Our first-year Television & Video Production students have just started their first group projects this year, 30 second PSAs for local community and charity groups!
This Tuesday we were at the Kitsilano Community Center for a short production illustrating how people from every walk of life can come together to contribute in their community.
Be sure to check back often, as we will be shooting two PSAs every week for the next four weeks, taking a short break, then coming back to start production on 30 second client projects.
You can see our full gallery of behind-the-scenes production photos on our Flickr Page as well!
Every April in Las Vegas, broadcasters from all over the world take part in the largest broadcast and media trade show in North America – The National Association of Broadcasters Convention (aka NABShow). This year, 27 of our BCIT Broadcast Television students organized funding, transport, and accommodations to be able to attend the event.
Although the primary focus of the show is a trades and technology show where manufacturers from all over the world present their latest and greatest broadcast and media hardware and software, it’s also an amazing networking opportunity for the students, with 100,000 attendees from over 156 countries!
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!
