Video Production Colleges

You can pursue training in video production.

Also referred to as videography, video production is the practice of videotaping, editing and distributing video content in a variety of contexts, including television, film and the internet. Although the entertainment industry is notoriously competitive, the U.S. Bureau of Labor finds that the demand for well-trained television, video and motion picture camera operators and editors will increase by at least 11 percent through to 2018. Several colleges in the United States offer top-quality training in video production that prepares graduates to pursue employment in this dynamic field.
