Creative Media Production (CMP) students learn to be professional storytellers using digital media through hands-on learning and real-world experiences. At one of the most state-of-the-art facilities in the nation, OU CMP students can focus their study with one or more of seven tracks: Audio Production, Corporate and Commercial Production, Documentary, Electronic Filmmaking, Video Production, Writing, or Interactive Multimedia. Students produce their work in one of Gaylord's four studios, 14 editing suites, nearly 150 editing stations, two control rooms, two radio stations, or the multi-track audio station. Students are equipped to go on location with more than two-dozen cameras to create their own work. Screenings of student films are held in the new 185-seat Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation auditorium.
CMP students have the opportunity to work for the student-produced television station, TV4OU, producing shows such as the OU Nightly newscast, sports and magazine shows and major music productions. In addition, students work on major independent projects such as films, documentaries with Gaylord Hall Productions and commercial productions or on special projects like ESPNU's Campus Connection.
Students wishing to work in radio can get hands on experience at two on-campus stations, The Wire and KGOU. Students may also work with the athletic department's high-definition production unit, SoonerVision.
