Scottsdale Community College (Motion Picture &Television Program)

The world of filmmaking and television broadcasting is an exciting one and it’s sure to keep growing. You can get ready to take part in it when you enroll in our classes.

Our two-year, hands-on program is the only one of its kind among the community colleges in Arizona. Hands-on means that you begin learning equipment and techniques from the first day of class. And you learn from professionals. All our instructors currently work in the fields they teach.

But, it doesn’t stop there. Enrichment opportunities, such as special workshops, speakers, new products demonstrations, and a library of screenplays are also offered as is helpful one-on-one advice when it’s needed. As a culmination of their studies, student work is evaluated by outside working professionals and can also be entered into our annual Student Showcase Festival where it will be judged by outside experts.

The mission of the Motion Picture/Television Department is to provide an education that will enable our students to go forth from their studies skilled and ready to excell in their chosen professions and who will create their arts guided by the belief that the best artistic effort is governed by a love of the humane, the inclusive, and the diverse.

The goal of the MP/TV Program is to provide students with the skills and knowledge necessary to enter the fields of motion pictures and television. These highly competitive, rapidly changing professions require cutting edge skills and an understanding of how the businesses are organized and how they operate.

Structurally, the MP/TV Program offerings are grouped in the manner of film and television productions: Pre-production, Production, and Post-production. Pre-production includes all those elements that are completed before shooting begins on a project. Production is the actual creation (shooting) of a film or television project. Post-production covers those activities which take the produced materials and assembles them into coherent wholes. Also included as part of the post-production process is the final necessary element of all entertainment/art/performance: the reaction of the audience, critics, and scholars.
