Rochester Institute of Technology (RIU School of Film and Animation)

The RIT community engages and motivates students through stimulating and collaborative experiences. Our mission is to provide technology-based educational programs for personal and professional development. We rigorously pursue new and emerging career areas. We develop and deliver curricula and advance scholarship relevant to emerging technologies and social conditions. Our community is committed to diversity and student centeredness and is distinguished by our innovative and collaborative spirit.

Internal and external partnerships expand our students’ experiential learning. RIT is committed to mutually enriching relationships with alumni, government, business and the world community. Teaching, learning, scholarship, leadership development, and student success are our central enterprises.

The School of Film and Animation prepares leaders- the writers, producers, directors and creative specialists capable of advancing the medium via emerging technologies. Students develop a personal vision while developing the skills needed to create their own independent work and fulfill any creative or technical role in the film and animation industry. The school provides a creative community where students have the opportunity to discover their unique creative potential, explore their talents and express their message to the world.

By teaching live action filmmaking and animation in the same department the School of Film and Animation is strategically positioned to prepare our students to exploit the increasingly important interrelationships between film, video, and animation and computer technology. Hands on experience and opportunities for specialization characterize our programs. Live Action specializations include narrative fiction, documentary and experimental film and video production, script writing, performance and stagecraft. Areas of study in Animation include 3-D computer animation, experimental animation, special effects, drawn animation and stop motion animation. Strong emphasis is placed on the content and aesthetics of creative expression in film.
