Making brilliant live TV, such as Strictly Come Dancing or The X Factor is something of a hidden art. Students from Collyer’s recently got a behind- the-scenes insight, during a production day in the studios at Ravensbourne University in London. The day was organised as part of the progression process for students considering careers in the broadcast industry.
During a packed schedule, students learned skills in camera work, sound design, lighting, floor management, content creation, vision mixing, autocue, graphics and direction.
Jonathan Nunns, Head of Media Studies at the Ofsted Outstanding sixth form college, was delighted: “There is nothing like practical hands-on experience to help students make their career choices and this day provided them with exactly that.”
Rob Hussey, Vice Principal (Quality & Curriculum) said: “Colossal thanks to Jonathan and the team for creating this wonderful opportunity for students focussing on a career in the television industry. Ravensbourne is widely regarded as one the leading institutions in this field and we are thrilled to have cemented such close links with the academic team there over the years.”
