TV LAB and tour
For the 2017-2018 season, our workshops will take place in a brand new inspiring space, LAB46, with new studios and new equipment! To emphasize this, our workshops have a new name, TV LAB, Radio LAB and Digital LAB.
Location: Maison de Radio-Canada, Montreal
Level: Grade 6 through university; businesses, organizations, etc.
Capacity: Two classes/groups (no more than 30 people per group)
Time: Four hours (9 a.m.–1 p.m.; 1–5 p.m.; 5–9 p.m.)
2017-2018 Rate: $340 (taxes included) per group. Max. 30 people per group. Rates in effect until September 2, 2018.
In a studio specially designed for them, participants will be assigned a role (e.g., newsreader, reporter, camera operator, switcher, production assistant) and produce their own news program using a script provided to them. After the LAB, you will receive a link by email to download your recording.
This season, time and availability permitting, you will visit the Centre de l’information newsroom, one or more TV/Radio studios and the broadcasting booth.
There will be a 30-minute meal break between the tour and the LAB, beginning at around 11 a.m. for the 9 a.m.–1 p.m. group, at around 3 p.m. for the 1–5 p.m. group and at around 7 p.m. for the 5-9 p.m. group. Participants must bring a cold meal or a snack with them.
