Course content

Learn how to make professional videos!

Cambridge TV Training has access to the broadcast quality facilities of Cambridge TV. We’re running a short 4-day course for mid-teens who are fascinated by video and want to improve their skills.

Each day we will focus on a different aspect of video production e.g. camera training, audio workshops, video editing sessions. Through this, your skillset will broaden everyday to cover all the main aspects of production that you will need to create videos. In the mornings we have practical workshops and then we practice our skills in the afternoon by filming something interesting!

By the end of the course, we will have filmed and edited a video together with the potential to be broadcast on local TV and online.

In the course will cover:

• Location camera and sound
• Studio production
• Lighting
• Presenting
• Basic editing
• Safety and wellbeing

In terms of the age of participants, this specific course is aimed at people between the ages of 13-16.

A reasonable level of English language skills are needed if it's not your native tongue but otherwise no requirements are needed except a passion for making videos!

Camera training is taught on our Canon XA20 cameras - broadcast quality equipment and the skills you learn can be easily transferred to any other camera. Students are welcome to bring their own equipment to learn how to use properly as well. Advanced students are welcome to try other cameras such as our Canon C100 cameras other camcorders. For video editing softwares, we will be using either Final Cut Pro X or Adobe Premiere Pro.
