Filmmaking is a creative, dynamic process requiring the cooperation and creative input of many people. Good filmmaking requires that those involved have a broad knowledge base. The goal of this program is to graduate creative, independent filmmakers with the skills, ideas, and initiative to shape the industry. You will make short film and video productions, working with others and on your own.
