Chattahoochee Tech Students to Shoot National Signing Day Coverage

With less than a week to go before the anticipation, merriment and excitement of National Signing Day, Chattahoochee Technical College students are gearing up and getting ready. However, it won’t be the college’s football players on display. Students and faculty with the college’s Television Production Technology Program are prepping to step into the roles as a film crew for local Atlanta Television Station WAGA Fox 5. The annual event, which is the first day that a high school senior can sign a binding National Letter of Intent for college football with a school that is a member of the NCAA, is popular with sports fans and media experts alike.

When Wednesday, February 6, rolls around, these students will be letting the cameras roll, adjusting lighting, running sound boards and performing other duties for the broadcast. This is not the first time the students will be filling those rolls. The college has provided students and faculty to assist in several recent broadcast assignments, including two live productions for the station’s coverage of the Atlanta Falcons playoff games and taped segments for its tailgate show. The program has also provided coverage of two high school football games per week for Fox 5 Friday night coverage for the last two seasons.

Chattahoochee Tech students will be setting up their production in Dacula – just off Highway 316 toward Athens.

“The setup will include five cameras and control room with graphics for name supers,” said Instructor Ian Feinberg. “The venue will have a dais where the athletes will sit and a panel with moderators to ask questions of the athletes about what school they have chosen and why.”
