Learning Diary Week 4 –
In our fourth week of Television Studio Production Skills we filmed a short news report using the auto-cue in preparation for our assessment the following week. This was more difficult than the previous week as the two reporters had to be looking at the correct cameras whilst reading the auto-cue so the director had to make sure they were properly briefed on which cameras they would be cutting to and when.
We filmed five of these news reports and each time I took on a different role including camera operator, floor manager, PA, vision mixer and auto-cue operator. I also decided on the floor and gallery role I felt was best at to do in the assessment in week 5. For this I chose vision mixer and floor manager.
