Career Update: Media Production DC TV (Public Access Corporation of the District of Columbia)

I am pleased to announce I recently accepted an intern position as a Production Assistant / Editor with DC TV.  This role is part of the media production crew with this Washington, D.C. based public access television station.  Thus far, I worked as a PA for a piece shot on a local food bank and edited spots aired on television.  I am thrilled to have this opportunity to work alongside such a talented group with a vested interest in the community.  DC TV provides opportunities for members of the community to be SEEN and HEARD. 

DC TV provides local programming created by and for DC communities, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Providing a platform for individuals to share their own stories is one of the unique aspects that stuck out to me as an applicant.  I am eager to learn more about broadcasting and television production, while also being afforded the opportunity to share insight from my previous experiences.

Some of the responsibilities associated with the position are as follows:

  • Assist with producing, filming, and editing video content which adheres to standards for HD Cable Television channels, streaming and online channels and social media platforms
  • Production Assistant on field-based shoots, edit content to produce engaging narratives

Career Update: Media Associate (Social, Digital Content Production)

I recently accepted a summer project / temporary role through August 2019 with an innovative STEAM academy in Northern New Jersey.  In this role, I’ll act as photographer/videographer/editor for in-house production: social media content, short-form videos and slideshows.  My responsibilities will include coordination, production and post-production of strategically planned marketing photos/videos across two company locations serving Bergen County, New Jersey and Rockland County, New York.

This short-term opportunity is ideal since I am relocating to Washington, D.C. in late August.  This academy teaches kids how to code and program smartphone apps, film and edit digital movies and develop digital inventions.  I will manage the social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), utilize scheduling software (Buffer), shoot photos and videos (Canon DSLR), and edit (Creative Suite, Movavi).  I’m happy to partner up with this company because STEAM = STEM + Media Arts.  In recent years, I volunteered extensively at Liberty Science Center as an ambassador, while also training and mentoring new volunteers.  I support learning methods that increase critical thinking and offer hands-on learning experiences.  It is particularly important that young children, especially girls are exposed to opportunities to use knowledge and skills in ways that are practical and applicable to the real world.
