What does an Associate Media Producer do?

Media producers oversee, design, and implement media projects working on strict schedules and deadlines and may be responsible for keeping a film crew under a specific budget. They are involved in producing the video and audio content used in commercials, movies, online channels, and mediums. They use their knowledge of software programs including FinalCut Pro or Avid to create their visual pieces and work closely with production crews, directors, producers, and sound engineers and videographers to oversee reproduction.

Media producers brainstorm subject matter and choose topics for the videos; they write scripts and titles, edit audio or video footage for media projects, and produce audio and video content. Media producers possess a solid understanding of technology to manage the creation of content for digital formats. They communicate with other production and project stakeholders to build engaging material that meets user needs, stays on budget, and achieves production goals. Media producers need a bachelor's degree in communications and fluency in relevant software and systems.
