Florida State University (School of Motion Picture, Television, Recording Arts)

Recently recognized by The Directors Guild of America for its distinguished contribution to American culture, The Florida State University College of Motion Picture, Television and Recording Arts provides professional training to a limited number of the very brightest students in the world. Small enrollments allow the faculty of professional filmmakers to maintain the high caliber of education necessary for graduates to succeed in an extremely competitive industry.

The Film School provides a one-on-one setting for the majority of instruction. Its curriculum focuses on the art, craft, and business of storytelling. The faculty of filmmakers is a blend of senior industry members that include Stuart Robertson, Richard Portman, Rexford Metz, and Chip Chalmers and young accomplished professionals such as Valerie Scoon, Reb Braddock, Tim Long, and Vicky Meyer all who have a record of excellent teaching in addition to their impressive industry credits. Faculty members work with students in a studio facility that consists of production offices, sound stages, screening theaters, digital production and post-production equipment, Super-16 and 35mm cameras, and grip and camera trucks.

FSU is the only film school in the country that pays for the production costs of all of its students’ films, thereby creating a level playing field for students to focus on art, craft and imagination, instead of fundraising. To ensure that this high caliber of education is available to the most talented student regardless of financial means, the university offers generous scholarships and assistantships, and tuition costs that are among the lowest in the country.

FSU is the only university in the nation that owns and makes available to its students Super-16 and 35mm production equipment, including grip and camera trucks.

Students work in dedicated production offices, shoot on professional sound stages, view their work in screening theatres tuned to industry specifications, and edit their work in non-linear digital post-production facilities.

The facility is open and available to students 24 hours a day. The Film School is among the largest and best-equipped facilities in the world devoted to film education.
