Careers

  • Dynamic/Animated Web Designer – They develop and create websites and associated applications. Web designers create the look, layout and features of a website. The job involves understanding both graphic design and computer programming.
  • Director - Film directors are part manager, part artist. They oversee everything on a movie set and have to realize their artistic vision at the same time. Movie directors are responsible for the interpretation of a written script, using their vision and creativity, along with organizational and technical skills, to deliver a complete motion picture.
  • Post Production Artist - The post-production stage is the final stage involved in the actual making of the film, but it is by no means the easiest. Post-production artists oversee all editing, computer-generated effects, audio (sound effects, music, and design) and the transfer to final form.
  • Video Editor - The film editor must screen every scene in the film to ensure that the scenes sync-up and meet the expectations of the director and producers. They will cut entire scenes, retool certain scenes and, if necessary, call for scenes to be re-shot. Editors also analyze the timing of the film, because the film may have to be a certain number of hours and minutes in length.
