As third year Communications students majoring in Television and Screen Production here at AUT University, we were tasked to produce a corporate or community video for a client. The video I am producing is for Pacific Journalism Review, coincidentally and delightedly celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.

There are 20 students in the major; hence 20 videos are currently being produced, each on a different topic. I chose to take on PJR for a few reasons. Firstly, I’ve known the editor, David Robie, and the designer,  Del Abcede, for a number of years now.

Secondly, since my mother has started her PhD I’ve been getting more familiar with academic journals.

Lastly and most importantly, I wanted to produce something with significance – a video that can have importance and that can mean a whole lot more than a university assignment. This video will tell the story of Pacific Journalism Review’s life over 20 years and it will be a celebration of this momentous milestone.

It will be shown at the PJR 20th Anniversary Conference with the theme "Political Journalism in the Asia-Pacific" at AUT University on November 27/28/29. Later it will be made available on the PMC YouTube channel.
