Over the course of 8 weeks, "MSG Classroom" students are introduced to the behind-the-scenes world of the television industry and learn first-hand what it takes to put a television show on the air. Students meet with experts in production, editing, directing, camerawork, broadcasting, marketing, public relations and more. The goal of the program is to introduce youth to movie production, editing, organization and script writing.
Participants are able to:
- Identify the various roles involved in producing a successful T.V. show
- Perform basic operations of industry standard audio/visual hardware
- Create a T.V. show with the assistance of MSG professionals that incorporates editing, directing, hosting and public relations
- Network with MSG professionals
Participants meet twice a week at a Children's Aid Society to plan and/or debrief, and one day at Madison Square Garden to meet with industry professionals who educate them about the video production business.
There is an application process to become a part of MSG Classroom.
Applications will be accepted during the fall and spring for the two program cycles.
