Broadcast Journalism students at the New York Film Academy just don’t cover stories, sometimes they get covered in the story. Case in point, two of our evening students, at the Holi (Festival of Colors) Festival in Jersey City recently.
Wenjing Yang and Nyeisha Scott were assigned to shoot a news package about a cultural event. They chose the annual Holi Festival in Jersey City. A celebration by the region’s Indian community of the arrival of Spring, a key component of the festivities involves participants covering anyone and everyone in bright colored powders. By the end of the day, both Wenjing and Nyeisha’s clothing needed a good washing. But they protected the camera!
