The TV Industry
Millions watch The Voice every week. Soap series air decennia long. On-demand TV makes you able to watch everything at any given moment. The TV industry is an interesting field full differences and also lots of innovations.
The blogs below are all based on the TV industry and how TV programs are made. Learn about the production: from ideas to filming and post-production. My main focus and experience are in the producing area as a producer, but other aspects may come by as well.
Every blog here I wrote from experience and (academic) research. I try to do adequate research before writing anything, so you know what you read is true.
Keep in mind however that the television industry is not the same all over the world. For instance, in some countries there are government-owned channels, some have only commercial channels, some are a mix. Also things like language and traditions can make the same TV format very different in other countries. Each country has its own methods and traditions. While I try to involve the differences, it’s impossible to account for all of them. My main focus will be on the UK, USA and a bit of the Netherlands.
