Television and Live Events Production

This industry focused course allows you to develop specialist skills and gain a detailed understanding of the many types of production work involved in television and live events. You will learn to creatively produce and record, to design and production manage projects for this exciting industry. You will also gain an understanding for staging productions and of economics (such as sponsorship and income generation), and be taught practical skills to make and transform environments. This course is taught at London College of Communication, at Elephant & Castle, part of University of the Arts London (UAL). **What can you expect?** You will learn to become confident and competent in a range of production skills that chart the entire production process. This includes brief and script analysis, producing and creative direction, lighting and sound, sponsorship and income generation. You will put these to practice through collaborative projects that allow you to try out multiple roles and to experience industry style briefs and challenges within a supportive environment. This is crucial to your career development, enabling you to find the right role that suits your skills and interest. Tutors teach the theoretical aspects of this discipline in a way that helps you to make direct connections with its practice. Topics will cover visual cultural influences, historical moments and sociocultural context. You will also be introduced to the industry's progressive changes, for example, ecological approaches to production and new methods. In addition, regular industry visits and guests will help to integrate you into the real working world. In the second year, you'll be encouraged to sharpen your skills and knowledge through a work placement or to undertake a production project. This provides an invaluable opportunity to widen your professional networks and increase your opportunity for employment. Previous industry partners include London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG), Clarion Productions, Blackout Ltd, Delta Sound, Set Square Scenery, National Theatre Costume and Props Store, Lesley Goring Fashion Productions, MTV and Endemol. In the third year, you will undertake a major production project from conception to completion. This will involve collaborating with fellow students or your industry contacts, taking on a key role within the process and develop your working knowledge of sponsorship, income generation, copyright and pitching. **About London College of Communication** The communications sector is evolving fast.
