Live Broadcasting and Internet TV
A strong feature of the TV Arts programme is the opportunity to get involved in live broadcasting and the development of a dedicated internet TV channel. For the first time this year students used their develping skills to stream live footage of the Degree Show.
The annual Arts Degree Show incorporates the work of every final stage art, design and media student. It is the culmination of three challenging years and a great opportunity for students to show their work off to friends, family, fellow students, prospective employers and the general public. The transformation of working studios into sleek gallery spaces takes weeks of hard work and months of planning, but on the opening evening all is revealed and everyone can breath a sigh of relief as they congratulate themselves on a job well done and look forward to life beyond university. It is this momentous and busy event that TV Arts students chose to use as a backdrop for a live internet TV broadcast, an opportunity to test and hone their skills. Fronted by student Ryan Brewer the team presented, interviewed and commented on the show with a live stream linked from the Degree Show website (www.plymouth.ac.uk/artsdegreeshow).
The final footage has been edited into bite size chunks with each piece serving as a snap shot of the work produced by students within each of the Degree Show featured courses including Fine Art, 3 D Design, Digital Art and Technology, Graphic Communication with Typography, Illustration, Media Arts, Photography, and of course TV Arts!
