What is CP Broadcast Technology?
CP Broadcast Technology is a 2 year program that is designed to teach 11th and 12th grade students how to make professional-level videos. We will explore how cameras and editing are used to tell stories in a variety of ways. Both creativity and technical skill will be combined to produce videos that capture the attention of audiences to entertain and inform them.
