About the Program

Conestoga's Broadcasting - Television and Independent Production program recognizes the increasing importance of independent production in video content creation while maintaining the high quality standards demanded in the broadcast arena.

Students who are passionate for the art of visual storytelling through film and video will learn to write, shoot, edit, and perform on camera. Storytelling is enhanced through lighting, sound design, and post-production finishing, using industry-standard software to edit, composite, animate motion-graphics, and colour grade. Students work individually, and in both small and large crews. They learn to market themselves and their productions through the web and social media.

In the final semester, students have the opportunity to secure an industry placement and to choose from a number of program specializations, including short narrative film, sports mobile, freelance video, and series development. (Program specialization options are subject to minimum enrolments each year).

Conestoga Connected, a two-time national-award-winning televised program, is developed each year by students in the series development specialization.

The program's inventory of HD field cameras and professional lighting kits is continually enhanced by the acquisition of the latest ancillary gear. Students may use GoPro cameras and mounts; Osmo handheld, gimbal cameras; Fig Rig stabilizers; Glidecam mounts; and a large variety of grip equipment.

The multi-camera production experience is well-served by our fully equipped HD studio, with Ross Carbonite 2 switcher and fibre-connected Ikegami cameras, along with Tricaster flight packs and a jib, for mobile, remote production.

The Broadcasting - Television and Independent Production program will prepare students for most entry-level jobs in the industry and prepare graduates to navigate the world of freelance and contract employment, or create their own jobs through entrepreneurship.
