Broadcast Television Production
Did you know that Rutgers houses its own award-winning professional TV studio? Gain inside access this summer!
Emmy award-winning lighting director Peter Troost, will teach a 6-week course that will cover all the main aspects of professional television production from field to studio-based. Using state-of-the-art equipment at the Rutgers iTV Studio (www.rutgers.tv), the university’s only broadcast facility for over fifty years, students will complete short group projects (both field packages and in-studio segments) while learning about scriptwriting, pre-production planning, camera, audio, lighting, directing, producing, reporting, videography and more. They will also get to work with, and learn from industry professionals. Post production training will be provided by an Apple-certified instructor and will concentrate on logging, capturing and editing on our Final Cut Pro system. The class will meet on six consecutive Thursdays, with additional time for online assignments, through e-college, and pre-production. This experience will provide a glimpse into the many careers in television, multimedia, audio and video production. This course is designed for communications, journalism, media and visual art majors, as well as those interested in learning more about the creative and technical aspects of television, both behind the scenes and in front of the camera.
Students in the Summer Scholars Program may also register for this course.
