.

Here's a project the current class did during their Field Training Exercise.  I'll try to post some more pics showing what they do.

Today, I caught Airman Frazee working on a "stand up" out in the hallway.  Stand ups involve standing in front of the camera, reporting a news item.  She had to set up the video, lighting, and sound herself.  You can see the light just behind the camera.  Here she is attaching a script to read from.  This is about the only time Frazee smiled.  It seemed kind of stressful. :)
