Academic Media Production Guild (AMPG) is Missouri State University’s principal media production organization. AMPG ‘s aim is to bring together students across academic disciplines and to provide them with both the tools and the support they need to develop their craft in creative leadership. We provide hands-on opportunities for students; both peer-to-peer and professional to student by coordinating the production of student web series, and other worthy productions.
AMPG is dedicated to promoting media production by coordinating educational resources, networking and mentorship opportunities for aspiring media production students to help bring their ideas into the world and to create dynamic ventures that contribute to their passion in producing.
One of AMPG’s major initiatives is the “AMP guild” e-Magazine which will highlight our student work productions and sponsor of our series. Additionally the organization will run a fundraising event(s) to raise money for the production(s). Currently we just completed a successful fundraising campaign doing a casino night to raise finds for A Little Help, our current web series to be released in June.
In the future we would like to raise money to help send students to conferences like the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB), Broadcast Education Association (BEA) National Association of Television Programming Executives (NATPE) or Film Festivals to which they have submitted work or won awards.
