VOYAFor both inexperienced and career television production instructors, this handbook details every aspect of production from defining jargon and describing equipment to physically setting up or redesigning a studio. New chapters on nonlinear digital editing and digital technology make this revised edition a valuable new resource. For the new instructor, Kyker and Curchy offer step-by-step instructions on studio setup. Aiming to help schools spend money wisely, they suggest equipment features appropriate for school versus personal use. Once equipment is purchased, the authors provide details on setting up and testing systems. Equally helpful to both new and experienced instructors are production activities, ideas for projects, sample forms, and grading rubrics. Advantages and disadvantages of nonlinear digital editing are described, including tips for replacing old editing systems with computer-based systems. Questions posed prompt instructors to consider the purpose of their programs, to assess how existing equipment is being used, and to decide how to implement new technologies to better achieve their purpose. Most significantly, the authors dispel myths that new technologies outprice old. A true survival guide, the scope of this edition offers something for everyone. Information is well illustrated with photographs and diagrams. Kyker and Curchy begin with the amateur in mind, but progress to the full-fledged production instructor. This book is an essential televison production teaching resource. 2003, Libraries Unlimited, 276p.; Glossary. Index. Illus. Source Notes., $30 pb. Ages 17 to Adult.
