Published 9:13 am Friday, September 14, 2018

During the month of October, Southeast Kentucky Community and Technical College (SKCTC) and Selling to the World will offer free workshops on the SKCTC Middlesboro and Whitesburg campuses: “Behind the Scenes with Kentucky Educational Television.”

According to Selling to the World Director Jeannie Allen, “This is a great opportunity for our students and for people in the community. Whether they are interested in a career in video production, have questions, or are just curious about how the pros do it, this workshop will have lots of great information.”

Video production is a field that can potentially open up various opportunities for those interested in pursuing that path. For those who aren’t opposed to a commute, Knoxville is home to various production facilities and such as Jewelry TV and The Travel Channel, which has its headquarters in Knoxville.

Generallly speaking, a career in video production can branch off into many avenues such as becoming a lighting technician, an editor, program researcher and even a web content manager.

The workshop will cover topics such as careers in production; basic camera, lighting, and sound techniques; and green screen use.

Middlesboro’s event will be held 5:30-7:00 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 2 in the Troy Welch Allied Science Building Room 217. Whitesburg’s will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 23 in the Belinda Mason Building, Room 122.
