Production Control rooms in TV Studios or OB (outside broadcast) vehicles are often referred to as ‘Galleries’ and are responsible for the creation of all our live or ‘as live’ programs. The disciplines required to effectively deliver programs are those associated with the control of time... accurate timing of program segments, effective estimation of script duration and production of easy to read scripts, running orders and schedules. During programs and rehearsals, clear communication and accurate delivery of timing information is essential.
In addition, a good understanding of program making techniques and a methodical approach to administration make for superb program support.
If you work in a gallery, but do not have a technical or craft skill, gallery skills training will give you an insight into the program making process and equip you with the skills needed to partake in multi camera activities.
