Another Phenomenal Television Production!
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.
Our sincere thanks to the prestigious business owners and business leaders who served as featured guests for the student interviews:
Barry Zhang, CEO, Princetel
Multimedia Artist Chee Bravo
International Sculptor Autin Wright
Dianne Ciccone and Carol Hill, Trenton Museum Society
Chental Song Bembry, Author, Entrepreneur and former Beyond Expectations student returned after recently graduating from Hampton University as a Broadcast Journalist and completing an internship at ABC World News Tonight with David Muir. (Recent coverage in Buzzfeed)
The feedback from the day was overwhelmingly positive and will provide memories that the students won’t soon forget. Final episodes coming soon.
