Projects, Ranking, and Delegation

The TritonTV Chain of Command goes like this:

Station Manager -> Executive Producer -> EIT* -> Producer -> Staff -> Intern -> Member

The higher up you go on the chain, the more responsibilities you will have.This structure also applies to project delegation.

In TritonTV, there are two types of projects:

Client Projects – A student or local organization has asked us to produce a video for them. This project will either be open to volunteers or it will be assigned to an Executive Producer, who will then choose to either head the project him/herself or pass it further down the ladder.
Personal Projects – A Producer within TritonTV wants to produce a video from TritonTV resources. Personal projects must be approved by an Executive Producer before production may begin.

Some other differences between ranks…

Members ranked Producer or higher may have their own doorcode assigned to them. Members ranked Staff or below are NOT to possess a doorcode at any time.

Station Managers, Executive Producers, and Producers may head Personal Projects. Producers MUST have a personal project approved by an Executive Producer before he or she may begin production. Staff or lower may not produce personal projects.

Interns and members may offer their assistance on any TritonTV project, client or personal, on a purely voluntary basis.

Staff and higher are required to attend General Body Meetings Wednesdays at 8pm during even weeks in the PC West Marshall Room. Missed attendance will be penalized. Interns and members may attend these meetings and are encouraged to do so, especially if they want to get any hands-on experience.

Executive Producers are required to attend Eboard meetings Wednesdays at 8pm during odd weeks in the TTV Studio. Staff or higher may attend Eboard Meetings but it is not required.

Members may request assistance in producing a video, but may not produce one themselves.

*EIT‘s, or Executives in Training, do not outrank Producers. An EIT is a Producer who is undergoing a quarter of training to become an Executive. To become an EIT, a Producer must:

  • maintain Producership for at least two quarters
  • finish in the top 30% of Triton Tallies
  • express interest in becoming an EIT to either Station Manager
