The Professional Certificate Program in Digital Filmmaking is an intensive program of hands-on study that trains you to become a filmmaker skilled in shooting and editing both documentary and narrative films using contemporary tools and professional techniques. You’ll gain practical skills you can apply to your own projects or use to launch a career in production or postproduction. And you’ll put it all into practice with your final project, as you use real-world production formats to produce screening-ready digital films.

Through a combination of hands-on exercises, lectures and team projects, you’ll master essential digital filmmaking fundamentals, including hands-on training in camera operation, lighting, sound recording, editing and interview techniques. Advanced filmmaking studies will prepare you for your final project. Topics include cinematic storytelling, directing, cinematography, advanced editing, postproduction sound, titles, compositing, effects and DVD authoring. Working in small crews with digital cameras, you’ll complete projects that will refine your new digital filmmaking skills. Upon completion of the Professional Digital Filmmaking Certificate, you will have the knowledge and hands-on experience you need to enter the workforce with confidence, a substantial resume and demo reel.
