Hands-On Learning

AWC's TV studio is a state-of-the-art, digital facility which trains students who are seeking a job in television, video production companies, and media-related fields. The program provides practical experience in the use of professional equipment in a digital television studio and editing training using industry-leading hardware and software.

Student Productions

AWC Television Production and Media Arts students have produced their own live, weekly, half-hour show on AWC TV. For the first seven seasons, it was known as 'AWC Spotlight', and received a Rocky Mountain Emmy Nomination in 2007.

In Spring 2010, the producers (aka students) decided to rename it The Dirty Thirty. (Visit the Dirty Thirty Facebook page here for info on the show, and clips from past episodes) In Spring 2011, the name was changed back to "Spotlight" again. The students are in charge; the staff of TV Services acts merely as guidance and tech support for their shows. The students plan the shows, host the shows, and serve as the technical crew for the shows, from running camera and audio right up to directing the show.
