    Student journalist 1st Academy Awards

    We were very lucky to have student journalist Joell Posey, a graduate student with studies in Mass Communications and Journalism at California State University Northridge with us during the set up at the 86th Academy Awards. Joell has never been to the Oscars in any manner shape or form. Getting a setup credential has her all wound up as you can see by her trying to maintain a professional demeanor while standing where all the Oscar nominees will be walking in a few days.

    What we did was give Joell a camera and let her take pics through the eyes of a newbie at the Oscars and since she’s a graduate student of journalism she is a serious journalist in as much as she shows with her pursuit in a graduate degree.

    We are expecting to see pics taken of this and setup of other Oscar related events from a unique perspective of a newbie attending these events, which should be exciting to us as it’s the 65th Oscars show for Oldecam and 6th or 7th for Notaspringchick. The college student perspective is more representative of those watching the Oscars than someone covering it for years. A person that has been to the awards for years compares it to previous years, while a person covering it for the first time sees it in a perspective they can see only once, the first time.
