Television Production Technology
McFatter’s Television Production Technology program is the most comprehensive training for the industry in South Florida. Curriculum includes everything needed in the video production industry: studio camera, jib camera and remote camera operation, sound mixing and recording, studio and remote lighting techniques, scripting, set and scenery design, teleprompting, technical directing, producing, and video editing.
Students edit using Adobe Premiere and Final Cut Pro, and are taught video compositing techniques in After Effects and Photoshop. In addition to these core components, students also learn things not commonly taught at other video training facilities, such as preventive maintenance and video monitoring. As part of their training, students participate in Broward County Public School’s television station, where they get hands-on experience. Students don’t come to McFatter TV Production to get the training they want…they come to get the training they need.
