A proven interest in multi-camera production, a lively interest in television entertainment and a willingness to work as part of a team are essential. We are looking for people who are practically minded and who have a good general education although there are no specific educational requirements for this course.
While many applicants will have a degree from a British or overseas university, we will consider applicants who do not have a degree if they have an impressive portfolio, a creative track record or an alternative qualification.
Months of entry
There is nothing quite like cutting a live TV show. This unique 12-month course aims to prepare you for a successful future as a vision mixer in live and recorded multi-camera studio TV production.
It is run in partnership with Sky, the UK’s largest pay-TV broadcaster, who host two of the modules including a six-week internship as part of the course.
Students will collaborate with those on other courses to make TV shows in our state-of-the-art 4K TV studio – equipped with the latest Sony vision mixer as used by BBC Studioworks plus Viz graphics. Our exercise ‘simulator’ also allows students to practise cutting a variety of material on the Sony mixer ‘as live’. You will work on multiple genres including sport, music and drama.
Vision Mixing for Television Production is a specialism within our Cameras, Sound and Vision Mixing for Television Production Diploma. Throughout the year you will work alongside those specialising in sound and cameras to make multi-camera TV productions.
Sky guarantees to employ at least one graduating camera operator, sound recordist or vision mixer each year.
All NFTS students can attend the School’s masterclasses programme, with recent guests including Martin McDonagh (In Bruges, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri), Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag, Killing Eve), Asif Kapadia (Amy, Senna, Diego Maradona), Lynne Ramsay (You Were Never Really Here, We Need to Talk About Kevin), Louis Theroux, and M Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense, Glass).
