BAKER — Five elementary school students know more about television production following a week-long boot camp.

The girls learned how Baker School's WGTV Morning Show is filmed and edited, they operated a camera and served as on-air talent.

Students acted out a few skits, including a back-to-school introduction, and interviewed the school dance team.

The lessons are sticking, students said.

“I’ve learned how to work the cameras … and the (different) shots of medium close-up and wide close-up,” Roxy Fountain, 6, said.

Roxy favors being in front of the camera, especially after portraying Snow White for one of the camp skits.

 Skyler Williamson, 9, said she enjoyed acting and being behind the camera.
