Had a chance to evaluate the Sony FS-700 camera last weekend, and did a bit of shooting in Steveston and Richmond to test out the camera and see what it could do.
Check out the video below!
Our second-year students have spent some time developing a short 30-second promotional video for the Television & Video Production Program.
It’s hard to get a sense of how challenging and exciting our program is, but they took a good shot at it!
It’s February, which means our first-year Television & Video Production students are in the midst of commercial productions!
The projects begin at this time in the spring every year and are designed to take the foundation skills that students learn in courses teaching planning productions, camera, lighting, editing and writing, and apply them in team projects.
The first set of commercials that the student production companies are working on this term:
- BC Transplant Society
- Commercial Drive Midwives
- Nike 6.0 Shoes
- Press Start Video Games
- Muscular Sclerosis Society Canada
- Frank’s Red Hot
- What8ver Cafe
- BCIT SIFE
Come out and meet us at the BIG info session & Program Expo!
If you’re interested in seeing what the BCIT Television and Video Production program has to offer, drop by BCIT’s Burnaby campus on Wednesday, March 2nd from 5-8pm.
The entire Broadcast Department will be set up in TownSquare A/B so visitors can meet our students and faculty, and have a look at the Television and Video Production program’s P2-HD production workflow combined with our new Broadcast Pix and EVS replay unit for live production!
This semester our first-year students will be producing 16 thirty-second commercial spots over the next couple of months (2 per week). The goal is to train students in the entire production process, from pitching an idea, right through to production and post. This isn’t all about just running out the door with a camera and shooting, but about the planning, logistics that need to go into making a production happen.
By strange coincidence, the first two commercials this year are alcohol-related!
For a bit of background, each student production company (usually group of 5) is required to produce two 30-second commercials this term, and we stipulate that at least one of them must be a real client (to give the project a bit more of a reality-check).
First up was a project for Heineken Beer which illustrates the old saying about, boy meets girl, boy chooses the wrong beer, other boy who chooses the “right” beer gets the girl.
Second up, was a spot for Industry Bar & Grill in Richmond selling on the idea that no matter what might happen by accident, it’s all good for this bar’s patrons!
