Focus on production, screenwriting, 2D animation, 3D animation, or stop motion animation, while exploring the artistic, technical, historical, and business aspects of the motion picture industry.
During the first year, students choose an area of study (live-action production or animation) and learn the basics of film and audio production in terms of both practice and aesthetics. The core of the four-year curriculum is an organized sequence of productions. While all students do the basics in all aspects of production, live-action may create individual specialties relative to the genre, technology, and creative specialization. Animation students typically perform all aspects of short film production themselves but may tailor their education to emphasize desired specialties such as character design, storyboarding, character rigging, etc. By the end of the senior year, students can skillfully direct, shoot, write, edit, and produce their own creative visions and do so in their senior thesis project. Production students also have the option of concentrating on Cinematography, Sound Design, Post Production, Creative Producing, Special Effects/Compositing, and Art Direction.
