The Filmmaking Certificate Program at BCTC offers a unique opportunity to work with industry professionals in a master class setting. This is a one-semester, 16 credit hour, full-time program geared for emerging filmmakers at all levels of experience. The program provides a hands-on overview of all the disciplines of filmmaking, from script to screen. Working directly with industry professionals from New York, Hollywood and the Midwest, students will create a number of short pieces during the semester.
The Filmmaking Certificate Program is also an excellent opportunity to explore and enhance your communicating and learning style as well as your media literacy. In the filmmaking process, you will explore linguistic, visual, aural, graphical, logistical and musical learning and communicating techniques.
Current students, undecided majors, emerging and practicing professionals and anyone interested in increasing their communication skills are urged to consider this program.
