Science World – Live Production

On March 1, 2016, in Television & Video Production, by Television Faculty

Each year, one of our favourite projects is our first-year Television & Video Production trip to Science World to produce a live cut of their centre-stage science shows.

The Television Students students bring our Broadcast Pix Mica HD Flypack down to Science World, and learn how to create an entire live television production facility – from scratch.  The process isn’t simply turning on cameras – students need to understand signal flow, camera feeds, the intercom and audio system, as well as how to safely manage a considerable amount of production equipment in a very public setting.

The Science World staff love having BCIT Television there, as our sizable equipment setup generally becomes another exhibit for the families in attendance to observe, and we send the finished productions back to Science World to aid in the training of their staff.  Something for everyone!

You can see our full gallery of behind-the-scenes production photos on our Flickr Page as well!

Our first year Television students are now in the midst of our initial multi-camera training production, “Studio 1 Live”.  We use a talk-show format to introduce students to a basic live production, where they have the opportunity to experience the job functions necessary to produce the show, including directing, camera, audio, switching (technical directing), lighting, and more.

Some of the pictures were shot on Halloween, which may explain some of the outfits…

2013 World Partnership Walk

On May 27, 2013, in Television & Video Production, by Television Faculty

Faculty, Students, and alumni of the BCIT Television & Video Production Program were pleased to volunteer our equipment, time, and expertise again this year for the 29th annual World Partnership Walk in Vancouver’s Stanley Park.  Every year, the walk generates millions of dollars in charitable donations to help end global poverty.

Our volunteers produced content for the main-stage LED screen, as well as covering the entire event with the same portable high-definition production equipment that we train students of our full-time program to utilize.

For the third year in a row, the Television & Video Production students at BCIT will provide a live stream of the FIRST Lego League BC championships event.

This year, we will have demonstrations and interviews during the downtime in between rounds.

Tune in to watch the event live on Jan 26, 2013 from 11:30am to 4:00pm Pacific time.
