Local TV on Freeview is starting to roll out across the United Kingdom, with Grimsby TV and London Live already launched, Glasgow TV expected to launch in June with Edinburgh TV among a further eighteen due to launch this year.
Local TV offers significant opportunities for volunteering, freelance positions and jobs within this new more localised industry.
The Institute of Local Television has been involved in pioneering local TV since 1989: from researching and representing public demand to drafting amendments to legislation, providing training to programming on local TV in Edinburgh and Dundee.
In July and August, we will be hosting a summer school at Summerhall with Summerhall TV for people who wish to make arts-news for local TV. You will be able to contribute to our sites summerhall.tv, artinscotland.tv and writerstories.tv.
We’ll show you how to construct simple but effective arts-news clips, using a range of HD cameras and editing software such as Premier and Final Cut Pro.
The school will take place from last week of July through till end of August and can address part-time as well as full-time commitment.
If you’re interesting send your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org with links to examples of video work you’ve shot and edited. To ensure a rich experience numbers are limited and the closing date for all applications is 14th JUNE 2014.
Interviews will be conducted either face to face or via Skype (if more convenient).
