School Video News

Started as a quarterly, regional newsletter, School Video News has grown in popularity and content since its inception. Originally published as a four page product oriented newsletter featuring recommendations and a single case study, SVN has expanded coverage to include articles on all aspects of K-12 video production: lighting and audio, set construction/design tips, editing, increasing production values, case studies, projects and profiles of other schools. In addition to technical articles by industry professionals, there are product reviews, student projects, event coverage, and industry/academic news as they relate to TV/Video production. SVN is now the definitive resource for teachers and administrators of TV/Video, Film Production and Broadcast Journalism in the K-12 and Post-secondary academic markets.

SVN Media Skills

In many schools teachers who, with little or no TV production experience or training, are being put in the role of creating not just a curriculum, but in some cases an entire production facility. The primary goal is to give instructors the resources which will  expose, train and nurture an on-going technical competence and understanding in those students that demonstrate an aptitude and interest in TV production as a possible career after graduation.
