My tales of a TFTI student – exploring the TV facilities

Hi, I’m Vlad! I’m in my second year studying Film and Television Production at the University of York. What I love most about the course is just how creative and inventive everything is, not just the content of the lectures, but also the teaching methods themselves. Studying in the Department of Film, TV and Interactive Media (TFTI) can be both challenging and rewarding – often at the same time! In this blog I will tell you about the TV facilities here at York and my experience with them across a variety of roles. I will also share some useful tips about working in the studios and a few anecdotes about the ingenious ways we were taught certain skills. The studio sessions were the highlight of my week and I hope you’ll share my excitement when you begin your courses!
