Students will learn to use high-definition film equipment and produce documentary programming. Training obtained through these courses could allow for students to eventually be promoted to paid positions within the VCU-TV/HD program.
“We decided to switch things up a bit and start having students actually take these courses,” VCU-TV/HD senior producer Lisa Figueroa Crawford said. “Then, they would take the courses, move up to an internship and then if they’re lucky, get a producing job.”
The courses will be open to all VCU students, but applicants must submit a résumé and be interviewed beforehand. An advanced-level course will be offered starting in the fall semester of 2010.
