The department of cinema/television/radio will host its second annual open house next Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Studios building. Featured will be a behind-the-scenes view of how film and television shows are created as well as live DJs broadcasting on the college radio station, KSBR 88.5.
The communication arts program, led by department chair Charlie Myers, offers students hands-on experience and encourages both field and studio work to prepare for work in the media industry.
KSBR’s primary format is contemporary jazz, but it also has weekend specialty shows featuring other musical styles like reggae, folk, ragtime, rock, Latin jazz, blues, and hip-hop music. OCRockRadio.com features a mix of alternative and indie music designed to provide students with the experience they need to get jobs at high-energy rock and pop stations.
Saddleback College TV (SCTV) Channel 39 is the campus’s television station. Students have the opportunity to produce on-air programming after courses in production and editing.
Film students script, shoot and edit their own work creating packages in a real-world setting. In previous years, some films have received accolades at the Newport Beach Film Festival.
Parking in Lots 4A and 7 is free for this event. The Studios building is located across from the gymnasium and adjacent to the Village. A map is available online. Further information about the department is also available on the Saddleback website.
