Students are behind the camera from the first day of class and will learn about and explore the numerous visual, dramatic, and technical challenges that face directors. In addition to writing, producing, directing, and editing their own films, students assist other members of their crews in the roles of director of photography, assistant cameraperson, and gaffer/grip, providing everyone with extensive set experience. Ultimately, through intensive hands-on instruction, our goal is to empower students to tell stories artfully, cinematically, and originally.
Education is primarily of a practical nature. The professional skills of graduates, however, are based on solid theoretical foundations. The intensity of the learning process is evidenced by the number of hours of the course: 480 hours of study during the year of study and 320 hours of elective courses.
