Film director George Cukor once stated, “You learn out of bitter experience, trial and error.” Imagine a program that gives you the opportunity to learn many of those life lessons while still in high school. Imagine going to school each day and attending small classes, where you are exposed to, and learn from, visiting professionals in the industry.

In Digital Filmmaking class students gain hands-on experience by writing, directing, and editing their own digital projects. The course is designed to give each student an overview of the many aspects of the motion picture industry, including writing, producing, directing, lighting, shooting, sound recording, and editing. This is achieved partially through lecture time, partially through critiquing the work of other filmmakers including fellow classmates, and partially through hands-on production. Through this process they not only gain a valuable and marketable skill, but will have strengthened their thinking skills by learning to think abstractly and conceptually.

In addition to learning the aesthetics of digital film production students also learn several computer programs including: Final Cut Pro, Photoshop, Garageband, Soundtrack, Motion, DVD Studio Pro and much more.



Note to Applicants:
Open to rising 9th-12th graders.

Applications are currently closed. 

Those who submitted applications have been contacted via e-mail to alert them of their audition time. 

For the interview, please bring a five minute sample of your work.  It's best to bring the video on an external drive in a QuickTime format or have it saved on your Google Drive. It can also be uploaded to You Tube or Vimeo. If you do not have a video please provide some creative writing samples or still photography.

I'm mainly looking for evidence that you have the aptitude and work ethic needed to learn the material and produce the work.
