So how does a major in Film or Video Production help you in career?
The most important thing would probably be the contacts that you make within the industry; this is again dependent on what college /school you go to study music production.
It also gives you the confidence required to continue in the industry. This is important because a lot of people might try to dissuade you by saying that this field of work is overcrowded and the paychecks are not guaranteed and so on.
But then just because someone cannot see a realistic career option in film / video production doesn’t mean that you take up an entirely different career, just for the sake of regular paychecks. If you want that then you need to take up a full time job.
But what if you’re a creative person who is good at visualizing concepts & ideas? In that case it definitely makes sense to do what you enjoy. With video being used in all sorts of marketing – both online and offline, there would always be work for you, maybe as a freelancer.
A major in Film or Video Production will prepare you to communicate dramatic information, ideas, moods, and feelings by making films and videos.
You can always find work as producers, film and video editors, camera operators, talent directors & managers, besides working as directors for pictures, television, and even radio.
So if you have been thinking of going to school/college to learn video/film production you need to do some due diligence around how much is the cost and what you would expect in return. But if you’re thinking of doing a major in film or video production, it can definitely help you get that push in your career.
