Peacock Play

Peacock Play is an online platform that produces video journalism and infotainment, including news, interviews, and live coverage of campus events. Peacock Play is an essential visual component to the effectiveness and relevance of Peacock Plume, giving readers a look into the AUP world - on campus, in Paris, and beyond. Reporters represent a diversity of international backgrounds and worldviews, and report in English to the AUP and Parisian communities.

As part of Peacock Play, students will learn the basics of broadcast journalism and video production and gain real world, hands-on experience in a professional setting. Interested students should sign up for: 

CM1852 Video Journalism Practicum

This hands-on workshop trains students in video journalism in a real-time newsroom and production studio setting. Students will gain skills working with video production equipment and editing tools including Final Cut Pro. Students will contribute video journalism pieces to “PTV”, the video platform linked to the student media website where their video work contributes to the content mix of news pieces, video work, and magazine stories. Students will produce short video stories, narratives and interviews for the site. They will edit video pieces, post on YouTube, and use social media to promote their stories. The course will prepare students for entry-level positions in video journalism and for more advanced AUP courses in video and broadcast journalism. Note: Up to 8 credits for Journalism Practica can be applied toward the degree. May be taken twice for credit.
