McFatter’s Television Production Technology program is the most comprehensive training program for the industry. 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 Pro and are taught video compositing techniques. In addition to these core components, students learn skills not commonly taught in other video training facilities, such as preventive maintenance and video monitoring. Training includes participation in Broward County Public School’s television station, where students receive hands-on experience. Students don’t come to McFatter’s TV Production program to get the training they want… they come to get the training they need.

Classes are located at BECON, 6600 Nova Drive, Davie, FL 33317.
