My name is James Pruett, and I am pursuing a career in video production. I currently serve as a full-time production assistant for the City of St. Charles Media Department, a part-time camera operator for the City of O'Fallon Communications Division, a freelance video producer for Creative Circle, and a freelance camera operator for the St. Louis Blues Hockey Club. In 2012, I graduated from Missouri State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mass Media Production and a minor in Marketing.
I have experience with developing video content, both for television and social media, camera operation, videography, editing, audio mixing, script writing, and serving as talent, both on-camera and through voiceovers. In regards to software, I have worked with Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe After Effects, Adobe Photoshop, Avid Media Composer, Final Cut Pro, Apple Motion, and Tightrope Media Services. I am able to hit the ground running if given the opportunity; and I am always eager to learn more. I have obtained invaluable experience through internships with the St. Louis Blues Hockey Club, Monsanto Media Services, the City of St. Charles Media Department, and the City of St. Louis Communications Division. I have also worked in video production for the City of St. Peters Cable Department and Cordell Practice Management Group. Some of my work is available for viewing on my YouTube channel, which is linked on my profile. Additional company sensitive samples of my work are available on request via private YouTube links.
I have found video production to be enjoyable and rewarding. I am confident that with hard work and dedication, I will have continued success in this field. I am excited about the opportunities that are ahead of me.
I have been in the industry since 2010.
