Kelsey King

My name is Kelsey King and I am a Television-Radio major with a Media Production concentration. I expect to graduate in the spring of 2016.

I am a huge fan of the entertainment industry and I hope to work the production side of a television show someday. When I picture myself in the future, I see my name in text scrolling across the screen after some television program or even movie. I know by seeing my name in the credits of some form of media, I will have immortalized my work. So even after I am done doing my job, my work will live on and continue to entertain people. And although I may not know the specifics, I do know that I want to work in television or film. As I start my studies, I definitely see myself leaning toward television, and my eyes have been opened to many jobs that I didn’t know existed. On one end, I can see myself doing something live, with the pressure of in the moment recording, like live studio directing. I think I work well under pressure and in the heat of the moment, and being able to make split second decisions. And on a very different note, I could see myself editing, and making sure the finished product is perfect for the audience. I like seeing the whole picture put together at the end. I also think I have talents when it comes to writing, but I'm not sure yet if that's necessarily the path for me. But know matter what specific job I do, whether I decide I am a director, writer, or editor, I am willing to do whatever it takes in order to get there.
