As a senior communication major enrolled in the department's Studio TV Production course, I gained access to one of Boston College's best kept secrets: its television studio! I used this opportunity to create and launch The Wrap, a parody news show in the same vein as SNL's "Weekend Update."
A few weeks into the TV course, I began teaching my fellow New England Classic staff members how to operate the studio equipment. Some of our underclassmen then got to work on writing jokes, while I dealt with the big-picture aspects of producing a recurring video series – a first for the Classic.
Making this series was an extremely collaborative and oftentimes challenging process. We were operating on a non-existent budget with extremely limited studio time, but somehow we made it work!
I had an active role in the development, filming, and post-production for each of the six episodes in the series. While my staff and I ultimately decided to put the show on hold, I'm extremely proud of these episodes that my friends and I made – just because we could!
