ABOUT VIDEO PRODUCTION


 "In the United States, over 182 Million Internet users watch online video each day."


The goal of the Video Production Associate Degree Program is to teach students interested in a variety of Video Production careers ALL aspects of the production process – from concept creation through image capture, editing and distribution.  Students will learn a little bit of everything so that they can become autonomous Independent Video Professionals or enter into more directed pursuit of specific careers within Video Production (like Editing, Motion Graphics or Audio Production).

Because the majority of employment in Video Production is currently in short-form video production for the Internet, the goal of NTC’s Video Production Program is to prepare students to work in SHORT form multimedia rather than focusing on higher budget, long-form projects associated with Studio Production.  The Video Production Program prepares students for careers in an emerging local video industry by teaching professional video-making techniques and providing hands-on opportunities for students to produce professional, short-form projects that can be used in portfolios or video reels.
