The on-camera workshop takes place in front of the TV cameras in LI's Norma Zimdahl Master Studio in the Sacher Multimedia Center.
You'll be coached through two rounds of mock interviews (one-on-one at a news desk and satellite) while receiving personalized critiques and feedback on how to better tailor your message for TV.
Individuals who attend the on-camera workshop receive footage of their performance. Class size is limited to maximize your time on camera.
