Musicians Institute (Film Institute of Technology)

The six month (two quarter/30 credit hour) Film Institute of Technology℠ program is an all-inclusive course that trains students in the aesthetic and technical skills of directing music videos and commercials. In lectures and hands-on workshops, students learn basic and advanced techniques of directing from the perspectives of theory, composition, casting, acting, and art direction, including the director's role in production and how it relates to managing the key departments of the production set. Students study both the aesthetic and mechanical differences between short-form music videos and commercials and other forms of film production with a hands-on approach that takes them through every phase of the actual production process. Students learn cinematography in 35mm, Super-16mm, 16mm and HD formats while also gaining a solid foundation in digital non-linear editing and compositing. Practical music industry career skills include pitching ideas to potential clients, bidding and budgeting productions as well as setting up an independent production company. The program culminates in a final project in which each student directly applies the skills of directing, producing, cinematography, editing, and compositing in creating a professional-level music video or commercial for their demo reel.
