Overview — Prepare for a career in the fast-growing world of visual media content on-demand. Students will have real-world experiences through opportunities with Milwaukee PBS and working with other professionals in visual media programming.

The rapid convergence of digital video technologies and consumers’ desires to access visual media virtually everywhere are resulting in opportunities for businesses to distribute content in ways frequently re-imagined.


Students will develop the skills in electronic video content production and distribution needed by employers that rely on the internet, mobile, smartphones and other emerging interactive technologies to deliver their visual messages to customers.

Learn how to acquire, edit and recode media for multiple delivery options, from inception to distribution to utilization. Skill development will focus on quality production in a “prosumer” environment; emphasizing media message design, digital content management, and multiplatform avenues for delivery of the message.

 

Career Pathway — You can earn the TV/Video Field Production Assistant technical diploma on the way to completing this associate degree. Contact an MATC advisor for information.



Career Outlook — Research indicates that fewer individuals rely solely on their televisions for video entertainment and other programming, and content on-demand means that media must be made available more broadly, easily and personally.

Typical job duties include concept development, audio and video acquisition and editing, data and asset management, multimedia and video design, and program delivery methods.

Successful employment requires strong visualization skills and an acute imagination, as well as computer, math and communication skills.

 

Program Learning Outcomes — Employers will expect graduates to:

• Demonstrate acute creative skills with regard to video and eproduction

• Demonstrate strong visualization skills with regard to a multitude of media delivery methods

• Understand/demonstrate practice of thorough concept development and media creation

• Use research to implement creative project strategies and applications

• Execute design/project solutions using principles of design, television/video and multimedia

• Prepare final design concepts for correct digital application

• Appropriately use computer design hardware and software, including nonlinear editing platforms and
                other visual media tools
