Welcome to my website!

My name is Ethan Watts. I was born in Columbus Ohio and have lived there my entire life. I am currently a junior at Bowling Green State University, studying broadcast journalism and serving in the Ohio Army National Guard.

I have always taken a large interested in the news, media, and films. Through my courses at BGSU I now have over a year of experience with editing videos and reporting.

In my experiences I have gained a lot of knowledge in certain aspects and using certain applications, mostly working with Adobe Premiere and Microsoft Office. I have edited over eleven videos, written numerous stories, and continue to spent my time at the school practicing, learning, and reading about how to write different types of stories, how to conduct interviews, and how to edit footage.

My goal is to hopefully graduate from college with my bachelor's degree in Broadcast Journalism and minor in Military Science. When I graduate I will become a commissioned officer for the United States Army, with the rank of second lieutenant. My plans after college are to try and become a news anchor for any station, specializing in either sports or politics. I know my skills in journalism and knowledge I have gained from the courses I have taken can help me acquire more opportunities and experience to one day achieve my goals.

Jones also is involved with several clubs and activities related to the BGSU Army ROTC on campus. Jones has been in the activities all three years he has been at the school, and plans on using the lessons he has learned to become a better leader and a successful media producer.

Audio Story Project

Elise Mays at work

For this project I had the opportunity to interview Elise Mays, a graphic design major and Emily Gray, a physical therapy major. The two are sophomores at Bowling Green State University and members of the Alpha XI Delta sorority on campus. Both are facing the same problem when it comes to trying to find a balance between grades, a social life, and now having a job. In the interview I spoke to both of them about their experiences with having to juggle all of these aspects that come with life during college. I spoke with Elise at her workplace of Tropical Smoothie on East Wooster, and Emily at the Kroger she works at in Perrysburg.

Slideshow Project

Please enjoy this slideshow compiled with photos taken from an event put on by the BGSU Alpha Xi Delta sorority. The event was a walk to raise funds and awareness for Autsim Speaks Inc. This was one of the first in person events the sorority could organize given the pandemic.

Voiceover Project

This post is my Video Voice Over project. For the project we had to take b-roll footage and embed a recording of a person reading a script over top of the footage. The video is about the Traditions to Tomorrow project for BGSU.

Video Story Project

This is my video story. For this story I spoke with a student from BGSU on her thoughts how the semester on campus has gone while dealing with the pandemic. Initially she was hesitant about coming to campus, however she goes into further details about how she feels that BGSU has done an adequate job of keeping students and staff safe.
