The Filmmaking course is designed to teach the technical and conceptual fundamentals of filmmaking. The conceptual material covered in the course exposes students to
the history of world cinema, and encourages them to see film as more than entertainment through film screenings and critical analysis. Also covered are the various other ways filmmakers use the time-based medium in the fine arts, in stage production for live music and theater, in advertising
and marketing, and in the myriad forms film now takes online and in various other industries.
From exposure to class discussions and lectures on the diverse uses of film today students are encouraged to develop their own unique interests and creative goals to pursue with their filmmaking projects. Technically students are trained on the industry standard video editing software Adobe Premier, as well as being introduced to DSLR video camera systems.
