Video production is a business and must be operated with professional standards at all times. This course will prepare students to succeed occupationally in the video production industry. You, or the company you work for will provide a variety of custom video production services. Your services must reflect the specifications of each client or assignment. Each video is a custom product and therefore has its own unique set of criterions. Therefore, you also provide consultant services as you guide your client or supervisor through the process of determining the best-fit video for their needs. All of these considerations are addressed in this course. Students will explore effective business practices designed to gain and retain clients or employment. Business accounting procedures designed to keep a business legal and solvent will be identified. Marketing techniques designed for maintaining and expanding a business or career are investigated. Participants will create samples of work used for portfolios and distribution on social media platforms. Resumes, cover letters and business plans will be included in this curriculum.
