    This three-term certificate program trains students in both single camera-film style and in multi-camera studio production practices. Students develop stories from production plans, treatment and scripts to build narrative sequences. Students use the Adobe Creative Cloud software applications (Audition, Premiere, Dreamweaver) to prepare digital video files for broadcast and online distribution.

    Most employment options exist in freelancing, assisting and short-term contracting, and in seasonal markets such as sporting events, television series and films.

    Students can continue on into a second year to earn an AAS in Integrated Media: Video where students develop more advanced skills, acquire digital video experience and work on assignments that demand complex problem-solving and collaboration skills.
