There is nothing quite like cutting a live TV show. This unique 12-month course aims to prepare you for a successful future as a vision mixer in live and recorded multi-camera studio TV production.
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 make TV shows in our state-of-the-art 4K TV studio – equipped with the latest Sony vision mixer as used by BBC Studioworks plus Viz graphics. Our exercise ‘simulator’ also allows students to practise cutting a variety of material on the Sony mixer ‘as live’. You will work on multiple genres including sport, music and drama.
Train on sophisticated broadcast vision mixing consoles, build and realise complex live visual effects to the director’s brief. Using these high-end production tools, vision mixing is like editing - but in real time. Cut, mix and wipe between cameras, pre-edited clips and other video sources live. Learn how to mix a variety of genres from situation comedy to fast paced entertainment and music shows adding digital effects and captioning in real time.
Vision Mixing 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 cameras 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.
