Film Production Career Opportunities

The film production major prepares students for a wide variety of careers in film and video production and for additional academic coursework in graduate school. Students may pursue career paths in camera, sound, and lighting, such as camera operator, assistant camera, director of photography, grip, sound mixer, best boy, gaffer, and others. Post-production careers include work as an assistant editor, colorist, editor, compositor, sound designer, and visual effects editor.
