In addition to textbooks and stationary, Television & Video Production students must supply additional resources to ensure they can participate in classes, and deliver assignments to meet learning outcomes. These resources include:
To participate in classroom and lab projects effectively, Television and Video Production faculty members recommend that students may consider purchasing a portable computer to utilize in addition to BCIT computer labs. Software applications may be used on either Mac or PC platforms; Television and Video Production students will learn and utilize both systems.
Access to a inexpensive camera capable of recording HD video is also valuable for training purposes. While most of assignments require the use of BCIT broadcast-quality professional equipment for production and post-production, digital video cameras or digital SLR cameras can be valuable for use on some individual and group projects.
Television and Video Production students are not required to own a vehicle, however students must have a valid driver's license and access to a vehicle in Levels 1 through 4 in order to transport production equipment necessary for individual and group projects.
