Film and Video Production Technology: Associate in Applied Science Degree

The Film and Video Production Technology curriculum prepares students in entry-level employment in film, video, and associated media. Instruction provides training in all aspects of film and video production from pre- to post-production, preparing students for careers in the film industry or independent/artistic production.
The first year content includes extensive hands-on exposure to the entire production process. In the second year, students design and create independent short films and videos in a range of styles, genres, and formats.

Graduates may find employment as entry-level crew members in feature or short films, commercials, and industrial, educational, and documentary productions. Other opportunities include entry-level employment in pre-production and post-production areas of film and video. Graduates are also encouraged to explore careers as independent filmmakers and film/video artists.

This curriculum complies with the standard approved by the State Board of Community Colleges.

Students may be required to take one or more developmental courses as a result of pre-enrollment placement tests; therefore, the student may need more than the minimum number of semester hours listed for graduation. Developmental courses for this program may include Readiness Level Reading, English, and/or Math and other courses in developmental Reading, English, Math, Biology and Chemistry.
