VOLUNTEER FOR FIELD PRODUCTIONS OR EDITING
You may also choose to be a volunteer videographer
in the field and or an editor.
We get lots of calls
from local organizations who would love to get an event
taped, such as a guest speaker or a panel discussion. There are also studio producers
who would like to get some footage from a specific location to include in their
studio discussion. Those who request a volunteer cover the costs of tapes and
equipment lending. Usually the volunteer picks up and returns the equipment.
Editors are always in high demand. There are plenty
of beginning editors who could use some mentoring.
There are also videographers who tape something in
the field, but don’t know how to put opening titles or closing credits
onto the tape. Others would like to cut something down to a shorter piece.
taking the appropriate classes, you would become listed as a potential volunteer
that Media Center staff or studio producers might call with a request.
You can always say no if you are busy or the topic doesn’t interest you.
