Cooperation and participation in the television
Originality of the TV project “Aina” consists in
joint work of the creative team of Internews Kazakhstan,
non-government stations in regions of Kazakhstan and independent
Internews Kazakhstan for its part assists to
regional stations in production of video stories. We send videotapes
for shooting and editing when necessary. If a station does not have
an opportunity to do quality editing, initial video material along
with scenario script and decoding are sent to Internews Kazakhstan.
In this case we edit it ourselves. If a station does not have an
opportunity to produce video story in Kazakh language, it sends us
Russian version of a text. We translate it ourselves.
Apart from shooting and editing of personal video
stories, editing of the TV magazine, “Internews” coordinates
preparation of stories on local stations and provides independent
authors with an opportunity to shoot and edit a story. It is
supposed that in the near future non-state stations and participants
of the joint project will prepare almost all of the program stories.
Wouldn’t you agree that today it is hard to find a
TV company, which can provide you with an opportunity to shoot a
high-quality documentary. And it is unlikely that you will be able
to receive professional consultations in the process of preparation
to shooting, during shouting, writing of a script and editing, at
some other place than Internews Kazakhstan.
In order to get an opportunity to shoot and edit a
story, the authors (employees of television companies, as well as
independent authors) need to present the topic for their future
story in the form of scenario script plan. The script has to include
1) A problem or an issue of a story.
2) Available information on this topic.
3) Supposed points of views and opinions on the given topic (interview-comments).
4) Supposed character, whose portrait will help to disclose a
conflict, problem, answer the story’s question more clearly.
5) Supposed strong video.
Mandatory condition of cooperation is the constant
contact between story’s authors and producer of “Aina” program. The
best contact method is e-mail, due to which there is an opportunity
for quick delivery of story texts to, as well as reviews and
recommendations of producer.
After approving a topic for production, an author,
in accordance with confirmed work schedule, receives an opportunity
to shoot and edit. Highly qualified cameramen from Internews
Kazakhstan carry out the video shooting on digital equipment of DV
CAM format. Editing is carried out on non-linear editing systems.
Each video story broadcasted in “Aina” program is
paid in accordance with the fee schedule.
Cooperation between a station and Internews is
documented by an agreement. According to the agreement Internews
takes on responsibility to produce the program and send it to a
station in proper time. A station takes on responsibilities: to show
the program during approved time, provide all conditions for
preparation of stories on this station and to send them for program
editing in time.
Equipment of S-VHS, DV, DVCAM and BETACAM formats is used in the
production process of the television magazine. Editing of video
stories and programs is carried out on computer station of
non-linear editing. The program is distributed on S-VHS or VHS, DV,
DVCAM, BETACAM and SP tapes for stations’ convenience.
