BCOM 271 TV And Video Production II

This course is an in-depth study of television commercial production. Heavy emphasis is placed on digital video editing using professional-level editing software including AVID Express Pro and Final Cut Pro. In addition, students will be exposed to more advanced techniques in television studio production such as extensive usage of the switcher, including “keying” graphics and text, chromakeying and the use of effects, dissolves and wipes. Through lecture, demonstration and practice, students acquire complete skills to do all types of television and video production. The course is designed to advance students to entry-level positions for the various behind-the-scenes jobs in a television station. Experience and knowledge are gained in the field, studios and classroom. At the conclusion of this course students will produce a final tape or “demo” tape with which to demonstrate skills to prospective employers. The course concludes with an externship appropriate to student interest and ability.
