ABOUT THE SCHOOL

The Cambridge TV School provides a practical approach to learning TV production skills. We use recognised industry practices and experts to deliver tuition. The school works closely with Cambridge TV, the recently franchised local TV station (Freeview 8 and Virgin 159) and we have created an exciting and driven atmosphere where students create programmes and broadcast them both locally and globally via our online services, every day. We don’t just recreate the norms of the current industry. Cambridge TV School sets itself at the forefront of changing technology and regulations, welcoming new ideas, innovative approaches and encouraging students to become video entrepreneurs.

SO, WHAT ARE SATURDAY SESSIONS?

Commencing Saturday 8th October 2016 and running for 8 sessions, we are offering a programme makers’ workshop aimed at those currently in full time education and who have aspirations in the Industry. The purpose is to up-skill participants in all aspects of factual (non-fiction) TV production and create one or more ‘packages’ that can be broadcast on Cambridge TV as part of our regular output. Each session will be practical & project-based, working on specific items either sourced by the participants or derived from the mass of potential stories available to our regular news team and magazine producers.

CONTENT WILL INCLUDE:
  • Camera skills for Broadcast quality presentation using Canon C100, Sony NX-03, Canon XA20 kits
  • Setting up a good interview, lighting, sound, vision, 1/2/3 camera shoot
  • Getting the ’Top line’ right and assembling a good narrative
  • Asking good questions on camera.  Probing and follow-up
  • Editing: Getting the best from Final Cut Pro or Adobe
  • Editing: Learning how to edit to broadcast standards – finding the narrative
  • Location sound and post production fixes
  • Presentation skills, studio practice and reading from Autocue
  • Making good material with DSLRs
  • Studio skills: Cameras, mixing rather than editing, lighting, scheduling and broadcast
  • How to plan and make a good short documentary piece (theory & practice)
  • Treatments, scripts and pitching ideas for programmes
  • Producing and directing.  What’s expected and how does one perform these roles
  • Protecting rights and releases. Regulations, safety and good practice
We will tend to organise each session around particular themes and topics, for example, Making programmes in a presenter-led fast-paced style, Organising a studio discussion, Planning & shooting a short op doc, and so on. The nature of the activities will be flexed to suit the skills, abilities and interests of the participants whilst ensuring that we cover the topics listed above. Wherever possible we will work with current topical content with a view to creating material that can be broadcast – thereby generating credits for the course participants. Participants are welcome to bring their own cameras & laptops but the studios and camera kits from Cambridge TV will be available for use on the course.
WHEN AND WHERE DO THE SESSIONS TAKE PLACE?
Sessions will commence promptly at 10.00 on consecutive Saturdays and run until at least 16.00. Lunch will be available at the TV Studios. The Cambridge TV School HQ is located at: 16 Signet Court, Swann’s Road, Cambridge, CB5 8LA
