TV Production I Course Overview

Television Production I is a two-semester course designed to introduce students to the variety of skills necessary to create television and video programs. In this course you will have the opportunity to explore careers both in front and behind the camera.
The first semester of TV I is designed to introduce students to the history, terminology, theory, and basics of video production. An understanding of the skills learned the first semester of TV I is needed to be successful in the second semester when much of the time is spent working on projects.
By the end of the second semester, you should be able to run all of the equipment and produce a complex work in a teaming setting. Quality work from TV I may be shown on the daily news show, which is produced by the students in TV II. Students also have the opportunity to gain additional skill by working for the district RITS studio in the production of sporting events.


Television is a very competitive field and equipment is expensive. Developing your skills and work ethic can help you “break out of the pack” and have first shop at opportunities beyond the classroom. Because the school, employers, and community expect quality production work, our standards and expectations are high. To be successful you must develop an ability to be self critical and work in a team setting. Set a high standard of quality for yourself and be willing to rework a piece until it meets the standard. Students who behave in a way which endanger people or equipment may be subject to disciplinary action and possibly removed from the course.
