In spring 2020, from the Today Show to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, live in-studio television shows across the nation were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Now more than ever, people are finding new ways to connect during the pandemic. The students who produce television for USC’s official campus television station, Trojan Vision, are no exception. Especially, USC senior Michelle Au, who served as the Trojan Vision station manager last year.
Blackmagic Design announced today that it has formed a strategic partnership with the USC School of Cinematic Arts to provide Blackmagic hardware and software to the School over three years.The products will be used by USC students studying filmmaking and post production, while broadcast production students will now have the opportunity to work with UltraHD in the school’s television station, Trojan Vision.
When it started 10 years ago, Trojan Vision was short on facilities, personnel and equipment, but long on the dream of what could be. A decade later, the dream has become reality, with the station serving the university, winning national awards and providing hands-on experience that has enabled students to launch their careers.
The production staff in the cramped control room at Trojan Vision’s operations center on 32nd Street customarily breaks into applause at the end of the evening newscast. It’s as much to relieve the tension of producing a live television show as to congratulate each other about the quality of the broadcast.
