• Integrated Media: Video Curriculum


  • Associate of Applied Science Degree Program

    Catalog Year 2018-2019

    Integrated Media’s Video program offers a comprehensive aesthetic and technical foundation in all aspects of narrative and documentary digital film-making by balancing theory with hands-on production classes. A sequence of team-based production classes which include collaboration with students from other integrated media disciplines, offers multiple opportunities to explore narrative, documentary, commercial, industrial and music video formats.

    Graduates work in a wide range of industry production and post- production positions. Entry-level jobs include camera assistant, digital image tech (DIT), grip, gaffer, boom operator, production assistant and assistant editor. There are many broadcast stations, mobile sports and independent production companies working in the Pacific Northwest. These companies provide valuable credited internship opportunities for our students and employment opportunities for our graduates.

    MHCC’s facilities feature professional production studios, high-definition equipment and Mac-based editing and audio labs.

    *REQUIRED EQUIPMENT: Students accepted into the Video option will need to own open or semi-open back headphones. ($80 - $150 for a professional-level model)
