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.
