Tell me how Do I Become a TV Camera Operator?

Answer:

According to the BLS, most TV camera operators have a bachelor's degree in film or broadcasting. These programs typically combine classroom courses in film theory with hands-on training using camera equipment. Most offer comprehensive training in film and video production, rather than focusing on just TV camera operation. Therefore, in addition to learning camera skills and techniques, you may also do film editing, directing, lighting and even scriptwriting. This has the advantage of preparing you to work as part of a production team.

Many training programs are available through public colleges as well as private film schools. Some institutions' broadcast cable TV programs created entirely by students, and many even have their own television stations, providing real-world experience. However, even with a solid education, you may have to begin your career in an entry-level position, such as a production assistant, and work your way up to TV camera operator, especially since the field is very competitive. According to the BLS, job opportunities are expected to increase by only 2% from 2014 to 2024, which is slower than the national average.
