Live stream production by students for the Tigers Tübingen

Since the beginning of the 2019/2020 season, students of the Sports Science Bachelor program with focus on Media and Communication are responsible for the live stream of the basketball second division team Tigers Tübingen.

Supervised by Michael Bollenbacher (SWR) and Dr. Verena Burk (responsible for the study program) students started to learn how to use the camera. Moreover, they were introduced to the picture direction and practiced live commentary and interviewing in two seminars. Since then, students act in different roles (camera, director, field reporter, co-commentator) and produce the live stream for the platform Airtango during each home game of the Tigers Tübingen. The students gain valuable insights into the professional production of a live stream, they have the opportunity to gain practical experience and to make work samples for their further professional life.
