Course Description

Certificate in Live TV and Studio Broadcast

Learners on the programme will be actively encouraged to experiment and develop their creative practice. This is achieved by progressively advancing the learners’ knowledge, skills and competencies using a comprehensive range of industry-standard TV studio technologies, storytelling, presentation and research approaches and production techniques.

The three modules taught in this course are:

This module will introduce learners to the fundamental production technologies in the multi-camera TV studio setting. Learners are trained and tested – according to health and safety procedures – in each of these industry-standard TV studio technologies which include rigging, setup, operation and derigging.

The objectives of the module are that:

  • Learners gain experience practicing the skills necessary to perform the roles and responsibilities of each member of a TV studio crew.
  • Learners also begin to develop their critical and creative skills in multi-camera TV production.
  • This module builds on the core single-camera production skills gained in the first semester of the programme in the following modules: Production and Direction for Screen, Sound Recording and Production 1, Introduction to Production Design, Introduction to Cinematography and Introduction to Post-Production Editing 1.

This module facilitates learner development of skills in the creative application of TV studio production technologies in a multi camera environment.

In meeting the module’s objectives:

  • Learners use industry-standard TV studio equipment and techniques to effectively tell stories within the conventions and genres of TV production.
  • This module builds on the core single and multi-camera production skills gained in the first year of the programme and further enables learners to critically analyse and creatively explore a number of genres in TV and multi-camera studio programming.
  • Learners apply the skills gained in the module to their independent programme productions for the GCD TV channel in the second semester.

Building on the skill-sets acquired as part of TV Studio Principles and TV Studio Practices in stages one and two of the programme, this module will further learners’ creative application of TV studio production technologies in a multi camera environment. Learners are tasked with exploring the use of industry-standard TV studio equipment and techniques in experimental audiovisual practices, which requires them to inventively apply multi camera studio technologies and advanced keying, graphics, LiveSet and Live Matte applications. Learners both develop and present an Independent studio practice project that they produce in the TV studio over the course of the second semester.
