The Film Production Technology program offers an intensive curriculum of experiential learning that immerses students in the entire filmmaking process. We nurture passionate storytellers while training our students in the technical aspects of film production - from pre through post-production. Our classroom moves from lectures to workshops to partnerships with film and television productions, during which our students work as the crew and learn from distinguished industry professionals.

Bad Boys 3
We would like to congratulate our Alumni and recent students who just wrapped the Miami unit on the set of Bad Boys 3. We enjoy seeing our students applying skills and techniques learned in the classroom professionally in the field. Bad Boys 3, tentatively titled ‘Bad Boys For Life’, was shooting in Miami over the last 2 weeks and will spend around $10 million by the end of their time shooting in South Florida. The movie is set to release in January of 2020. We’re so glad to see these movies filming here in Florida again.
Mind The Gap
“Mind The Gap” Writer and Director Ilana Marks holds a local sold out premiere Thursday, March 21st. This film stars Erin Beute who was on “The Vampire Diaries” and Tanya Christiansen, a Sarasota based actress who was in “The Hate U Give”. “Mind The Gap”. is a psychological comedy about an off-Broadway actress whose life begins to unravel when her husband leaves her. It was made with the help of the Valencia Film Program Students from 2015 and alumni when they shot locally in Orlando.
Wonderland: Mad Tales of the Hatter
Last month, dozens of Valencia students from the 2018-19 year worked on a commercial for the Orlando Ballet’s April 2019 Premiere of Arcadian Broad’s Wonderland: Mad Tales of the Hatter. The ballet show follows the titular character, Mad Hatter, in his quest to save Alice from the Red Queen after having been banished from Wonderland and stranded in 1920s London. The commercial was filmed through Purple Anchor Films LLC, a multifaceted Production Company founded by Valencia Alumni Stephanie Pons and Freddie Aponte. Because of their dedication to this theater, Purple Anchor is now officially the Orlando Ballet’s exclusive partner in Commercial and Video work. This whimsical, colorful, and technically matchless project couldn't have been completed without the hard work of a dedicated group of filmmakers.
