Introduction of Television Studio Practice is a (foundational course) that will see the student become a highly skilled and employable content maker, ready for the broadcast and online television industry.

In this course students will become familiar with terminology, the behind the scenes of television and how a program is developed and produced. Students learn how to function in crew roles (16 -18 per class), and student team members will learn how to handle and creatively operate studio cameras, lighting, and as well, vision and audio mixing gear, and do so in a fully equipped television studio environment.

Each student team member plays a defined role and is totally dependent on another for the creative outcome - a completed production. Students will be supplied with study materials and tutorials in order to allow them to undertake the assignments. The skills learned here will be developed further in TVR 2001 Advanced TV Studio Production. This foundation course will be the first of a number of building blocks to see you build the career you desire. The integration with media partners will be evident through guest speakers, visits to production facilities and within our industry standard facilities.

Residential School will be provided for external enrolees. Students will be afforded opportunities to hear from industry people and to be functioning inside one of our television studios. This will allow students requiring flexible learning to undertake this course.
