Meaningful artistic creation, regardless of previous experience, skill or talent is attainable by anyone with a strong desire to tell stories.
The Digital Filmmaking track within the Media Production and Performance emphasis, develops students into practicing production artists. Instruction emphasizes aesthetics, artistic direction, cinematography, non-linear editing, sound and story to ensure production proficiency. Our students work in the entertainment industry, gain acceptance within graduate film programs, compete in festivals and most importantly, create compelling film-works for public consumption.
