Film faculty teach comprehensive introductory and advanced film production courses with an in-depth understanding of the entire creative workflow from concept to exhibition. As our film production curriculum is grounded in project-based instruction, candidates should demonstrate experience in a broad range of technical and creative skills. These include screenwriting, production planning, directing, editing, cinematography, and sound design as well as a solid grasp of current digital production workflows. We particularly value innovative and experimental approaches to creative practice as well as pedagogy.
