The Humanities Institute of Television and Radio Broadcasting (GITR)

Presentation & Philosophy:
The institute was created in 1994 by the television director and winner of the State Prize of Russia, Mikhail Litovchin.
GITR is a private, non-profit higher education institution, which is economically and politically independent from the Government with a state licence to teach and Government diplomas. The institute operates a Modular System of Certification. This allows students to build one course of study and qualification on top of the next, from diplomas right up to PhD level if they wish.
Dr Yuri Litovchin is Rector and Dr Valentin Lazutkin is President.
The purpose of the institute is to prepare students for all the creative skills they will need for a career in today’s television and radio. In fact, GITR is the ONLY institute in Moscow that teaches a full range of television and radio professions.
All faculties are run by professionals who have worked at the top of their field. Indeed, 70% of teaches still practice their broadcasting skills outside of the institute; so they keep up-to-date with the latest developments in the television and radio industry. Between 80% and 100% of students get jobs.

Programme objective and content:

  • Journalism and Screenplay faculty:
    The training in this faculty prepares students for work as scriptwriters and journalists in television or radio, newspapers, magazines, and so on. But they also learn how to write, shoot and edit news reports and features, short documentaries, talk shows and work in new media.
  • Directing Film, Television and Multimedia faculty:
    Through different projects and exercises, professors teach students to direct a range of programme types, including sports, news and analytical programmes, talk shows and other entertainment programmes, short documentaries, commercials, music videos and game shows. A new unit teaches students about live broadcast and multimedia directing as well.
  • Camera Operating for Film & TV faculty:
    Students learn the basics of photography, computer graphics and special effects as well as other theoretical disciplines. Finally, they are ready to work in all kinds of television productions and films. 41 Subjects include: writing, colouring, exposure, TV equipment, camera optics, photo composition, computer graphics, editing, special effects, etc.
  • Sound Engineering and Music Art faculty:
    The institute prefers to recruit students who have already got a basic musical education. Sound engineers need to have an analytical ear and excellent sense of rhythm. So, the teaching combines two elements: the technical and the creative.
    On the technical side, they learn about modern sound equipment and sound engineering technology. On the creative, they learn how to translate and create artistic images through the use of sound.
  • Management and Producing faculty:
    There are, of course, two different parts to the work of producing. The first is economics; the second, creative. So, students must learn the disciplines of both.
    That is to say, they learn how to recognise what ideas are commercial and then they learn how to get and manage the funding for the best of their projects, as well as to manage the people they will need to realise the projects.
    For all main projects each production team normally includes a director, journalist, sound engineer, camera operator and producer. They all work together on projects right from their first year through to the end including diploma projects, which are normally documentary films for television.
  • Stage and Multimedia Art faculty:
    There are three specialisms:

    • Stage Design for Theatre
    • Stage Design and Special Effects for Film and Television
    • Multimedia and Animation

    The students of this faculty have to learn how to apply all techniques needed for a television artist, from drawing, painting, composition, basic architecture, all the way though to computer generated images.
