Television production module 1 a

  1. 1. Television Production
  2. 2. Television viewing has now reached an all- time high in the United States. A 2009 report by the Nielsen Company says the average American television viewer is watching more than 151 hours of television per month -- up from an average of 145 hours the previous year.
  3. 3. Thousands of students around the world are now using this course in television production to meet serious personal and professional goals
  4. 4.  Completing this course could mean an exciting career in broadcast television, Internet webcasting - institutional videography, satellite programming, mobile video, and other areas -- including the advertising and public relations aspects of any of these. Video production now includes feature films -- the kind you see at your local theater.
  5. 5.  For one thing, you may suddenly be confronted with an internship or job opportunity where this knowledge is essential. Or, you could easily get asked about some of these things in a job interview.
  6. 6. Making of audio visual content to be telecasted or showcased on TV aka small screen, the idiot box, the tube, the boob tube, the box. It can either be Recorded or ‘LIVE’ or delayed transmission Content can either be shot Indoors in a Studio or Outdoors.
  7. 7. The person in charge of launching entire production is generally the producer. He or she comes up with the program concept, lays out the budget for the production, and makes the major decisions. This person is the team leader, the one who works with the writers, hires the director, decides on the key talent, and guides the general direction of the production.
  8. 8. In smaller productions, the producer may also take charge of the more mundane activities. And in small productions, the director may handle the producer's responsibilities. In this case, the combined job title becomes producer-director.
  9. 9. Some productions may also have an associate producer who sets up schedules for the talent and crew and who generally assists the producer.
  10. 10. On a major production, one of the producer's first jobs is to hire a writer to write the script (the document that tells everyone what to do and say). The script is like a written plan or blueprint for the production.
  11. 11. The producer will next consider the key talent for the production. In general, the talent includes actors, reporters, hosts, guests, and off-camera narrators -- anyone whose voice is heard or who appears on camera. Sometimes talent is broken down into three sub-categories: actors (who portray other people in dramatic productions), performers (who appear on camera in nondramatic roles), and announcers (who generally don't appear on camera).
  12. 12. In a large production, the producer will hire the director. The director is in charge of working out preproduction (before the production) details, coordinating the activities of the production staff and on-camera talent, working out camera and talent positions on the set, selecting the camera shots during production, and supervising postproduction (after production) work. In other words, once the producer sets things in motion, the director is in charge of taking the script from the beginning to the very end of the production process.
  13. 13. Assisting a director in the control room is typically a technical director who operates the video switcher. (A rather elaborate version is shown on the right.) The technical director, or TD, is also responsible for coordinating the technical aspects of the production.
  14. 14. One or more production assistants (PAs) may be hired to help the producer and director. Among other things, PAs keep notes on ongoing production needs and changes.
  15. 15. The lighting director (LD) designs the lighting plan, arranges for the lighting equipment, and sets up and checks the lighting. As we'll see, lighting is a key element in the overall look of a production.
  16. 16. Some productions have a set designer who, along with the producer and director, designs the set and supervises its construction, painting, and installation.
  17. 17. The makeup person, with the help of cosmetics, hair spray, etc., sees that the talent look their best -- or their worst, if that's what the script calls for.
  18. 18. The Production Process 1. Knowledge & understanding of this course can be beneficial in the future. 2. Having a solid understanding of the tools and techniques of the entire process makes a major difference in the success of productions -- not to mention your careers. 3.
