Introduction to Television Production

If you have ever walked by a movie or television show filming on the street and wondered what it would be like to be a part of that world, Introduction to TV Production is for you. VAT 100: Introduction to Television Production is combined with an afternoon workshop in which you will learn the ins and outs of video production and writing scripts in BMCC's state-of-the-art television and audio studios and digital editing suites. In addition, you will meet industry professionals who will answer your questions about working in television; go on a field trip; and tour New York's own Hollywood-style studio complex, Steiner Studios in Brooklyn. This summer, get ready for Lights, Camera, Action!
