How to Prepare for a Successful Career in Video Production

This is In Focus, by MarketScale. A podcast by video professionals for video professionals, putting in focus the topics, teachers and tips guiding the video industry today. With your host, MarketScale’s Sr. Director of Video Production, Josh Brummett.

 

The job market is constantly changing, and the job qualifications that would have been sufficient five or 10 years ago may not necessarily be sufficient today. Many professionals still debate whether or not a degree in video production is necessary to get started in the industry.

But is this true today? What does someone need to get their foot in the door with the company of their dreams?

In this episode of In Focus, Josh Brummet meets with two of MarketScale’s most recent hires in the video production department, Michael Boyer and Alex LeBlanc, to discuss how to get started in video production today.

Michael Boyer is MarketScale’s live broadcast creative producer, with a degree in Convergence Journalism from The University of Missouri. Meanwhile, video production specialist Alex LeBlanc has a degree in Advertising and another in Electronic Media & Communication, both from Texas Tech University.

Both of them believed that, while going to school for video production isn’t obligatory, educational institutions offer certain benefits that a do-it-yourself producer wouldn’t have. “What you don’t get outside of school is the connections you build while attending university,” said LeBlanc.

“Every group is kind of a group project, and you can’t do anything by yourself,” added Boyer. “Learning from people that were better than me helped me to become better too.”

But for those who don’t plan on attending college, what’s the best way to learn?

“You learn by doing things,” said Boyer. By replicating what other people are doing and pushing ideas to their fullest, anyone can get better at their craft. “Even if you fall terribly short, you’ll still learn something valuable.”
