The Cinema Studies Program curriculum includes production as well as critical studies courses. Students have the opportunity to explore various dimensions of cinema and to become familiar with a broad spectrum of media.
Student-produced films are often shown during special film screenings and as a senior project. Some advanced film courses provide samples of student work through the video platform, Vimeo.
Cinema Studies Program majors may edit and fine-tune their films in the Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman Cinema Studies Center for Media Education and Production, a space on the second floor of the Apollo Theatre. The suite includes a postproduction lab, a sound recording studio and isolation booth, a multipurpose space that can function as a shooting studio with green screen, a color correction suite, and a simple animation room.
Select students also have opportunities to screen their films in the 61-seat screening room.
