— Energy Breakthrough (@racveb) December 8, 2014
For the past 8 years I’ve been involved with the RACV Energy Breakthrough, an annual school program in which schools and local businesses work together to design and construct a vehicle, a machine or innovation in technology. From year 7 up to year 12 I rode with Padua College, and loved the experience to bits. Saddened when I graduated in 2012, I decided to volunteer to the program which had given me so much joy over the years. For me, the best way I could contribute, would be to join the online media team, as it gave me experience and a chance to practice my journalistic and media skills.
During the 2014 edition of the Breakthrough, I covered all the action in Maryborough, in four daily videos which were shot, edited and uploaded by the end of the day.
With just a camera and microphone in hand, I roamed the grounds of the Breakthrough and interviewed many students, teachers and volunteers involved in order to paint an accurate view of the event for the website and media platforms.
Designed to entertain and inform those familiar with the program, it also acts as an appropriate introduction to the event for audience members who have never heard of the RACV Energy Breakthrough before.
Big thanks to all the bands/musicians which kindly approved the use of their tracks as well as Josh Soupe, Tony Gay and Lachy Gay for the extra footage which proved invaluable.
