Reality-TV : A case study of SVT Gothenburg's Reality-production Hjärta för djur (English)
Abstract [en]

Media producer Mathias Ekberg has during the spring term worked at SVT Gothenburg. SVT Gothenburg will during this time, for the first time produce an in-house reality production, instead of buying shows from an external production company. The show is called Hjärta för djur (Heart for animals) and tells the story of people who devote their lives to helping animals who have been mistreated.The production is a pilot project and SVT Gothenburg has therefore asked Mathias Ekberg to analyze the workflow and systems that have been used during the production. Mathias Ekberg has taken part in the project as coordinator and logger, which has made it possible to have good insight on the production as a whole.In other words, the following report is a case study on how to produce a reality show from the first idea to the show being delivered. This report will for the most part cover the production phase since Mathias Ekberg will not be able to gather empirical data from the other parts of the production, though these parts have been complemented through interviews.The purpose of this report in to learn more about reality productions and also to review the workflow that SVT Gothenburg has used to produce Hjärta för djur and which benefits and drawbacks it generates.The result of this study is that the workflow is relatively price- and time effective. The recording was compressed to four weeks, which meant that the team on the spot had to direct the reality in order fit the timeframe. Whether or not this had a positive or negative effect on the content is left to the viewer, but from a production point of view; it was a necessity.Most parts of the production were active at the same time which resulted in good communication between the set, editors and the rest of the production.According to most coworkers this workflow should work in theory. In this case the workflow wasn’t followed to 100 percent since it was a pilot project. This resulted in bottlenecks at the contributing editor and loggers. The recommendation is to refine every part of the production and that the editors should possib
