The Department of Telecommunications will produce IU Men’s Basketball Coach’s television program, The Tom Crean Show. The show will air on the BIG TEN NETWORK eight times over the course of the Men’s Basketball Schedule.  Beyond this, students who enroll in the course will produce other IU sports programs designed to air on local and regional cable systems.

Students will have the opportunity to fill the following positions:

  1. Studio Crew Members

  • Team Two (2 students – Camera/Audio-Lighting)

The Tom Crean Show will be recorded on Monday nights, starting late this semester: 12/5, 12/12, 1/9, 1/23, 1/30, 2/6, 2/13, and 2/20.  Crew call is 6:00 p.m. and anticipated wrap time is 9:30 p.m. for the studio crew.  Segment production teams will be assigned to duties throughout each week not to exceed 3 ½ hours of class time.  Post production teams must be available on Tuesdays and assure delivery of a finished show by 6:00 p.m. for delivery to the BIG TEN NETWORK via satellite feed.

The show producer is Jo Throckmorton (The Kevin Wilson Show, The Joby Wright Show, WCPO-TV broadcast director).  If you’re interested, send Jo a note today (rjthock@indiana.edu<mailto:rjthrock@indiana.edu>) along with your resume, including TC course experiences, and he’ll contact you.  With his permission, you’ll be able to enroll in T436 (section  32714) for up to 3 credits.  Each member of the team will be provided a high-definition ProRes 422 MOV of each show for inclusion in their portfolio.

This is a great opportunity for us to show what we can do – and for you to get experience working on a program that airs nationally.
