Testimonials from past CTPR-409 Students:
Working with Trojan Vision has certainly been one of the best highlights of my time here at USC so far! I have been able to meet certain icons of mine such as Michael Giacchino who scored all of Lost, Phil Rosenthal, the creator of Everybody Loves Raymond, and Bill Lawrence, the creator of Scrubs. In addition to this I have made friends with numerous people who by being around them make Trojan Vision anything but work or a class.
- Tyler Ringer, Class of 2014, Critical Studies & Italian
In just one short year involved with the station, I’ve been completely blown away by the simultaneous presence of professionalism, a sense of family and unity, and downright fun. However, I wouldn’t have even been able to come to that realization if I didn’t take CTPR-409 first. Because of its dive-right-in, hands-on approach, this class was the door that opened up the unbelievable opportunities that have come to define my college experience.
– Kyle Bellar, Class of 2015, Writing for Screen and Television
This is easily the most exciting class you will ever take. There is no other class at USC that lets you learn in such a hands-on fashion from your peers–and what better medium in which to learn than live TV? Through CTPR-409, you will experiment, you will improvise, and you will be an integral part of a product that you will all be proud of…and the skills you learn will be invaluable for whatever career path you choose.
