  1. 1. Motion Picture and Video IndustriesOccupation Powerpoint<br />Kris Crouse<br />
  2. 2. Training and Education<br />Experience, talent, creativity, and professionalism usually are the most important factors in getting a job in graphic design. <br />In addition to colleges and technical schools, many independent centers offer training programs on various aspects of filmmaking, such as screenwriting, film editing, directing, and acting.<br />
  3. 3. Overall Earnings<br />$31.54 Hourly Wage<br />$1261.60 Per Week<br />$60,556.80 Per Year<br />All Earnings are a median number and do not show starting amounts or the maximum amount in which one could receive.<br />
  4. 4. Benefits<br />Summary:<br />Benefits are limited to those who work for smaller employers.<br />Larger Employers can offer benefits that include vacation and sick leave, health and life insurance, profit sharing, and pension plans.<br />Unions are very important in this industry. <br />
  5. 5. Expected Job Prospects<br />Opportunities will be better in some occupations than in others. Computer specialists, multimedia artists and animators, film and video editors, and others skilled in digital filming, editing, and computer-generated imaging should have the best job prospects. There also will be opportunities for broadcast and sound engineering technicians and other specialists, such as gaffers and set construction workers. In contrast, fierce competition can be expected for the more glamorous, high-paying jobs in the industry—writers, actors, producers, and directors—as applicants outnumber available jobs.<br />
  6. 6. Future Trends<br />Most motion pictures are still made on film. However, digital technology and computer-generated imaging are rapidly making inroads and are expected to transform the industry. Making changes to a picture is much easier using digital techniques. Backgrounds can be inserted after the actors perform on a sound stage, or locations can be digitally modified to reflect the script. Even actors can be created digitally. Independent filmmakers will continue to benefit from this technology, as reduced costs improve their ability to compete with the major studios.<br />
  7. 7. Daily Tasks<br />Unusual hours are normal in this industry, with 22 percent of workers having part-time schedules and 14 percent having variable schedules. In 2008, workers averaged 29.6 hours per week.<br />Depending on occupation one could be a writer, director, producer, etc.<br />
  8. 8. Working Conditions<br />Most individuals in this industry work in clean, comfortable surroundings. Filming outside the studio or on location, however, may require working in adverse weather, and under unpleasant and sometimes dangerous conditions. Actors, producers, directors, cinematographers, and camera operators also need stamina to withstand the heat of studio and stage lights, long and irregular hours, and travel.<br />Directors and producers often work under stress as they try to meet schedules, stay within budget, and resolve personnel and production problems. Writers and editors must deal with criticism and demands to restructure and rewrite their work many times until the producer and director are finally satisfied. All writers must be able to withstand such criticism and disappointment. <br />
  9. 9. Nature of the Work<br />Many entry-level workers start out by working on documentary, business, educational, industrial, or government films or in the music video industry. This kind of experience can lead to more advanced jobs.<br />
