Blue Raider Extra Point is shot on location at Party Fowl in downtown Murfreesboro. This is a large production shoot requiring many helping hands. The team of students get field experience as Directors, Technical Directors, Field Producers, Videographers, Gaffers, Grips, and Production Assistants. The student field crew gets the unique opportunity to use state of the art technology. Every production is recorded using the School of Journalism and Strategic Media's Fly-Pack. (Mobile Production Switcher) On occasion we'll even break out the robotic cameras fully operated by remote control.
Party Fowl, restaurant is our gracious host. We are not compensated in any manner by this establishment. They simply allow us the opportunity to shoot there among sports fans and the smell of great Nashville hot chicken.
Blue Raider Extra Point welcome's all students interested in joining the team. Contact a Middle Tennessee News manager if you wish to participate either as a volunteer or even earn Practicum hours.
