The Journal – April 21, 2022

We open with student hosts Michael Giannaris and Valeria Kleshchenko, and Michael is exhausted. He’s even fallen asleep on the set.

When Valeria kicks him awake, Michael shares that this semester has been incredibly stressful, hence why he is so tired.

Valeria takes it upon herself to show Michael and the audience five documentaries to try to help him destress and relax, and even brings in a singer to calm us all down with her beautiful voice.

The Journal is a show that airs annually, where broadcasting students from generation to generation are able to showcase a compilation of their best documentary films. With each year brings a new set of talented students, who share the same creative desire to become masters in the art of filmmaking.

The Journal is 30 minutes of live television, written, produced and performed solely by students in their fourth semester of Centennial College’s Broadcasting program which covers Film, Television, Radio & Digital Media. Students are placed in a real TV studio, equipped with state-of-the-art cameras and high-performance lighting. The show occurs in real time, as students intensely prepare for the big day to simulate Live Television and experience troubleshooting during high-pressure situations.
