The video and postproduction track through the visual communication program at Lone Star College-Kingwood trains students to create and distribute various types of visual content.

Filmmakers entertain and tell the important stories that can shape the lives of their audiences.

The video and postproduction track through the visual communication program at Lone Star College-Kingwood covers how to plan, film, edit and distribute visual content across various media types. This track offers two paths: an associate of applied science (AAS) degree in visual communication and a level II certificate in video and postproduction. Both ways prepare students to work on productions after graduation.

“This track allows students to find their niche or focus in the film or video industry while allowing them to better communicate with other production members,” said Jared Anderson, adjunct professor of visual communication. “As students move through the program, they will expand upon the basic concepts of filmmaking to create more elaborate projects.”

The video and postproduction program will specifically introduce people to filmmaking who have no previous experience. Students will learn various stages of production which will make them flexible and adaptable to the diverse nature of film production. Also, they will have the opportunity to produce their own content.

“This field gets me excited to get out of the bed every morning. It’s packed with a handful of the brightest visionaries in the world, and I look forward to telling stories that inspire the world with them,” said Alexis Ruiz Alvarado, current LSC-Kingwood student. Ruiz plans to graduate in 2021 with an AAS degree.

Graduates of the video and postproduction track are prepared for a myriad of career opportunities. Choices include producer, director, writer, location scout, script supervisor, cinematographer/director of photography, camera operator, audio technician, boom operator, video editor, sound designer and production assistant. Students are also trained in special effects and motion graphics.

“This program prepared me for my chosen field by educating me on the basics of video editing, lighting, cinematography and visual effects,” Ruiz said. “The portfolio class will even help me learn how to market myself in the job field.”

Requirements for the program include access to a decent computer and reliable storage media for large projects. Students will receive access to the Creative Cloud software for classes on campus but might need to purchase a subscription to work at home.
