February 23 — Twenty middle school students (grades 6-8) recently completed our Introduction to Television Studio Production workshop facilitated by Executive Producer Leontyne Anglin. Following weeks of instruction on media terminology, conducting guest research, reading production schedules and hands-on simulation of varied roles of a production crew, they had the exciting opportunity to see their hard work come to life.
Students hosted and produced 4 new episodes for Beyond Expectations TV in front of a live studio audience!
They did a phenomenal job working collaboratively on set as hosts, camera operators, floor managers, and in the control room as CG operators, audio, graphics and technical directors.
Special thanks to our longtime partner Riverview Studios CEO Jim Parker for his dedication to youth and continuing to make the state-of-the art broadcast facility accessible to BE for students to hone invaluable skills.
