Careers in Media & Entertainment

CAREERS IN MEDIA & ENTERTAINMENT gives students a chance to level up their skills and join the rapidly expanding world of digital filmmaking. More video content is being uploaded every 30 days than the three major television networks—combined—created in 30 years. Every analysis shows that web sites need video content to succeed, and the demand is greater than ever for content producers who understand how to consistently turn out high-quality media.

Our hands-on approach is reinforced by the idea that achieving a greater fluency in story structure and storytelling techniques offers the decisive edge that content creators require in order to compete. Student work is a mix of class assignments, self-selected projects and client jobs for area schools, organizations and non-profits. Documentary, PSA, advocacy and corporate video techniques are taught alongside fictional, genre and narrative filmmaking methods. Students acquire sufficient skills and knowledge either to seek employment in a range of audio and video production settings or to further their education in a clearly articulated pathway.

Students in the program may qualify for as many as 15 Walla Walla Community College credits.
