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.

Welcome, Class of 2019-2020!
Welcome to our new Film Class of 2019-2020! They look pretty stoked to be tearing some muscle on the day all Valencia Alumni and Staff remember to be the infamous “C-stand day.” The day where sweat, tears, and soreness befall on a whole new class of eager future filmmakers. Going strong with a total number of 63 students this year, we’re excited to see what this class brings to the table! Settle in, but don’t get too comfortable - the fun is just beginning!
Congratulations, Class of 18-19! - July 2019
All good things must come to an end. Valencia Film Class of 18-19 had quite an adventurous year. To close this amazing chapter in their film school journey, our students were treated to a Valencia Alumni panel of established film professionals within the industry. The words of advice and wisdom towards these students was priceless. The panel included Gordy Jorian, Cherry Cuevas, Courtney Clark, EJ Bernard, and Alex Castillo. Congratulations, kiddos! We hope you find much success in the world of film and entertainment! Good luck!
Missy’s Musical Misadventure
After her wish comes true, Missy learns that turning her mundane world into a film musical would ultimately lead to disastrous results.
Missy’s Musical Misadventure was one of the six short films picked to be produced and filmed for the Film class of 2015-16. Alumnus Gerald Jackson, Jr. directed this whimsical comedy while our very own Teaching Assistant for Grip and Electric, Luis Poggi, served as Producer. Other alumni like Amy Austin served as Director of Photography, Harrison Thevenin as Sound Mixer, and others like Sierra Goins and our very own Wilmore Fowler, participated in the film as dancing extras.
Filled with heart-warming humor and spontaneous dancing, Missy’s Musical Misadventure collaborated with Full Sail University - filming some of its musical numbers in its back lots. This hit independent film short is now a finalist in Amazon’s “All Voices” Film Festival.
