A group of Georgia Southern University students has had a unique opportunity this summer to create something that will help them step out of the classroom and into their futures — and it’s all because of a television pilot course.
Taught by Film and Production lecturer Tyson Davis, the course is only in its second year, and it’s Davis’ first time teaching it. The course allows students to get hands-on experience in all facets of the production of a television pilot. Students in the course worked with members of Stagecraft and Senior Project classes, who made their contributions during the spring semester.
“The way the class collaborates with others, it’s really a specialty class that needs to be offered in the summer so that the other classes can do their parts before the summer class ever begins,” said Davis. “Really, a television pilot class over nine weeks is, if you don’t have help, it’s not going to work.” See more here.
