Film & Media Production

Opportunities

As a Film & Media Production major, you’ll have lots of opportunities to take your skills further, round out your resume and have fun.

Envision Productions

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.

 

The Echo

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.

 

WTUR Radio

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.

 

Athletics

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.

 

Media 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.

 

Freelance Projects

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.

 

Field Trips

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.
