Film and Television Producers

Exploring This Job

There are many ways to gain experience in filmmaking or television production. Some high schools have film and video clubs, for example, or courses on the use of motion picture equipment. Experience in high school or college theater can also be useful. One of the best ways to get experience is to volunteer for a student or low-budget film project; positions on such projects are often advertised in local trade publications. Community cable stations also hire volunteers and may even offer internships. To meet professionals in the field, ask your media department teacher or school counselor to arrange for a producer from a local TV station to come talk to interested students. Another option is to call a local TV station and request a tour of the facility.
