Week 11: PTC and Australian Music

Tame Impala: super awesome Aussie music goodness 🎵

Working to a camera and an Aussie musician, Keith Urban has both bases covered.

Key learning and task, part 2:

  • Let’s look back at what we’ve done so far
  • Presenting to camera and connecting with your viewer
  • Keyword a script
  • Develop techniques for reading scripted material and communicating effectively on camera
  • Ultimately, you will create your own TV show-reel to send to an agent or an employer

When trying to land a radio job, Content Directors will want you to send in an air-check. It’s a short audio sample (MP3) running about 2 minutes that showcases your best moments. In TV land, you’d upload a showreel; The Gold Coast’s Alo Baker does a good job:

TASK

Continue the piece to camera we started last week.

  1. Write a script or keywords for a 60 second piece to camera. This should be a video CV, introducing yourself and your professional goals and/or career highlights. (If you would like to present on a different topic, you must negotiate this with your teacher prior to scripting.) 
  2. Submit the script and plan for approval to your teacher.
  3. Record multiple takes, review them, and submit one as your first choice. Include your other takes in your submission to WEEKLY TASKS FOLDER

Tidy up any loose ends for tomorrow’s radio show and then start work on the next, themed: Australian Music. 

Reminder, the ARIA Awards are on November 24:
