Advanced Broadcast Television allows students the opportunity to create production ideas and work on all modes of a production with a highly supportive teaching staff and a crew consisting of class mates. Using both the studio and Outside broadcasting (OB) facilities, students will produce works chosen and determined by the requirements of the production and/or the client's needs. Students will produce original work that will be pitched to the class, chosen and then scripted. Then in assigned groups students selected for major roles will be responsible for each production and the others perform minor roles, offering each student four roles for the semester, two minor and two major. All four productions will involve students as a team, in developing the concept, contributing script ideas and modification, designing and building the set, planning for individual roles and crewing on each production. Completing this course successfully will enable students to plan a broadcast pathway for their future study/projects.
