"On the Air" is a mockumentary that follows student Taylor Wallace as she receives an internship at the local news station. However, upon arrival she realizes that she must adapt to the unorthodox methods of WHAT's reporting methods.
A crew of twenty-five students from the University of North Carolina Wilmington and forty cast members (including professional actors from the community) are taking part in the production of an original feature film titled On The Air, sponsored by the university’s student-led television production network, TealTV. With little done on campus, the primary filming location is Coworx at Barclay Commons. Locations have also included special events and places around Wilmington, including this year’s Azalea Festival.
