Students will produce multimedia content leading up to, and during, the 2021 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan. The multimedia stories will include videos, digital content, and social stories. They will focus on athletes with a connection to BYU or to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Additionally, the stories students produce will be published in the Daily Universe and other distribution partners.
During summer term, we will meet for class for several weeks producing preview stories on Olympic athletes for our distribution partners and planning our trip to Japan. Between 23 July and 8 August 2021, we will travel to Tokyo for 10–12 days to cover athletes competing in the games. Students will be expected to produce stories each day or in a timely manner. The content students produce should be added to their professional portfolios.
