    Hi there, my name is Luca and I’m currently studying to work in TV as a technician in France. I’m doing a 2 year course ( equivalent to an HND I think) and we are studying all the technical part of TV. In June, we have to do a 5 week internship in a TV studio, preferably in a control room and I was wondering if you could help me gather some info on how to do that internship in UK ? I will be happy to send my CV or explain more about myself and where I’m studying if you like. To be a bit more clear, here are a few examples of what we are studying : installing and operating cameras, CCU’s, mobile or fixed control rooms ( we have 3 based TriCaster, BlackMagic Design, and Indigo), digital video transmission, storage, up/down/ cross conversions, sampling, TV set lighting and recording.
    I’m British so I won’t need a Visa to stay in te UK.

    Hey Luca,

    I myself am a Vision Engineer & Technical director and work in exactly what you have said above, I have worked around the world on outside broadcasts and also in studios although I feel an outside broadcast company would be more beneficial for you. The reason being is that you have to rig the trucks for the specific jobs requirements. So for example if it’s a concert or a football match etc you’ll make sure you have enough camera channels, EVS, GFX etc rigged before the truck goes off. It’s an amazing way to learn the engineering of how to rig and how to set up the kit.

    I know we have some mentors on here who work for OB companies so I’ll see if I can give them a nudge but just for reference to have a look at their websites a few names are;

    Timeline Television
    CTV
    NEP
    EMG
    IMG
    Cloudbass
    Telegenic
    Procam
    Onebox
    Trickbox TV

    If you’d like to know anymore, just let me know.

    Hi James,
    I appreciate that.
    I’ve looked at all those websites this afternoon and sent emails to all of them, let’s hope I get an answer. My teacher knows somebody at EMG in London but he is finding difficulties to get in touch with.
    Would you have any personal emails you could give me to contact ?
    Thank you very much,
    Luca

    Hi Luca, How is everything going? Did you manage to sort a placement for the summer?

    I have a client who operates in both the Uk and France and are looking for new engineers so please let me know and I can put you in contact.

    Look forward to hearing from you.

    Hi guys,
    Sorry for the absence, I’ve started studying for my second year of my broadcasting degree. I’ve done my first year internship at Videlio as an assistant AV technician these last two months , and I was wondering if you guys could help me out for my second year internship coming up in January ? I would really love to do it in England at an OB company, I’m currently hoping to reach HR at NEP with the help of @Luke Westbury , but any other leads would be great; just in case..
    Thank you guys,
    Luca
