The Skyview Broadcasting and Media Production program was launched in Fall 2009. It began as a semester-long enrichment class open to 7th and 8th graders designed to introduce students to the world of modern news production. Students are exposed to skills such as digital video editing, camera operation, audio engineering, interview techniques, and advertising concepts. Broadcasting students contribute to and produce a weekly Skyview News show that is viewed by Skyview students and published online.
In the Fall of 2012, we introduced an exiting new Media Production class that is a year-long course designed to give students a more advanced look into the world of film production. Students will explore story and theme, composition, audio, lighting, and post-production topics to produce more complex projects. Students will also study various film history topics through viewings of full-length films from different times and genres.
The Broadcasting and Media Production program is housed in the Broadcasting Lab. The lab is equipped with Mac Mini and iMac workstations for production and editing. We also have a studio space with camera gear, lighting, a green screen and audio equipment.
