Red Deer College (Motion Picture Arts)

At Red Deer College, our focus is on learning and student success. Our instructors are devoted to teaching with a student-centered approach. Our up-to-date technology and state-of-the art facilities serve learners in certificate and diploma programs, university transfer, degree completion, credit-free courses, and high school upgrading

The Applied Degree in Motion Picture Arts enables students who have completed two years of post-secondary theatre studies (or equivalent) to expand and apply their primary theatre training to the rapidly growing motion picture, television and multimedia industries. The two years of completed theatre studies is followed by a program year (3rd year) of intensive theory and hands-on instruction culminating in an advanced certificate in Performance or Production. Students may then go on to the final (4th year) which is a credited mentored work experience the equivalent of two four-month terms or the opportunity to complete a substantial motion picture project. The program has two streams: the Production Stream and the Acting Stream.

The motion picture industry is a major contributor to the North American economy and is at the forefront of the digital revolution. The producers of feature films, television series and commercials seek gifted storytellers, actors, artists and technicians with strong backgrounds in the dramatic arts. Existing theatre programs provide a solid foundation for advanced study in narrative motion picture acting and production. The MPA program provides students with the specific skills and experience they need to gain an advantage in this highly competitive industry.

Graduates of the Production Stream will apply their broad-based understanding of the nature of production to pursue multiple job tracks as their careers progress. Typically, graduates will begin employment at entry levels in various areas of the industry, including cinematography, camera operation, digital editing, production design, sound recording, production management, and special effects. Some graduates may choose to act as self-employed contractors in their own creative business ventures.

Acting Stream graduates will be prepared to audition for performance roles in feature films, movies of the week, series television, commercials, and voice-overs.

With experience and proven ability, graduates from both streams may also advance into entrepreneurial roles as directors, writers, and producers, supervising content creation in a wide variety of current and emerging media.
