FIS TV is produced by students from the Upper School's Media Production and Broadcasting class, who record, edit and mix video segments from a "studio" on the Oberursel Campus. In addition to pre-recorded package, FIS TV students also host a live broadcast called Thursday Night Live and other live-streamed school events.
Yearbook production at FIS provides Grade 6-12 students hands-on experiences on how business works in the publishing world. As they take on roles involving layout, photography, copy, and advertising, students learn about principles of design as well as important considerations when communicating with adults and managing social media content for advertising. Teams interview, survey, and capture the year's highlights and events and production requires the use of professional Adobe desktop publishing software (Indesign, Photoshop and Illustrator). Yearbooks are permanently kept in our school archives but also provide current a students – and alumni – an opportunity to fondly revisit FIS memories from wherever they are in the world.
