博亚体育大四学生萨德·西摩永远不会忘记她第一次参与制作的视频片段出现在全国网络ESPN上,并受到欢迎 体育中心十大 去年3月部分.

在梅贝体育馆举行的美国西南男子篮球锦标赛半决赛中,老鹰队资深后卫布莱森·约翰逊在终场哨声响起时投进了25英尺高的制胜三分. 西摩, a senior media production major from Nassau, 巴哈马群岛, 担任欧扎克学生团队的技术总监和制作人,他们正在向大量观众直播游戏.

“能够帮助捕捉到那个关键的投篮,然后在ESPN上播出,这是非常惊人的,”西摩说. “I felt extremely accomplished and proud in that moment and it’s a moment I’ll never forget.”

苏珊Edens, associate professor of practice of communication and manager of KUOZ 6 HD, 表示,由于新冠肺炎指导方针和政策限制了体育赛事的准入,UO Eagle Sports制作团队在过去一年里蓬勃发展.

“UO老鹰体育是传播研究项目和大学体育系之间动态和协同的专业关系的结果,”Edens说. “As with many successful initiatives, 博亚体育app官方现在所做的事情以及博亚体育app官方所做的事情的规模都源于一个需要解决的问题, 结合员工, 教师, 管理员, 最重要的是, 学生, 愿意做出一些改变,做出一些主要的时间承诺,以达到持续的卓越.”

伊登斯称赞体育信息总监乔什·佩帕斯和体育总监吉米·克拉克使计划和制作过程顺利进行.

“They are invaluable leadership partners in this endeavor,”她说. “他们开辟了一个合作的教育领域,在这里,学生和教师都在专业领域蓬勃发展,并获得了很多乐趣. 整个体育团队让这项工作成为可能,他们欢迎博亚体育app官方,把博亚体育app官方当作体育大家庭的一份子. Students notice that and deeply appreciate it, and so do I.”

During the Spring 2021 Semester, when many of the fall sports were pushed back to the spring, UO鹰体育 livestreamed approximately 60 athletic events over a three-month period. The sporting events ranged from baseball and softball to soccer and swimming. They also produced a series of interview programs called “UO鹰体育 Weekly,” 由媒体制作二班制作,由教练员、教练员和学生运动员组成.

“这显然需要博亚体育app官方的学生团队投入大量的时间和精力,”伊登斯说. “Twenty-plus years of teaching experience has taught me that to have successful productions, the teacher has to work beyond the classroom and meeting space. But the teacher must also k现在 when to stand back and let the 学生 take the wheel. Seeing them do that makes my heart happy. If you put this work into hours, 2021年春季, I would estimate for the student producers, it was around 15 to 20 hours per week when you include the live events, 会议, the preproduction and setups, and the video packages. 学生们必须愿意在他们的有偿工作学习之外每周贡献一些时间,以使该项目脱颖而出.”

被称为学生制作人的核心学生群体是根据他们在媒体制作项目中的地位、兴趣水平和他们以积极和富有成效的方式回应方向的能力来选择的. 他们也被选为他们的能力,领导和指导其他学生服务的生产人员. The current student producers are 西摩, Johnathan Smith and 翡翠 McCourty. Each Tuesday afternoon, 伊登斯和学生制片人与体育官员会面,汇报前一周的情况,并计划下一周的工作. After the Tuesday meeting, 然后,Edens向她的媒体制作I或II班做简报,并分配一周的工作岗位.

体育主任克拉克说,伊登斯和她的学生工人团队提供了宝贵的服务,老鹰体育项目.

“It not only helps our sports information office document the events, but we have parents from Texas, Oklahoma and all over that have the opportunity to watch their kids compete,”克拉克说. “当博亚体育app官方的教练可以告诉他们的学生运动员,甚至是他们的新兵,比赛将被转播,他们的家人可以在任何地方观看比赛,这是一件很棒的事情. 这是老鹰体育运动中非常有价值的一部分,博亚体育app官方非常感谢伊登斯教授和她的学生提供的服务.”

伊登斯说,UO鹰体育让她的学生能够实践他们在课堂上学到的概念. She said 学生 are learning such skills as how to operate professional broadcast cameras, 编辑, 镜头组成, audio, 导演, 面试, lighting and working in a team.

“他们可以在大一的时候就把这些概念付诸实践,然后在传播学专业或辅修专业的媒体生产轨道上继续实践,学习先进的技能和概念,”Edens说. “但博亚体育app官方也欢迎学生不上制作课程,而是一边学一边教.”

在过去的一年里,UO鹰体育举办了两项最大的赛事,分别是3月份的ASC篮球冠军和10月份的ASC越野锦标赛. 超过1,000名观众观看了篮球冠军赛,近500人观看了越野赛, which was broadcast live for the first time in the event’s history.

梅尔文门多萨, a sophomore media production major from Panama, said working the ASC Cross Country Championships was one of his favorite experiences, even though he had to be at the course at 7 a.m. 一个周六.

“We received many praises for our hard work and dedication that day. It was a magical moment,” Mendoza said. “I was so happy to work on something I am passionate about. 与UO鹰体育和KUOZ的合作让我再次坚定了我对媒体制作的热情. 我不能说谎, it’s what I’ve wanted to do since I was a kid and, 现在, thanks to the support of Professor Edens, 萨德, 翡翠, and all the other people in charge of Eagles Production, my dreams are coming true.”

The media production track was added at U of O in 2020 and one of its first graduates, 2020 alumnus Luis Alfaro, was recently hired as a multi-media specialist by the Springdale (Ark.) School District in Northwest Arkansas.

“他在沟通部门的工作经验和在奥大体育信息方面的工作经验帮助他找到了这份工作,”Edens说. “Coincidently, his boss (Trent Jones ’01) is an alumnus of the University of the Ozarks. We believe this concentrated effort will help more 学生 get into graduate school, receive outside recognition and find employment upon graduation.”

西摩 hopes to find similar success when she graduates in the spring of 2022.

萨德 西摩 on computer“Working with UO Eagle Sports has allowed me to hone my production and communication skills, 我已经成长了很多,建立了一个数字作品集,这将有助于我在毕业后追求职业生涯,”西摩说. “我还帮助培训了这个领域的其他人,并担任了大型大学活动的导演和监制等角色.”

伊登斯说,尽管工作时间长、工作努力,但她从学生身上找到了成就感.

“我最大的收获是,当学生们第一次为欧扎克郡的体育赛事现场工作时,他们微笑着,感到自豪,”她说. “They have been making a point to tell me that they had ‘so much fun,”,问, ‘When can we do that again?’”
