Leslie Wilcox (how many of you remember Bob Seavy?) said you can actually hear a smile.
The president and CEO of PBS Hawaii was joined by Nikki Miyamoto, an editor with Hiki No, in talking to about 40 digital media students from Kapaa, CKMS, and Waimea on the creation of Hiki No stories (the CKMS TV students had one aired Thursday during the Ben Franklin Fire Service Awards at the Kauai Community College Performing Arts Center).
Jenny Fujita made it all the way from the East Coast, being joined by Joy Koerte, but had to cut short for a meeting, and Marissa Sandblom, a PBS board member from Kauai, also got to sit in the program which centered around increasing the effectiveness of the students’ voiceover delivery.
Marissa said the goal of the workshops is to generate ideas and techniques which the students can use on future Hiki No stories and projects.
