Digital Filmmaking and Multimedia Schools

There are so many career options for someone with digital filmmaking and multimedia training, the hardest part may be choosing. Options include film production, art and animation, and graphic design.

Specializations in digital filmmaking and multimedia

Here are just three specializations within digital filmmaking and multimedia you may be interested in:

  • Film and video editing and camera operation: shoot and record video, edit down raw footage, collaborate with the director and select the appropriate equipment.
  • Multimedia art and animation: create graphics and animation for film and video, research projects, develop storyboards, edit animations.
  • Graphic design: create images conveying a message or product, develop graphics for media such as logos and brochures, select colors, text style, images and layout, advise clients with effective strategies.

Digital filmmaking and multimedia certifications and degrees

Which certification or degree you go for will depend on which career in digital filmmaking and multimedia you choose.

For example, if you want to become a film or video editor, you'll typically need a bachelor's degree in film or broadcasting, where you'll take courses in subjects such as film theory, practical training, camera operation and video editing software, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS.gov). If you want to become a multimedia artist and animator, you'll usually need a minimum of an associate degree in graphics, art or a related field, where you may take courses in programming, graphics, painting, drawing and interactive media.

Many more degrees and certifications exist in this massive field. If you have an interest in film or art in any form, digital filmmaking and multimedia may have something to offer you.

Digital filmmaking and multimedia salary and career outlook

Salary and career outlook varies depending on which field within digital filmmaking and multimedia is being discussed.

For example, film and video editors earned a national mean annual wage of $69,490 as of May 2013, according to the BLS. For multimedia artists and animators, the national mean annual wage was $72,400 as of May 2013, according to the BLS.

With technology always rising, it's not surprising that some careers in digital filmmaking and multimedia may experience growth. Here are just two examples of that:

  • Employment of film and video editors and camera operators is expected to grow by 3 percent between 2012 and 2022, according to the BLS, with Utah, Washington and Colorado seeing the biggest percent change, according to Projections Central.
  • Employment of graphic designers is expected to grow by 7 percent between 2012 and 2022, according to the BLS, with Utah, Oregon and Arizona seeing the biggest percent change, according to Projections Central.
