General Program Information

Video production technicians use motion picture, TV, or video cameras to film a wide range of subjects. Whatever the setting, camera operators begin by observing the set to determine the filming requirements. They also consult with the director or technicians about lighting needs and desired effects. Operators then select the proper film and equipment. They set up the camera and accessories, such as special lenses. Video production technicians work as a team to edit material to develop a finished product.
