TVSB’s Intro to Television Production Camp sessions introduce youth to the basics of media production in the TVSB Studios through hands-on experience. Students will use TVSB’s professional studio production equipment to learn the basics of script-writing, camera work, lighting, directing, sound design, acting, on-camera, and editing. By the end of the week, students will have produced an entire production and each will receive a DVD copy of the program they produce. TVSB provides all the equipment. You just need to provide a sack lunch & drink.
