Major Broadcast Production provides students with an opportunity to produce a high quality production within the broadcast specialty area. It will combine studio (radio, tv and digital arts) and OB (outside broadcast of both radio and tv) and at the same time, allow opportunities for role specialisation suited to the students demonstrated skill and interest. The group production will represent the original work by the student/s, from creative script ideas through to planning and management of all resources necessary to achieve the finished production.
This practice-led course will require demonstrated research applicable to the specific production areas and that results in high quality broadcast programming. Students will actively engage in all aspects of pre-production, production and post-production to bring this about.
