Come experience what it’s like to work behind the scenes in a television production studio.

Here at Gateway Community College you can learn to create your own production in our state-of the-art television studio!

By signing up for Television Production I, you will get hands-on training in Gateway's fully equipped studio using professional grade equipment.

Classroom N310 is a fully equipped studio space with cameras, a production switcher, lighting grid, soundboard, broadcast graphics station, teleprompter and much more.

The classroom is split into 3 sections, the control room, the green room and the studio:

  • The control room is where the production switcher, broadcast graphics station and sound board are located. The sound board can be controlled remotely using our iPad so you can make adjustments from the studio floor if need be. There is also a tally/call system complete with headsets so you can communicate with the people in the studio.
  • The green room is mainly used for staging, there is a preview monitor set up so you can see what is being filmed in the studio.
  • The studio is a fairly large space that has 2 cameras that are connected to the control room, a full lighting grid and teleprompter as well as curtains that can be used as a blue screen or a green screen for Chroma key compositing.

Along with handling audio and video gear, this course will cover the process of writing and producing your own projects for television and will provide you with an opportunity to experience the full range of crew positions needed for a career in the field.

It's a fascinating exploration and you can be a part of it by signing up for COM141 Television Production 1 for Fall, 2017. This could be your first step to an exciting, creative career in film and television. See your admissions counselor for more information or sign up online today.
