In this 6-week technical class, students will rotate through all Studio and Control Room positions in MCM’s large multi-camera studio and in our Green Screen Studio. Participants crew MCM productions as Camera Operators, Technical Directors, Audio Operators, Character Generator Operators, Digital Recorder Operators, Floor Director, and Teleprompter Operators.

Those interested will also have the opportunity to earn an additional certificate in studio lighting, which provides the foundation in understanding basic three point lighting in a studio setting.

No previous television production experience needed, but this is a technical, hands-on training experience, so participants are expected to jump right in and be ready to learn!
