Are you ready for Prime Time?
Want to make TV shows like The Walking Dead and Modern Family? Are you a fan of Game of Thrones or House of Cards? Do you want to write or direct the next great breakout show for HBO or Netflix?
You can do any and all of these things as a Television Writing and Production major. You will learn how to develop characters, write dialogue, create a series “bible” and develop the on-going storylines that drive episodic television. You will also learn about casting, directing, working with actors, and producing as well as lighting, shooting, editing, capturing sound and creating sound effects.
Using our 4-camera, state-of-the-art high definition television studio, industry-standard technology like the Avid editing system, state-of-the-art digital cinema cameras such as the Red One and Sony F65, our students create and produce half-hour comedy and drama pilots shot over Interterm and Web series produced in our Byte-Sized Television classes.
Our students' work has won national recognition. Three years in a row (2009, Kate So Far; 2010, Rising Above; 2011, Coyotes), the Interterm TV pilots have been recognized as finalists in the New York Television Festival, a competition open not only to students but to also to independent professionals. Work by Dodge College TV students has also won notice in festivals and other contests, including:
• Higher Education screened at the Independent Television and Film Festival in Hollywood (Aug. 2011)
• Two Close won Best Television Pilot Award from the Caucus for Producers, Directors, and Writers (Dec, 2012)
• Called To Serve won Outstanding Drama 2013 ITV Festival and Best TV Drama at the Independent Television & Film Festival in Dover & Wilmington, Vermont (Sept. 2013)
