In addition to textbooks and stationery, 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 & Video Production faculty members recommend that students purchase a portable computer to utilize in addition to BCIT computer labs (please see specifications above). Software applications may be used on either Mac or PC platforms; Television and Video Production students will learn and utilize both systems.
Access to an inexpensive camera capable of recording HD video is also valuable for training purposes. While most 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 & 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.
