Student Job Description


Position Description:  The Audio/Video Production Specialist position supports the UNI community by recording, editing, encoding, and providing appropriate final products to users. Under faculty/staff supervision, the Specialist gathers a wide variety of equipment, and travels to various campus spots for recording audio and/or video. They setup necessary equipment either on-location or in the TV studio, and record activities using one- to- four full high-definition cameras.  Afterward, they pack, return, and secure equipment.

Under faculty/staff supervision, the Specialist also edits audio and/or video materials—providing graphics and audio/video correction as needed— and encodes final sequences into formats required for distribution to clients. On occasion, the Specialist uploads files or makes DVDs.

The Specialist may work nights and weekends on occasion when there are events we have to document (guest speakers, conferences, volleyball matches, marching band performances, etc…). The schedule is different for each week depending on client needs. Although we do sports, documentaries, and music videos, mostly we are called upon to record and edit the many conferences, speeches, building dedications, other special, campus activities/events, and virtually anything else UNI-related people want. We have a small studio; and have 5 editing systems. We work during break periods if situations require, and if students are available.

The Specialist will work an uneven schedule (students just work when the jobs come in). Once they are trained, most students average about 7 per week depending on our job needs and their own class and other-job schedules. There are slower weeks and very busy ones so the above prediction won’t always be accurate.
