SPRINGDALE — Travis Sherman demonstrated proper ways to visually frame a television interview during his “Composition 101” lesson in a live broadcast on YouTube.
Students could watch as the television production teacher at Har-Ber High School spoke over videos he’d filmed of himself pretending to be interviewed. Each showed him from a different angle.
“This is way too much headroom,” he said about one where his head and shoulders barely made it into the picture. “It gives the opportunity for people to look around the frame and not what you’re trying to make them focus on.”
Sherman’s broadcasts from his home, which he does three times per week, have replaced in-person instruction since schools closed statewide last month because of the covid-19 pandemic.
