Are you ready for a career in television studio production? A select group of 12 Brooklynites will write, produce, and record their own feature television segments as well as crew on a variety of LIVE studio shoots during the course. Students will become immersed in the studio fundamentals and skills that go into producing a fully fledged studio production. You will learn all aspects of our television studios, including the control room, camera, TriCaster video switching, graphics, 3D set design, audio equipment, teleprompter, robo camera, and recording. Prior studio production experience or a strong desire to learn television studio production is essential.


Oh, we bet you are! We after all, are the place where media dreamers become media makers. Find out what you're made of when applications open in 2019.



The Television Studio Collaborative is broken into three phases:

    In the pre-production phase, you'll formulate and refine your segment idea, and learn all of the ins-and-outs of the studio equipment. 
    During this phase, everyone in the class will produce and direct their own pilot episodes. The class will be a supportive network that crews and give thoughtful and valuable constructive feedback. 
    The final (and most exciting) phase is an opportunity to refine your TV pilot and come out of the class with a stunning television segment. The class will also crew on LIVE television productions as part of the Media Maker Weekend lineup.
