The One-Year Digital Filmmaking Program is an intensive, hands-on program designed to prepare students for a career in the motion picture industry. This program teaches the art and craft of independent filmmaking by using an innovative project-based curriculum taught by award-winning filmmakers.
Over the course of the year, each student will create:
One 2- to 3-minute visual montage
One 3- to 5-minute narrative fiction film
One 3- to 5-minute documentary film
One 30-second commercial with special effects
One 8- to12-minute thesis movie in any genre
Crew on an additional 25+ student films
Crew with professionals on a feature-length motion picture
Students learn the art and craft of filmmaking and work in a variety of genres – fiction, commercials and documentary. The class is structured around small production teams in which students produce their own movies and crew on team member projects. In this way, students get personalized instruction, maximum experience with the equipment, and create material for their demo reels.
