RULES TO REMEMBER

SOME RULES TO REMEMBER WHEN PRODUCING YOUR SHOW.

1) Communicate daily, email the Sr. Producers, Catharine and Sherry with technical issues or problems you're encountering with your pieces.
2) MEET YOUR DEADLINES:
A) OUTLINES DUE ON MONDAYS FOLLOWING THE SHOW TAPING (Outlines are created from research done on the topic and pre-interviews. Each outline demonstrates a structure for each piece
B) OUTLINES REQUIRE INSTRUCTOR APPROVAL
C) PAPER EDIT DUE BY TUESDAY OF SHOW WEEK AT 6 PM.
D) Once approvals are made, proceed with the edit. Instructor approval on rough cut, end of day Thursday. Final cuts Thursday evening.
E) All items completed and ready for Friday morning. The focus then is on producing the show….getting the set in place, blocking the show and prepping in the control room with full rehearsals.

3) YOU'RE A TEAM…..A SHOW IS ONLY AS STRONG AS THE WILLINGNESS, RESPECT AND COOPERATION THAT YOU ALL GIVE EACH OTHER.

4) B-ROLL, B-ROLL AND MORE B-ROLL. Television is pictures…tell your story through the images you shoot, not just the clips you get. Make sure the b-roll supports both the script and the interview material. B-ROLL MUST BE ORIGINAL…NOT TAKEN FROM YOUTUBE OR THE INTERNET.

5) Pre-interview your experts…get more than one expert on a topic, and thread them through your story structure.
