About the Student Production

In the past five years, this project has provided 23 students the opportunity to gain real world experience and knowledge in video production, as well as a portfolio asset. Collectively, the teams of students have created four institutional spots, a 2-minute promotional video and several short interview videos of students attending The University of New Mexico.

This year UCAM is looking for five talented students to create a new institutional spot. The students will gain professional experience directly related to commercial film production including directing, writing, producing, editing, managing project schedules, utilizing business applications and emphasizing marketing aspects of the film and commercial industry. They will be guided by the University Marketing Director, a University Marketing Representative and UCAM's TV Producer / Director.

Team Dynamics

The interdisciplinary student team consists of a Videographer, Editor, Sound Director, Creative Director and Producer. Each position has specific roles that are explained in the job descriptions listed on this site. However, as this project is interdisciplinary so are the duties required by each position in the team. Each member must be willing to offer support to all others. It is also important to highlight that there are no subordinate positions in relation to another. These positions have been created to encompass all aspects of the production, although position titles and duties may change to ensure team success.

Earning Class Credits

The promotional video project offer 3 hours of college credit through internship programs and independent studies to each student following successful completion of the 16-week project. Each intern is expected to work and record at least 135 hours throughout the semester to satisfy the academic program requirements for a three-credit class. Students working through an independent study structure will work with a faculty supervisor to assess the academic gains and evaluate the overall production.

How to Apply

The 2015 internship has been selected and will begin the production soon. Please contact Ethan Rule, rule7597@unm.edu if you are interested in finding out more information for the 2016 internship application process.
