A Day In The Life Of A Production Specialist Engineer
Since the early 1990s, Wired Production Group has been dedicated to providing the highest-quality video production services in Iowa and across the US. In the live events industry, we are proud to have four incredible production specialist engineers on our staff who take the live video at our events. From developing new LED displays for clients to directing our nationwide live streaming services to corporate video production and more, we never stop pushing the limits of what we do for our clients. Today, we’d like to share information about the newest addition to our video production team, Clayton Walters.
Clay joined our family in the summer of 2018 after years in the video production world. Before coming to our team, Clayton graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a Bachelor’s Degree in Electronic Media and a minor in Business Communications. In college, he was a sports and news videographer, editor, and reporter. After graduation, he worked as a video production specialist for the Quad Cities River Bandits and was a freelance video editor for the Dallas County Public Health Department.
Clayton is proficient in the Adobe Suite, which came in handy during his time working for Iowa Farmer Today, where he designed print, online, and promotional materials for the magazine. After five years in graphic design, he knew he had to return to his passion: video. In the last year at Wired Production Group, he has dedicated his time to improving his skills and continues to challenge himself daily. He has focused on his drone videography skills, LED technology techniques, and continues development of his live streaming service abilities. We are very lucky to have someone who has such a wide variety of experience on our crew!
Outside of work, Clayton and his wife, Monica, enjoy traveling. They have enjoyed many trips across the North Atlantic Ocean to Europe. Some of their adventures include Spain, England, Ireland, and Greece…all of which are filled with arts, food, wine, and checking out what the history of the world has to offer. When he’s closer to home, he spends time outdoors and volunteers with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources. They are also the proud parents of one cat, Beau.
Stay tuned for more adventures of Clayton Walters at Wired Production Group! We are very excited to continue to watch Clayton grow alongside our company for many years to come. Thank you, Clayton, for your hard work and dedication.
