“The MGD department at RRCC has paved paths for me that I never knew existed. In the Videography AAS, I have discovered the limitless boundaries to my creativity, and I owe every bit of my success and career discovery of composing music for film, television and video games, to the VAMA department.” – Josh Horst (Videography AAS – Current Student) - 2020

Why choose Red Rocks Community College to improve your videography?

  • Personal attention - Many large universities offer courses with hundreds of students. Students have almost no interaction with their professors. At RRCC we offer personal attention to each student to help with planning and success in their education. And you can learn from professors active in the profession.
  • Cost - By completing all or part of your videography education at RRCC you avoid starting your career with a crushing amount of debt. For what you might pay for a semester at a major university you can nearly obtain an associate degree at RRCC. Even if you are just taking one or two classes, RRCC represents a value that cannot be matched anywhere. One 15-week class costs less than most weekend workshops through other venues.
  • Timeliness - Because our program is small we are able to adapt quickly to ongoing developments in the profession. While major universities may take years to create or alter course curricula, we are able to integrate the latest technology into our program quickly.
  • Equipment - Our computer labs, video and photo gear are state of the art and allow students to pursue their education using equipment that is used in the industry. This makes them competitive from the day they graduate.
