Filmmaking Studio 1

To realize an artistic vision in film requires an in-depth understanding of the technology, process, and tools used. In this workshop, students explore advanced concepts and techniques in film and digital media production through a series of exercises that evolve into increasingly complex collaborative projects. Film Production Certificate students are required to register for the corresponding CT lab.
