Cinematic Arts

The cinematic arts concentration provides students with the conceptual framework, historical context and technical skills necessary for the production of narrative, documentary or experimental projects in a fine-arts environment. In this emphasis, Cinema is treated as an artistic media — ideas are considered as important as technique. As an integrated production-based curriculum, the concentration provides study of film/video history, criticism & theory and the scriptwriting-proposal process, in tandem with a range of digital production and post-production tools that form the foundation for personal creative student work.
