TV Production Summer Camp
Create and shoot your own material, scripts, shows and more at our tv production summer camp! Centenary College runs its own television broadcasting and production facility. Students have the opportunity to experience all phases of television and video production. This course is perfect for students interested in learning the skills of production – both in front and behind the camera. The course is divided into two areas of focus – in studio production, and on-site fieldwork. Students are encouraged to attend
multiple sessions so they can experience the full aspect of television production.
Students will work within the college’s TV station, Centenary College Television 23 . Students learn the basics of the three-camera shoot, working on both sides of the camera in our tv production summer camp. They discover how critical lighting and sound are to a quality production. They mix sound, create innovative transitions, and use the editing console to learn non linear editing.
From lighting to sound to camera setup, shooting outside the studio is different and requires a different set of tools and skills. Students at our TV production summer camp use field cameras, tripods and wireless microphones while learning about recording and location management.
Production in Studio and On-Site
Students experience a good mix of in studio and on – site production. The week is usually broken into two distinct projects that the students create. Past projects have been the creation of a movie preview trailer, game show parodies, and full-length in-studio talk shows. Students focus on one major project that requires multiple shoots. Past products have included music videos, movie shorts, and a TV pilot episode. The students are the talent, production team, editors, story line creators and producers.
