Leeds Trinity University welcomes Screen Yorkshire to deliver TV Production masterclass

SkillsWorld LIVE is back

Leeds Trinity University (@LeedsTrinity) recently welcomed Screen Yorkshire to deliver a masterclass for students in Television Production as part of its Connected Campus initiative.

Former Leeds Trinity University lecturer Glyn Middleton, Head of Skills and Industry Engagement at Screen Yorkshire, and Leeds Trinity alumni Charlie Wainwright, Assistant Producer at Air TV, delivered a masterclass on Finding and casting contributors in factual television.

The masterclass used real-life programming examples to introduce Level 4, 5 and 6 students to the fundamentals of sourcing great contributors and cast members for a host of television shows. The masterclass was designed specifically to help television students learn the key skill of locating and choosing the best-quality contributors for factual TV shows.

Students received expert advice and insights on sourcing and casting for a range of factual television shows, to enhance their skills in both development and production roles and maximise their knowledge for securing jobs.

Richard Greatrex, Senior Lecturer in Television Production at Leeds Trinity University, said:

“This was an amazing opportunity for students to learn first-hand from industry professionals the key skill of locating and choosing the best-quality contributors for factual TV shows, which will not only help to further strengthen the work they produce, but also provide them with vital knowledge when entering the industry.”
