TV Broadcasting I

TV Broadcasting I–In semester one, students will learn the five components of television camera operations, audio, lighting, writing, and editing. This class uses a “hands-on” approach to teaching.  In semester two, students will continue perfecting the five basic components of television broadcasting.  The “hands-on” approach will continue as we will introduce studio production.  Students will have the opportunity to learn anchoring, directing, producing, studio cameras, audio, and studio lighting.  Students will produce programming that will be aired on closed-circuit television at Ben Davis High School.

TV Broadcasting II–Students will continue with the five components of television broadcasting and studio production in this “project oriented” class.  Students will have the opportunity to provide content for and the production of programs produced by BDTV including the announcement newscast and any cable programs.  The second semester of this course uses skills developed in the previous three semesters.  Students will have the opportunity for internships, co-op programs, and job shadowing at local stations.
