Big Brother Canada

On September 24, 2012, in Television & Video Production, by Television Faculty

Special thanks to our first and second year Television students who volunteered to help out the Insight Productions crew with their Vancouver casting session for Big Brother Canada!

Hi all,

On behalf of Gord, Craig, and myself, I would like to say an ENORMOUS thanks to everyone who came out yesterday! I know how grueling your program is and we really appreciate that you chose to spend the free moments of your (early!) Sunday with us. I hope you know how incredibly vital you were to the process yesterday.

We would not have had the flawlessly amazing day that we did if it weren’t for each and every one of you being on the ball and tackling any task we threw at you. I can’t even count the number of times our producers came up to us to compliment your energy, enthusiasm, and eagerness to help! You all made me totally proud to be a BCIT alum!

Thank you again from our entire team at Big Brother Canada and don’t forget to tune into the show on Slice in the spring! You should be super proud of your contribution in making what is sure to be an incredible cast and an even more amazing show!

Variety Show of Hearts Telethon

On February 18, 2012, in Television & Video Production, by Television Faculty

Many alumni of the Television & Video Production Program work on the annual Variety Show of Hearts Telethon, and we usually arrange a tour for our students so they can see what goes into the “behind the scenes” production of the event.

Visiting the set is a great chance for our first-year students to begin making industry connections with the production staff (many of whom work at Global Television, ProShow, and many local industry freelancers)…

This group of first-year TV students (posing with one of our TV instructors, who also works the event yearly), started off by touring the production Saturday morning, and subsequently volunteered, or were hired – doing everything from PA’ing and working with the producers, to studio camera for the live show…
