College offers degree in video production

September 05, 2004

Students can enroll this fall in a new associate's degree program at Cecil Community College that will help prepare them for careers in television, film or commercial video production.

The Associate of Applied Science - Visual Communications: Video Production Option is tailored for students who are interested in a career in video production and want to get familiar with industry-standard equipment and software.

Kristi Eisenberg, director of the visual communications program at the school in North East, said the degree is one that she and the faculty had been thinking about for years.

"We have a number of students who take as many video courses as possible and then get video jobs at companies such as ATK and Edgewood Arsenal, so it makes sense to have a more formal degree program," she said.

The video production option provides career education in television, film, documentary, industry and commercial video production. Hands-on classes familiarize students with the equipment and software that is used in the industry. Students learn to produce documentaries, commercials, news programs, dramas and instructional videos. New courses that will be part of the degree program include Scriptwriting and Acting for Video Production.
