What you take away from the company

VIDEO PRODUCTION I

The first year of the Video Production Program, Interns will receive a general survey of all aspects of television video production and journalism. Students create 3-5 minute films and learn the basics of body language, camera shots/angles, and script writing. In the second semester, students create a five minute newscast and produce it to their liking.

VIDEO PRODUCTION II & III

The second and third years is when students dive into what it takes to be a part of the television industry. Strict deadlines and planning occurs everyday in our newsroom. Each project requires a hard working team! There are so many options and jobs for each type of person. These years are graded on what the student produces, just like a real job.
So never any worksheets!
Students can also enroll in Video Production Lab Courses, which gives them additional time to work on assignments and projects.

VIDEO PRODUCTION ADVANCED STUDY

The fourth year of Video Production is when students take on managerial roles and high-value projects and assignments. They manage employees, assignments and tasks, along with participating in recruiting efforts and other large scale projects.


Real-world knowledge is vital to the company

Creative Services

The Creative Services Department at GVTV works with the City of Henderson Police Department and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to record a program called Every 15 Minutes. Creative Services also creates advertisements, Senior Videos that play at graduation, and videos representing the school.


Technology Education

We offer hands on experience with software and equipment used in the real world. From editing software to creating sets, we believe in first hand experiences.


Using Social Media

Social Media is part of our world, like it or not. Harness the power of social media through effective marketing campaigns and informative posts.


Understand Corporate Culture

Many jobs are now part of a huge corporate structure. FST News at Foothill High School, GVTV at Green Valley High School and GVTV News work together to cover Southern Nevada. We work with our counterparts to ensure continuity of coverage and to share stories.
