Welcome to Wave TV at Paremata School. This is the 6th year for Wave TV and I think we are getting very proficient at telling our stories in this way. Each episode of Wave TV contains three stories made by students, teachers and teacher aids across the school.
The episodes this year have been anchored by Year 8 and Year 7 students. Once the students have looked at the stories in their episode they write a script that connects the three stories. Sometimes they might decide on a theme for the episode that ties the stories together. Each episode has an introduction and an outro with credits for the people involved in creating that episode.
When the anchors are ready to film they and the camera person and director go to the Wave TV studio and film in front of the green-screen. Then all four crew edit the episode by choosing images or clips to sit behind the anchors. They add music, transitions, titles and sound effects where required. The crew crop shots where needed and try to level out the sound across the different sequences. The editors' job is to make the episode look as smooth and well put together as possible. Sometimes anchors add the occasional blooper to help the audience understand that anchoring is much harder than it looks. However, we have more and more one-take-wonders and fewer accidental bloopers as time goes on.
We hope you enjoy watching our episodes!

The anchors for each episode choose logos while they edit and it's great to have many to choose from. They'll try to use different ones for each episode. Please email me any Wave TV logos you've made (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I'll pop them into this slideshow and into episodes of Wave TV. Thanks! Caroline
