Videography Production A.A.S. Degree

Videography Production A.A.S. Degree

Program Description

Central Lakes College Videography is designed to simulate the experience of an actual production environment. Students produce authentic videos for actual clients who are in pursuit of video content. The curriculum has an emphasis on learning in a lab-based environment. We believe learning is enhanced by frequent repetition of basic filmmaking procedures. That’s why students at CLC write, shoot and edit content every week, using the latest technology in equipment and software. Our goal is simple: prepare students for entry-level careers in media – which includes television, filmmaking, corporate communications, webcasting and social media content.

Program Outcomes

By completing this program, students will achieve the following learning outcomes:

  • Apply protocol and safety in video production working environments;
  • Recognize and apply knowledge in script writing, camera operation, sound recording, editing, and production design for video applications;
  • Utilize video production equipment and software programs used in videography applications and creating special effects;
  • Analyze and apply appropriate lighting techniques for motion picture programming; and
  • Encode video files for distribution to broadcast, web, and digital recording.

Career Opportunities

Nationally and regionally, the industry is in a dramatic growth period with the explosion of internet and mobile delivery options. Organizations are increasingly turning to web-based video conferencing for corporate communications. Video content has become the de facto form of communication in business. According to Minnesota State CAREERwise, the outlook for editors, producers, directors, graphic designers and social media directors is for high growth between 2016 & 2026. Our focused approach to hands-on learning at Central Lakes College ensures graduates will be positioned appropriately for successful entry into the industry.
