This workshop is all about building shows that take off like a rocket and never let off the gas. We train your team new ways to build excitement and the best ways to move viewers through the entire program moment by moment.
This workshop is full of best practices for creating exciting show opens, even on slow news days. We’ll dissect the top of your newscasts then show the producers how to reassemble the elements so they entice viewers to find out more. If your shows lack energy and drive, this is the workshop for you.
We’ll show them how use unconventional elements to drive pacing, how to create multiple lead stories, and how to break a lead into a series of smaller stories that showcase live elements and wide coverage.
They’ll learn how to drive pacing using multiple reporters and anchors, how to use graphic elements to break down complicated stories, and the telltale signs of an overproduced show.
After doing hundreds of producer workshops over the years, we’ve found there are seven audience-losing bad habits that producers tend to make over and over again. Your team will also learn to recognize and avoid these show killers. We’ll show them new ways to break out of old producing habits and add a palpable sense of anticipation to their shows.
