All of our producers are either current students or graduates of HackCville’s media education programs, Storyboard (video) and Exposure (photography). Our student writers and producers develop skills in modern media production through publishing stories about creative, civic, and entrepreneurial innovators in the University of Virginia and greater Charlottesville community. You can view all of our current student staff and their published stories below.
Students learn storytelling, video production, photography, social media, and digital publishing. The Pioneer also hosts trips to NYC and DC to tour media companies such as BuzzFeed, NBC, and VICE.
