Is the Industry Certificate: TV Shooter Producer right for you?

This course is ideal for production staff who want to up-skill to become competent at recording quality video and sound on set and on location. It has a technical focus, and includes a range of practical exercises so students can consolidate their skills shooting in uncontrolled/unscripted situations.

The course covers:

  • How to efficiently and correctly build and set up camera, audio and tripod systems from a deconstructed kit, correctly link cameras and audio equipment (with a focus on proper placement and use of radio mics on subject) in an unscripted/documentary/reality environment.
  • How to control and adjust camera and audio settings to correct parameters under a range of shooting conditions.
  • Rushes labelling and protocols and basic data wrangling skills.
  • Basic lighting skills.
  • Visual storytelling skills and how to ensure sufficient coverage in an unscripted environment.

This is not an advanced cinematography course and does not cover drama camera crew skills. If you are interested in developing skills in drama camera operation we suggest the Industry Certificate: Camera Assisting. If your focus is on becoming an all-rounder/digital content creator we suggest the Industry Certificate: Content Creation which includes post production, and uses less complex cameras.

Industry Certificate content has been validated by our Industry Advisory Panels.
