Film & Media Production
As a Film & Media Production major, you’ll have lots of opportunities to take your skills further, round out your resume and have fun.
Our internal production team produces chapels three times a week from our television control room, shoots live events and produces client projects on contract. Volunteer to help out as a freshman.
Envision Film Festival
Envision is the chance to screen and award our students’ best work and bring Hollywood professionals to campus for free workshops. Sign up to visit Taylor during March for Envision. For more information, see the Envision website.
Red Eye 24-Hour Film Festival
Grab some friends and get ready for the most fun sleepless night you’ve ever had. The 24-Hour Film Festival happens in January. Shoot a short film overnight and screen it the next day.
Faculty-Mentored Student Scholarship
Spend eight paid weeks in the summer working directly with a faculty member on a video project. For instance, Professor Steve Bailey worked with senior student Austin Yoder on the documentary series “Driving Indiana.” One shoot included this 1930 L-29 Cord.
Taylor’s award-winning newspaper and online publication offer volunteer and paid opportunities to take photos and shoot news packages. If you’re a strong writer or designer, consider applying to join the staff who produce The Echo.
Taylor’s online radio station, WTUR, hosts live programming during the school year, hosted by Taylor student volunteers. Be a DJ, create your own original show (talk, sports, music) or join the paid staff.
Taylor’s athletic teams often need videographers to cover sports events and editors to capture highlights for team review. Contact the team coaches to offer your services.
Do you love running live sound or doing technology set-ups for campus events, and conferences? Apply to add a campus job with Taylor’s busy Media Services department.
The department often gets calls about freelance projects, both paid and volunteer. As a major, you’ll hear about those opportunities directly and have a chance to take on an outside project.
Several of our production courses take field trips to media organizations. Travel with your class and learn more about how professionals do film,television, video and audio.
