TSN Digital Media Broadcasting


Imagine going live every day for 10 minutes in front of the whole school – being the face Timberline students see every morning on their TV’s. Well this is what the students do who take TSN Digital Media Broadcasting. Timberline has a closed circuit TV system and studio within the school, which enables us to go live every day. Students will have the opportunity to use techniques and technology used in professional television production such as: video and audio recording equipment, lighting, television studio operations including directing and on-camera performance, and the use of digital editing and graphic creation systems. Students will become competent in shooting interviews and visual storytelling by enhancing technical, artistic and practical skills through the use of Final Cut. These skills will then be applied to the production of video news reports, documentaries and features for the live broadcast which is aired on a daily basis. It is very much a hands on course requiring high energy, a positive attitude and the ability to work with a group. Cataclysmic!
