Opportunities for Student Work-Study
The McCamish Media Arts Center employs a number of students each year through the work-study program to help with all of the audiovisual needs of the Falany Performing Arts Studio. What better way to learn about how to set up, light, shoot and edit a production than to get lots of practice on a regular basis as a student worker?
