Film Production Technology


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.

Wonderland: Mad Tales of the Hatter

March 2019

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.

Courage To Stand

February 2019

On February 17th, over 450 people made their way to the AMC Altamonte Springs Theater to watch the Valencia and 89 Media Produced short film "Courage to Stand." Courage to Stand was filmed last Spring with the 2017-18 Film Class on Valencia Campus. Over thirty students and alumni worked on the film, including 2016-17 alumnus Ed Love, who produced the Faith-Based Film. The story centers on Bryan, a young college student taking a class on Evolutionary Sciences with an intimidating professor who challenges his Christian faith. A champion for the importance of Apologetics, Courage to Stand will make you ask not only what you believe, but why you believe it.

Diversity Mission Statement:

The Valencia College Film Production Technology program is committed to the cultivation of ideas, values and creative projects from diverse voices. This diversity is reflected in our student body and creative endeavors, manifested in a rich tapestry of ethnicity, gender identity, values, beliefs, cultural perspectives. Beyond a typical institutional diversity statement, it is a theory that informs our mission. In reaction to institutionalized discrimination against women and minorities in the film and television industry, Valencia College’s Film Production Technology program aggressively advances diversity in enrollment and encourages the development of creative projects that reflect the perspectives and experiences of our diverse community. Valencia College alumni and professional partners will carry these values of inclusion and equity into the industry and challenge the traditional representations of gender, sexual orientation and ethnicity.
