For the last three weeks, first-year Television & Video Production students have been on-location with the BCIT trades and technology departments practising their camera skills. We would like to thank students and staff in the following areas for helping support our program:
- Sheet Metal
- Technology Teacher Training – Electronics
- Steel Fabrication
- Medical Laboratory
- Piping Trades
- Power Engineering – Steam Lab
- Electrical Trades
- Medical Radiography
And now in HD!
Today marked a first for BCIT Magazine as we put our portable high-definition flypack to good use! Together with our Broadcast & Online Journalism program, we produced the first-ever HD BCIT Magazine. You can watch the show weekly on Wednesday and Thursday through our Livestream channel, or check in later to view it online.
We’ll post some behind-the-scenes photos and video from time to time as well, so not only do you see the stories being presented, but you’ll understand more about the process that the students and faculty go through to put the content together and broadcast it on a weekly basis!
Today was our first “Video Basics” lab with half of our new first-year Television & Video Production students.
The first part of the day was spent in the studio learning about the full-size Panasonic HPX-300 P2-HD cameras that we use for the majority of our day-to-day production work. We cut the students loose after lunch to experience with the cameras and practise setting up and troubleshooting them “in the field” (note: “in the field” in Vancouver usually means “in the rain”. Today was an exception!).
Our second set of first-year students steps up to the plate on Thursday – more photos to follow then!
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.

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!
