ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA, USA, Oct. 6, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — David Matias of Arlington, Virginia was recently featured in Disrupt Magazine where he discussed how an aspiring artist or entrepreneur can succeed in the broadcast operations.

David Matias commented on three specific steps a person must take to pursue a career in broadcast operations:
“1. Stay up to date with the latest technology and industry trends. Television, movies, the entertainment industry as a whole is changing at an ever increasing rate. A philosopher/scientist once said that ‘with every year the increase in change increases. This idea applies even more to the technology and entertainment industries. Consider that now almost anyone can make a short film on their camera or phone. se is great for democratizing content and artistic expression, but it also means that as an operations expert, you need to be on the cutting edge of technological advancements.
2. Be able to work well under pressure and meet deadlines. I assume that anyone reading this article has worked in the broadcasting industry or at the very least aspires to do so and has watched a lot of TV and movies. You’ve probably seen the fictional settings where people sweat and scramble to meet a deadline. Although it may be heightened a bit for dramatic effect, it is not pure fiction. The broadcast industry is driven by deadlines and ever-changing ideas and demands. If you are a person who likes simplicity and unchanging routine, the broadcasting industry is not for you. If you like having macro lenses and a demanding environment that can be really fun and fulfilling, then this is a good choice.
3. Have great attention to detail. It cannot be underestimated. With filming, we talk about angles, cuts, filters, timing to the nearest second. If you are not comfortable with, or I would even say driven towards, high attention to detail, then Broadcast Operations is not for you. I mentioned a few reasons why broadcasting may not be for people, this is not to sound negative but just to be realistic. It may seem like a lot of fun and quite glamorous working in television or film, but it is hard work and sometimes relentless.
David Matias from Arlington, Va., summarized the elements necessary for a career in broadcast: “To be successful in the broadcast operations industry, you need to stay up to date with the latest technology and industry trends, be able to work well under pressure and meet deadlines and have a strong attention to detail.If you have an artistic or creative bent and possess or are able to lean on these necessary building blocks, you might have what it takes to be a part of the exciting realm of the television, film and broadcast industry that is the operational side.
