ONE MAN PRODUCTION -- INSTRUCTOR, TWO CAMERAS, AND CAMERAMAN PRODUCE BETTER ITV.
BRETZ, RUDY
A NEW METHOD FOR EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION UTILIZES TWO CAMERAS AND ONE CREW MEMBER. A STUDIO-TYPE CAMERA, EQUIPPED WITH AN ELECTRONIC VIEWFINDER, FOCUS KNOB, FLEXIBLE THREE-CASTOR DOLLY, AND ZOOM LENS, FOLLOWS THE INSTRUCTOR AND COVERS HIS ACTIONS AND DEMONSTRATIONS. A SECOND CAMERA IS FIXED AND UNATTENDED. IT IS A SMALL INDUSTRIAL TYPE CAMERA WITHOUT VIEWFINDER OR FOCUS CONTROLS. THIS CAMERA IS POSITIONED DIRECTLY ABOVE THE INSTRUCTOR'S PODIUM OR DEMONSTRATION TABLE. ITS VALUE CONSISTS OF ITS ABILITY TO COMBINE ALL THE FUNCTIONS OF OTHER VISUAL AIDS. THE INSTRUCTOR CAN USE PHOTOGRAPHS OR ANY OTHER GRAPHIC MATERIALS. HE CAN WRITE AND DRAW IN NORMAL WRITING AND DRAWING SIZE ON A CONVENIENT HORIZONTAL SURFACE IN FRONT OF HIM. HE CAN SHOW OBJECTS AND MANIPULATE CUTOUTS IN THE FASHION OF THE FLANNELBOARD. HE DOES NOT HAVE TO MAKE SLIDES OR PREPARE VISUALS IN ANY PARTICULAR SIZE FOR THE TELEVISION CAMERA. A LARGE PICTURE CAN BE SHOWN IN ITS ENTIRELY AND THEN THE ZOOM CAMERA CAN PICK UP ITS DETAILS. THE CAMERMAN HANDLES ALL THE FUNCTIONS OF AUDIO AND VIDEO OPERATION HE MAKES SURE THAT WHATEVER THE INSTRUCTOR SHOWS, SAYS, AND DOES IS CLEARLY PERCEPTIBLE TO THE VIEWER. NO STUDIO OR CONTROL ROOM IS REQUIRED, SINCE ALL CONTROLS ARE IN THE ROOM NO REHEARSALS OR ADDITIONAL STUDIO LIGHTING ARE NECESSARY. EQUIPMENT COSTS RANGE FROM $5,130 TO $13,935. SINCE A VARIETY OF EQUIPMENT IS ADAPTABLE FOR THIS PROGRAM, THE TOTAL COST SHOULD FALL CLOSER TO THE MINIMUM AMOUNT.
