This four part class will offer the basics of producing a studio based production such as a talk show, game show, interview program or other multi-camera productions.  You’ll be exposed to the process of generating ideas, content and understanding the studio requirements to execute and record the program including camera angles, audio requirements, roll-in of video and audio elements and how to effectively produce and direct your studio based shows.  Each participant will have the opportunity to create and record their own concept which will then be played back to the group for critique and discussion.
