Wright State University (Motion Picture Production Program)

Wright State Department of Theatre Arts is playing a central part in this new American Renaissance in the performing arts. Our graduates are becoming some of the leaders in their fields. They're winning Emmy's (twice) for supervising HBO specials with Tom Hanks. They're dancing, singing, and acting on national television, on major regional tours, and on Broadway. They're studying at the leading graduate schools, such as NYU School of the Arts in Musical Playwriting, DePaul University, Northwestern University, and the Drama School of London. And they're charting new paths in the arts, developing new plays, working as designers, shop heads and technicians at professional theatres throughout America.

Students in this program have excelled in their profession, and their accomplishments have included producing and writing feature-length and short form films and winning Golden Globe and Emmy awards. Students' films have been awarded featured screenings and awards in the most important regional and national festivals in the country, including the Sundance Film Festival, the New York Expo of Short Film and Video, the Big Muddy Festival, the Black Maria Festival, The Charlotte Film Festival, the College and Independent Film Festival, the Athens International Film Festival, the David Wolper Documentary Achievement Reel, the Wexner Center, the Houston International Film Festival, and the Denver International Film Festival, among many others. Internationally, student films have won awards at the Cork International Film Festival in Ireland, the Calgary International Film Festival in Canada, and the Locarno International Festival in Switzerland. The motion pictures area has also won the Festival Jury Prize for the body of its students' film at the Festival Internacional de cinema in Portugal, as well as a featured sidebar at the British Short Film Festival of London. As well, students and alumni filmmakers have participated in the American Independent Feature Market, have won grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, have had their work broadcast on HBO and national PBS, and had their films purchased for distribution nationally and internationally. Students have worked in virtually all components of the film and television industry: including as an advertising creative director, as a Hollywood cinematographer, as a producer of features, as a computer special effects artist, as a videographer, as a writer in the Writer Guild of America, as a cinema scenic artist and designer, as a storyboard artist, as crew member for Hollywood features, as a director, as a DVD graphics designer, as a Technicolor specialist, and as editor for both feature and documentary projects, among other positions.
