Q: What is it like working as a Video Producer?

November 2018

December 2018
Video Producer:
Glorified camera operator position. The job description stipulates greater responsibility and general ability than the position actually offers/requires. Reasonable benefits and fair compensation. Ability to do quality video work suffers from to sales culture that prioritizes high volume and immediate turn-around. Salespeople who dictate your work are paid a higher commission for media sales than for production work, so you tend to be stuck working with shoestring budgets. Think about your local auto dealership whose commercials still look like they were spit out in the 90s. Those ads still get made because salespeople are afraid to have the creative team rock the boat by messing with (i.e., improving) something that earns them a monthly commission. For these reasons, not an ideal position for someone hoping to build a quality reel. Would be a decent entry-level learning opportunity for someone with basic production skills, but I'm afraid Charter would always err on the side of over-qualification (rather than enthusiasm and potential to grow).

December 2018
"Not enough opportunity, pay, for what this town costs."
Video Producer in State College:
Pros: I truly hate working in this town. I’m a townie and I can’t wait to get out. But the summers are nice.
Cons: Cost of living (directed at rich students) vs what employers pay. There is nothing to do almost ever. It’s one of the cloudiest places and it’s so depressing to be here.

"Not enough pay for cost of living, not enough to do for a college town."
Video Producer in State College:
Pros: The summer
Cons: Everything. Nothing to do. It’s always cloudy. Housing is directed towards students. It’s awful.
December 2018
