The Video & Motion Graphics program is designed to prepare students for entry-level employment in video and broadcast production. Some job categories in this field include video editors, production assistants, master control operators, videographers, and freelance new media developers.  To prepare for these jobs, students enrolled in the Video & Motion Graphics program learn to use industry-standard software applications such as Avid®, Adobe Premiere®, Adobe Photoshop®, Adobe After Effects®, Cinema 4D while using Macintosh® and Windows® operating systems.  For production work, students learn to use a variety of hardware including light kits, HD broadcast video cameras, DSLR cameras, jib arms, a variety of microphones and grip gear equipment. In addition to production skills, the Video & Motion Graphics program introduces students to nontechnical aspects of the media business and breaking trends in the motion graphics and video industries. In addition to attendance in all courses, students will be required to complete out-of-class assignments. These assignments include but are not limited to reading, exercises and problem solving, projects, research, papers, and presentations. A student can anticipate out-of-class activities that equal about two (2) hours for every one (1) hour of lecture. Upon successful completion of the program (see graduation requirements section of the catalog), students could seek or obtain entry-level employment in video and motion graphic related positions.
