My 23 minute program, "For Just Pennies A Day", is part of a new series entitled, "So, Your're Moving to Mount Prospect." My boss, Karen Giet, wanted to start this series as a promotional piece designed to inform residents about their village and the people who run it. The other intern, Lisa Bennett, did a program about the public works department. I did my program about the village tax system and the benefits residents receive for their money. The concept, script and editing is entirely my own. It was subject to Karen's approval, and therefore had to be refined, but I still consider the project mine. I also shot portions of the program. Some of the footage came from stock videotape that the station had, and some we did during the summer. Those who assisted in the camera work are listed at the end of the program. I chose the type styles and programed them into the character generator.
