What is it?

This course provides you with the opportunity to develop your own abilities and gain new, unique skills as you produce, direct and crew a multi-camera studio production.

What will I do?

Producers must be able to develop television programme ideas that matter in today’s public service and commercial broadcasting landscape.  What you learn is built on three strands: content creation, production operations and technical competencies. These include idea research, development and production up to final delivery; all the technical competencies required including audio, lighting, camera operation, rigging, operation of a full professional HD broadcast gallery and related technical equipment.
