Video and Film Production, B.S.
Bob Gordon, program coordinator
The Video and Film Production program offers a combination of filmmaking, video production, and live production. Students are able to specialize in these aspects by their choices of required course options. The program builds upon a blend of theoretical and hands-on approaches to media production.
The Video and Film Production program emphasizes hands-on learning experiences whenever possible. Facilities include an equipment checkout system for students with a variety of cameras and on-location production equipment; a 40-foot mobile television production lab that averages about 40 live productions per semester; video editing facilities; two production studios including a 3,000 square foot TV/film studio; a Foley lab; large-scale LED wall facilities; and 360-degree virtual reality facilities.
The Video and Film Production program offers substantial cocurricular opportunities for its students. This includes several organizations focused on making films, a student run television station where students produce the programming and manage the station, and a unique varsity team for live television production whose work is frequently distributed nationwide. These opportunities are available to students from their first semester onward.
Video and Film Production students are able to build upon their unique talents and interests by combining this major with related minors such as Animation, Audio Production, Interactive Media, Film Studies, Writing, and others.
NOTE: Students must earn a C (2.00) or better in each course in the college in order to graduate.
