TV Production in the Academy: Bringing Commercial Practices into the Classroom
Brown, L. (2015). TV Production in the Academy: Bringing Commercial Practices into the Classroom. New Directions in Film & TV Production Studies for University of West of England & Royal Television Society Bristol. Watershed, UWE Brisol, UK 14 - 15 Apr 2015
This paper critiques the tradition of television programme making within the context of academia and the ‘real world’ of commercial television programme-making and discusses how to maximise the commercial opportunities by understanding the nature of the television business and how programmes are commissioned and funded. It explores the barriers between these worlds, and looks at how they can be removed to enable a closer working relationship that has maximum impact. One way of doing this is through internal production companies housed at Universities and ran with the expertise and track records of dual professionals. What are the implications of this and is it a sustainable and helpful way for academia to engage with the broader screen industries?
