There are jobs in television production!
In part one of this 2-part video series I discussed job openings that are available to anyone interested in a career in the video and television production business.
Today I will discuss even more of the options available to you and where you can find them.
I love editing. Telling a story visually has become easier with the advancements in technology. You can try out editing software from many companies for free. As a result, Apple’s Final Cut Pro will usually offer a trial period.
Does the title editor appeal to you? Video editing is one specialty that is constantly improving. Editing software companies just keep putting out better and more efficient products. This is made possible with computer technology steadily improving. And having lightning fast processing speeds.
Start thinking about how you would tell a story with video. If you enjoy story-telling through the use of images maybe an editing job would be perfect for you.
There are new types of cameras that are widely in use in television production today that were rarely used years ago. As a result of cheaper prices, I keep buying smaller cameras.
The same is true about microphones. Same wireless mics are constantly in use.
I don’t worry if I’m without my production gear. I just pull out my cell phone for audio or video recording and problem solved!
Miniaturization of electronic components has led to new video gear like GoPro cameras and Polecam cameras. Also included in this list of cameras that are now available to camera operators are robotic cameras.
Sports and entertainment television now use robotic cameras more than ever. They have been around for years in the field of security surveillance because of their size. And now broadcasting has embraced them too. These cameras can be placed right in the thick of the action without getting in the way of the athletes and performers.
As these new cameras come to market the industry is always looking for good people to operate them. Keep these points in mind when looking for jobs in television production.
