QPIX’s GEN TV program industrially prepares graduates so they can be considered for uptake into the networks and television production companies. However, because employment or service Contracts are always tough to secure, QPIX also provides its students with the foundations for becoming motivated, self-starting entrepreneurs, through delivering a selection of business-focused Units within the Course. (Course Outline)
One of the many critically valuable features of QPIX training is the fact that students are provided with budgets for some of their productions. In other words, some of their investment in GEN TV comes back to them in their budgets. The budgets for those productions are designed to teach students the disciplines and advantages of managing those limited budgets.
This ensures they begin learning how to make cost-controlled, quality, home-grown product that will work for current markets, which in turn will lead them as graduates to have the capacity to make that product while providing a margin for themselves as competitive screen professionals and entrepreneurs.
The traditional production component of this amazing course is planned to consist of 7 half-hour episodes in a magazine-style television show format. Samples of similar a magazine-style productions include, Coast-to-Coast, Getaway and The Great South East.
However, GEN TV takes that style and approach much, much further by simultaneously developing and producing that plus additional purpose-made product for web, iPad and mobile distribution, and more!
The fundamental Show design will be provided to the students once they are enrolled, but will essentially remain secret until then, and then also kept from the general public throughout the course. All students will sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement prior to starting the course in order to prevent premature exposure of the Show detail to the media and social media sites, which in turn would compromise its marketability. Though the students will be led by certain key creative outline documents provided by the QPIX Executive Production team, they will also have an opportunity to contribute ideas and concepts as the show develops.
Students will be exposed to parts of the process of the QPIX Executive Production Team taking the Show forward to broadcasters and other investors. The Show may attract a broadcaster prior to completion of the show and the course, but there can be no guarantees. It will however be built to industry standards.
