Dominic Valiente

TV/Film 1, TV/Film 2, & Broadcast

Hi! My name is Dominic Valiente and I am the TV/Film Production teacher here at Mission Vista. I have over ten years in the film and television industry. I started in scripted television working on one hour dramas for 20th Century Fox and ABC Family. The writers strike then forced me into reality TV where I produced numerous episodes of MTV's Emmy Award winning docu-reality series, "MADE". I took the skills I gained in TV production and began producing web content for both small businesses and large corporations such as Monster Energy Supercross, Inman News, and Cost Plus World Market.


I came to Mission Vista in the Spring of 2014 with a passion for teaching and sharing my experiences in production with young minds. My class is a CTE (Career Technical Education) class. I instruct students and train them with the theory that at the end of my class they would have a foundation to begin working in the Film/TV industry and/or be able to pursue clients to make videos and get paid!In my classes we use professional Canon DSLR cameras and we have an amazing Mac computer lab with Adobe Creative Suite that allows students to create their videos with professional editing software. Each term students produce projects such as music videos, PSA's, profile videos and short films. Students will complete my courses with a portfolio of content that they can use in a sizzle reel should they decide to pursue a career in production. Thank you for visiting our class website and please check back for updates and featured videos!
