This first year module involved learning the basics of each gallery and floor role in a TV studio. These included:
- Vision Mixer
- Sound Operator
- Floor Manager
- Camera Operator
We then had to choose the roles we felt most confident in and act in them for the two assignments. For these assignments we had to work as a whole class to produce:
- A 5 minute news broadcast
- A 15 minute studio-based show
For the second assignment, our group decided to produce a music panel quiz show. My role was part of the set design team, for which we collected music posters from local venues and independent record shops to decorate the set.
When I joined Scratch TV, I was able to develop the skills I’d learnt in both TV modules as I worked in various studio roles, as well as sound and camera operator and editor for location based video.
