Do you have a great eye for a shot? Do you want to bring great TV shows to life?
This unique 12-month course aims to prepare you for a successful future as a camera specialist in broadcast multi-camera studios.
It is run in partnership with Sky, the UK’s largest pay-TV broadcaster, who host two of the modules including a six-week internship as part of the course.
Students will collaborate with those on other courses to shoot TV shows in our state-of-the-art 4K TV studio – equipped with the latest Sony cameras as used by BBC Studioworks. You will work on multiple genres including sport, music and drama.
You will practise the core skills of camera operators: positioning, framing and focus. Learn to use broadcast cameras, repositioning and changing shot as the director demands while the vision mixer cuts and mixes the show. Learn to develop shots, moving with artists or in sympathy with music to create dynamic and exciting television. Begin to light simple interviews and more complex multi-camera lighting techniques.
Cameras for Television Production is a specialism within our Cameras, Sound and Vision Mixing for Television Production Postgraduate Diploma. Throughout the year you will work alongside those specialising in sound and vision mixing to make multi-camera TV productions.
Sky guarantees to employ at least one graduating camera operator, sound recordist or vision mixer each year.
The next course intake will be in January 2023.
