Employment Opportunities Banner

Most of our students begin working professionally while they are still in school. They find work on film, television and commercial sets as production assistants and in art, camera and grip and electric departments. Many students work full-time on film sets during the summer. Other students find part-time work during the school year as editors and assistants in production companies and post-production houses. Upon graduating our students continue to work on sets as freelance film production professionals. Others find work as video specialists for corporations. Most remain in Utah and build the growing film industry here, but others travel to Los Angeles and to other media centers to work for studios and production companies outside the state. Our research has shown that 85% of our graduates find work in the film and media industry within six months of graduation.
