The Los Angeles Film School Partners With Cloud-Based Live Video Production Platform make.tv
The Los Angeles Film School, a private media arts college located in the heart of Hollywood, and make.tv, a leading cloud-based live video production platform, have forged a strategic partnership to launch an online marketplace that connects the school’s students with brands and professional broadcasters looking to leverage the new technology.
According to the school, the launch of the “Hire a Producer” feature with certified student producers from school will serve as the base for the growing marketplace to connect creators and buyers.
As part of the partnership, make.tv has trained a number of students who are now certified to work with the platform, and will continue to hold regular training sessions throughout the term of the relationship. All make.tv certified students now are eligible to be hired by make.tv clients from around the world within the make.tv Studio, and are eligible to perform the job from wherever they are located.
When make.tv showed a sneak preview of its new product, the make.tv Selector, to more than 800 interested YouTube creators at YouTubeSpace LA in January, 10 students from The Los Angeles Film School were hired to demonstrate the make.tv platform from different work stations showing attendees how professional, low-budget broadcasts can be produced using make.tv.
“We’re excited to be the launch partner for this cutting-edge digital marketplace from make.tv,” said Diana Derycz-Kessler, president and CEO of The Los Angeles Film School. “This partnership not only gives our students hands-on experience with this game-changing, state-of-the-art technology, but it also allows them to secure work with major brands and productions for compensation.”
“Our passion at make.tv is to support live content creators everywhere at all levels,” added Damian Pelliccione, head of business development North America at make.tv. “By launching this innovative, new program with The Los Angeles Film School, we are not only providing potential jobs for students and alumni, but fostering and encouraging entrepreneurship.”
