This manual was created with the intentions to inform and educate individuals about creating their own television/video production. Throughout the period of time allotted me for this thesis project, I have gained knowledge that will be beneficial in acquiring a position at a television station or starting my own company. Vast experience is obtained through working or interning in the media field. While working for the Communication Services, I learned shortcuts, tips and ways to efficiently execute T.V./Video productions. This experience accompanied with my collegiate instruction on the television/video world has heightened my interest in this field. When producing or directing a production, you have the power vested in you to create something that once was a thought. Through good quality productions and a competent stuff, the sky is the limit for a career in production. Understanding all aspects of T.V./Video Production such as lighting, audio, and directing will make you a better producer or director. Being multifaceted in the television/video production field is a plus. With that being said, this manual exposed numerous positions that are important to a production. Needless to say the more technical duties you know the better chance of getting a job or if you are independent the less people you will have to pay.
