I have a wide range of interests. My list includes reporting, directing, editing, producing and script writing.
"Dream. Not only just dream, but dream big. There is not ONE person that can tell you that you cant be something you put all of your heart and soul into."
I am very ambitious, I have big goals although I am a young adult.
I am absolutely fascinated by the TV industry.
I currently work for KSPR News as a Floor Director and Studio Operator.
My job consists of cutting and editing all the video for each of the newscasts.
On weekdays, I cut and edit video for 3 shows, the 4PM, 6PM and 10PM. On the weekend, I cut and edit video for 2 shows.
Everyday I direct the anchors by following the script during each newscast.
It is truly a one-man band here at KSPR but it is because of this that I know how to do alot, not only just direct or just cut video.
I love to learn, I am the type of person that wants to know how to do EVERYTHING.
This is a complete "news package" in which I cut edited and voiced myself. I had to write a script that reflected the news story and put it together visually. This is a piece you would see airing during a news broadcast. This story was about business' reactions to the smoking ban in Springfield,Mo.
This is my second "news package" I cut all by myself. This package is over the Pit Bull ordinance in Springfield,Mo.
I hosted a TV segment called "Campus Corner" at Drury University as a part of DUTV, Drury's TV station. As host, it was my job to collect both local and campus news, write a script and be able to deliver it on camera by the end of the week. With this position, I worked under deadlines, reported news to the Drury Community and gained alot of script writing experience.

For an assignment, we were to pick an issue or controversy, no matter how harsh it is, and raise awareness about it. I chose human trafficking of women. I was so moved by what I was finding out, I created an interactive website complete with a guestbook to help me track visitors to the site. I also created a facebook group! >>To view the website go to: www.wix.com/aprojectbyashley/smudgedbeauty/ <<
This is a script on ENPS that the 4PM producer wrote for a Missoni SOT-VO. It was my job to cut and edit the audio bite as well as the video and put it together for airing. I follow at the scripts and cut video accordingly.
This is a script on ENPS that the 4PM producer wrote for a tease about Missoni. Teases are short VOs that a visually pleasing that in fact "teases" the viewer into wanting to watch more. I cut the tease VO for this by reading the script written.
A package is a little different to cut and edit from a VO. As you can see here, the script gives a specific out cue. This means when I go to cut this, I need to make the out or the end of the clip to match the package. Reading the script before you edit is very important.
