UW-Stout's new B.S. Video Production (VP) program will provide you with the skills necessary to pursue a career in rapidly-expanding fields related to the creation and presentation of video/media for non‐broadcast, online/multi‐channel media distribution such as social media, training, and education, and digital display content. We will teach you the technical knowledge and skills necessary to create finished still and video/media products, under the guidance of producers and directors.
The above video and four others highlight some of the great opportunities available to Stout students in the BS Video Production program. Every aspect of the videos—shots, scripting, interviews, b-roll and motion graphics—was completely generated by the students.
Our experienced faculty will introduce you to industry-standard software and hardware for digital image capture, editing, and compositing. Hands-on learning in the studio and on location emphasizes creative and critical thinking skills, principles of visual literacy, technical processes of video/media technologies, and the planning and management of video/media production.
"As a kid, I always loved movies, and going to UW-Stout has really helped me work towards making my own. Whether that be creative or commercial work, I feel that Stout can help you get there, especially with all the hands-on training. Best of all, you’ll make connections, which are the most important part of video production."
