NOVA Students Visited Alfa Television Station

As part of their media education in Macedonian language classes, 8th grade students were supposed to visit one TV station. For this purpose, we went to Alfa TV and were able to see the inner workings of a TV station. From how a live show is produced to how the news and and the station are run, we were backstage, talking to journalists, directors and other members of the crew. The most interesting place for the students was the digital studio where all programs are actually custom made – by cutting and pasting parts of "films", performed by a specialized editing software, all with the purpose of making a perfect TV show. The students realized how much effort, time and resources are needed even for something as "simple" as a single minute "on the air"! We truly enjoyed our visit!
