About this Unit
In 2016 this unit replaced by 102408 TV Production 1 in Autumn session and 102409 TV Production 2 in Spring session. This is a year-long unit - students should enrol in both Autumn and Spring semesters. Television production is a practical and vocational unit that provides students with a range of skills for working in the television production and broadcast sector. This unit is an introduction to key aspects of professional television production (forms, structures and conventions) with a specific focus on community television in collaboration with TVS and engagement with the Greater Western Sydney communities through targeted partnerships in the area. Students will gain a working knowledge and experience in a range of roles and gain practical experience in filming, sound recording, video editing, post production, planning, scriptwriting and research. There will be the opportunity to gain an in-depth insight into areas such as single and multi camera news production, multi-camera studio productions and outside broadcast coverage of live events, as the unit is resourced with industry-standard field recording equipment including a fully-equipped broadcast van, multi-camera studios and editing suites. With the unit focus in practical, hands-on experience using high-end media equipment, students will gain experience in all aspects of the pre-production, production and postproduction processes, and will be able to experience different roles before specialising in a preferred role for their major projects. The course encourages multiplatform conceptualisation and distribution of projects exploring the futures of television in online, mobile and networked environments.
