Freelance Video Utility/Camera Operator
- Brooklyn, NY
As a video utility and camera assistant, I work as part of a crew responsible for the set up of all video and camera equipment prior to live broadcast. This includes the building of hand-held, pedestal, and Steadicam cameras, the running of fiber optic cable feeds, and the setup of any required video monitors for the entirety of the production crew.
Video utility/camera assistants are required to work in a fast-paced environment with the ability to trouble-shoot a wide range of video and camera issues, on the fly, within the limited time frame afforded by the live broadcast industry.
This degree prepared me for all facets of live broadcast, including segment producing, camera operation, and audio tech, along with the opportunity to direct a live broadcast to our college programming.
