Assignment Brief Write a technical report based upon a realistic production scenario. (2500 words) Scenario – Studio, Live Tx & Post Production A major UK broadcaster has commissioned us to deliver a series over 10 consecutive Saturday & Sunday evenings. The Saturday programme will see a celebrity matched with a professional singer and they have to sing live for viewers’ votes. There will be a stage in the studio for the performances as well seating for 3 judges and an audience. The series starts with 10 pairs, with 1 pair leaving the show each Sunday evening. Each Saturday episode will feature the celebrity/professional pair sing and then receive the judges’ opinions. The second presenter will also interview the contestants away from the main stage. Before each pair sings there will be an insert showing the highlights of their week in training. The Sunday show will be when one pairing is removed from the show when the viewers’ votes are revealed. This show will include highlights of the Saturday show together with behind the scene material.
