IMPORTANT: Before you express interest, please read everything in the description below. You must specify which team(s) are of interest to you in your applicationAbout aAh! aAh! already operates as a well established arts & culture magazine and online platform run by student volunteers with a passion for journalism and a love for Manchester. It is honest, engaging and curious; a trusted source for relevant news, views, creative work and information. Join this Rise project to help launch the newest member of the aAh! family: aAh! TV Overview Students will produce a monthly half-hour show broadcast from the TV Studio in the Grosvenor Building, with guidance, training and mentorship from staff. Each month students from a varied set of courses will work together to plan and produce a professional quality live-streamed arts & culture TV show. The show will be focussed on the Manchester creative scene; including reviews of gigs/plays/films/exhibitions/venues, artist interviews, panel discussions, performances and more. Each episode will be a mixture of pre-recorded packages and live elements. This will offer the full experience of working on a professional production: planning field pieces, scheduling to strict time constraints, guest booking & liaison, studio technology, presenting to camera etc. The shows will be live-streamed to YouTube and Facebook, and the back catalogue will remain on these platforms. What you need to bring to the table
- Commitment: there will be a run of 6 shows throughout the academic year, we are asking you to commit to working on one of them, but you can continue to work on others
- You must be available for weekly meetings, plus a fuller schedule in the week of the show
- You will also have to undertake work in your own time away from these meetings (e.g. writing scripts, attending gigs to review, visiting galleries, creating graphics etc.)
- You will be required to meet deadlines and work to schedules
- This is a student-led project, we are open to ideas - bring your creativity to the table
- Technical Broadcast Team (TBT) The technical team will operate the cameras, vision mixing, sound, lighting and run the graphics and pre-recorded packages into the live show.
- Content Creation Team (CCT) The content creation team will work to create the pieces that make up the show. They will pitch story/feature ideas, design running orders, and some of them will present to camera.
- Events Management Team (EMT) The events management team will look after the smooth running of the show - liaising with guests, carrying out risk assessments, logistics and ensuring good communication.
