CLASS INFO

TV PRODUCTION 1

     Television Production 1 is a fundamental course in television production. After an overview of the history of television and film and the television production process, the course continues with introductory material on camera systems and operations, sound for television, television graphics, non-linear editing, lighting and staging.

This is a hands-on, equipment-intensive course. Students will be responsible for producing and directing several short projects including a commercial, public service announcement, short film, movie trailer and music video.   Each year, the best work from these classes is presented during our annual Premiere: Student Video Showcase.

TV PRODUCTION 2

      This course provides an opportunity for students to work in a team-oriented environment with the goal each day to produce segments for our daily 10-minute-long newscast, The Education Network, our annual Premiere: Student Video Showcase and for contests and film festivals.  Students should be aware that assignments will be given that will require time to be spent after school to film events or produce broadcasts.

TV PRODUCTION 3&4

     This course gives students the opportunity to refine their skills as they produce longer form video projects for contests and film festivals, our annual Premiere: Student Video Showcase, and The Education Network.    Students should expect to write news scripts, short film scripts, and to exercise their story-boarding skills on numerous commercials, PSAs, and music videos.  Students should be aware that assignments will be given that will require significant time to be spent after school to film projects and school events.
