This module is designed to help students understand the nature of inserts and practically produce them so that they can be used in a variety of studio programmes.
A Demonstrate their knowledge of research and production techniques in relation to the creation of inserts
B Demonstrate an understanding of the need for cutaways in the production of inserts
C Interview people in order to produce inserts
D Deploy basic editing skills in order to create inserts
E Operate individually and as part of a team in the production of inserts
The teaching sessions are divided into two components (lectures and practical workshops).
The lectures will introduce students to inserts – how they are produced, different shooting techniques in their production as well as develop their basic understanding of the importance of inserts in TV programmes and also, develop their critical understanding of what particular inserts might mean in the context of a TV programme.
The practical workshops will develop production skills such as research, planning, organisation, production management, camera, lighting, sound, post production and crucially interviewing techniques.
Students will work independently or in small crews to develop their ideas and produce their own inserts.
