My multi-media group got off to a rocky start with this project. We originally planned to feature a girl on the WVU boxing team, but before we got started, she broke her hand.
We then changed our focus, and decided to do a story about the Morgantown Roller Vixens. They are a new roller derby league based in Morgantown. The Roller Vixens are one of five new roller derby leagues in West Virginia. Roller derby is taking off across America actually.
We missed our first chance to shoot video when practice was cancelled due to snow. We actually made it to the next practice, but most of the girls did not show up because of an apparently epic party the night before.
Finally things turned around for us at the Vixens’ next practice. We were able to get the video we needed, and our video actually turned out pretty well. We were all pleased at the result, and relieved that it was over.
Below are the links to our story and some other relevant sites.
