FIREcast episodes will be filmed on Thursdays: Please choose at least 2 dates that are open for potential filming times. Everything must be filmed during a single visit.


Introduction:

What is the main focus of the episode? Is it an innovation in the classroom? Or is in the entire school? Is there a time frame associated with the project/innovation?


Conversation Segment

Who will host the episode?

The host will introduce the school and also conclude the show. The host will also ask the questions to the guests who appear in this section. If a host can't be found we will make accommodations.

Guest List

This should feature at least two talkative people.

Anybody knowledgeable about the project should be listed below. Even if they are on the list they may not make into a conversation.

Base of Operations

Where will the conversations take place? Preferably, where it won't be interrupted. The guest and host will need to be seated at a table. We can bring a tablecloth if needed.


Sample Questions:

Each conversation will last around 7 minutes; questions should be more conversational rather than yes/no. The following questions you provide will help shape how the conversation the host and guests will have. Questions can be changed if needed upon approval of the application.


                               Documentary Segment 

This is a documentary/news package type of segment. Who would you like to feature in a story? Ideally, this will focus on a project in process or one that has already been completed.

  • Who are we interviewing?

  • What did they make/create/write/experience?

  • What footage do we need to provide full coverage of the story?

  • Is footage/photos going to be provided?

Additional info:

Any closing remarks, facts or information the host should mention?
