Film & Television Production


Cinema is one of the most popular forms of art in our age and has a substantial impact in our lives. It has illustrious power to influence human consciousness and world culture. Imagination is what provides the ability to see different aspects of a situation; it is at the heart of all creative processes. The unique power of cinematography has exposed the masses to all sorts of creative ideas presented in the most engaging ways. All this would not have been possible without the very first video recorder, which was created by the Ampex Corporation and was first used in 1956. This important revolution, allowed the creation of motion pictures by capturing multiple frames and playing them in sequence. Since then video, film and television have been used for various purposes most prominently in the entertainment industry. Videos are usually brief and precise and are widely used in the music industry and advertising. A film is used to tell a story in a more detailed manner and may therefore have more actors and is usually longer than a video. TV production usually entails several aspects including selecting programming schedule and creating content that includes commercials and news bulletins.

The process of creating of a video, also known as videography starts by capturing images in motion and creating blended parts of this video in live production and post-production. Since the process involves quite a bit of work, it is not uncommon to find video production teams working together. Every video or film has to tell a story and every production team has writers and screen writers who are responsible for creating the story line and its flow. Filming locations are selected with great regard to the story board. A casting team is then brought in with the responsibility of selecting suitable persons to play the various roles in the film. The team must also consist of camera personnel who have the major role of recording the actual footage. A thorough process of mixing, cutting and editing the footage is always necessary in order to complete the process. Once the head of the production team feels satisfied that the final product is completed as desired, it is referred to as the final cut and is stored on various electronic or digital media. For movies, music videos and other commercial film products, a process of marketing and distribution has to follow.

Most of the concepts that are used in film and video production apply in TV production. The difference however, is that TV production teams have to take into consideration what they broadcast and the fact that they have to air content around the clock. Films and videos are incorporated into TV production since they make up most of the content that is aired. Technology has a very major part in almost every sector; film, video and TV production is no exception. The industry demands the best technical minds and trained professionals in the area are snapped up by major entertainment, broadcast and new corporations. It is also a field that requires quite a bit of creativity and passion. This has to be coupled with a rigorous training regime to result in a competent film, video or TV producer.
